They're gonna boogaloo down Broadway and come back home with the loot
Congrats go out to Shaun Clancy, owner and operator of Foley’s NY Pub and Restaurant in midtown Manhattan, for being profiled in the latest edition of Entrepreneur Magazine.
I’m not telling you anything you don’t know, of course. I believe all my readers are subscribers to Entrepreneur, right? But it’s impressive to see Shaun’s stock has risen from my meager attempt to praise Foley’s in a mailbag column two years ago to this grander state of pub pub.
And if you’re ever in New York, be sure to pay Shaun a visit, will ya?
EXCRUCIATING MINUTIA OF THE DAY…
- In addition to the Adam Miller news, Lonnie Soloff offered a few other injury updates: David Dellucci (strained left calf) is en route to Columbus to begin a rehab assignment that can last up to 20 days. He’ll initially be limited to DH duties, but he’ll progress to outfield activities by the middle of the coming week.
- Jake Westbrook (Tommy John elbow surgery) is a little more than 10 months post-op and is throwing all his pitches off the mound. When he reaches 11 months post-surgery (around May 12), he’ll begin getting into simulated game activities.
- Scott Lewis (strained left forearm) is rehabbing in Cleveland and is scheduled to pick up a ball early this coming week.
- Jhonny Peralta was back in the lineup today. His sore left forearm is not a major concern.
- The Indians’ relief crew has a 1-2 record and 5.95 ERA in 11 games. The relievers have worked a total of 39 1/3 innings, or an average of nearly 3 2/3 per game. The Tribe’s greatest preseason concern has come to fruition. The starters aren’t going deep, and the bullpen is taxed.
- Eric Wedge said the Indians don’t really have any other adjustments that can be made to the ‘pen at the moment. “We’ve already got eight guys now,” he said. “The bullpen starts with the starting pitching. We need to get deeper into the ballgame and be more efficient. That’s how you start to get into a routine with your bullpen and make sure these guys get enough rest.”
- Having witnessed six solo shots to right field yesterday, Wedge offered a no-brainer take on new Yankee Stadium. “The ball is definitely carrying better than it did at the old park,” he said.
- The Indians lead the AL in walks with 54. Six of the top 20 individual walk leaders in the AL are Indians.
- It’s early, sure, but Victor Martinez’s 1.097 OPS ranks 14th in the AL.
- C Carlos Santana is already on fire at Double-A Akron. He homered for the third time this season in Friday’s 3-1 win over Bowie and now leads the Eastern League with 12 RBIs. He has a .371 on-base percentage, with seven walks in eight games.
- 1B Michael Aubrey is batting an International League-best .531 (17-for-32) at Triple-A Columbus.
