Ain't no way, never surrender

Regarding tonight's other big game in the Cleveland sporting scene, well, I think this link pretty much says it all.

 

EXCRUCIATING MINUTIA OF THE DAY...

 

  • The news of the day is that Travis Hafner's right shoulder is still bothering him. No, don't double-check the timestamp on this entry. This isn't May 30, 2008, when Pronk first landed on the DL. It's May 30, 2009, and Hafner, nearing the end of a rehab assignment during his second DL stint with the shoulder problem, is still sore. The rehab runs up Wednesday. At that point, he either has to come back here to play or to get further treatment and restart the whole process.
  • Hafner is batting .429 (12-for-28) with a homer, three doubles and six RBIs in eight games on the rehab. That's encouraging. The shoulder news is not.
  • Anthony Reyes will visit Dr. Lewis Yocum in California on Tuesday to get a second opinion on his right elbow, but it's pretty much a certainty that Reyes will have an ulnar nerve transposition performed on the elbow, ending his '09 season. The recovery from such a procedure is four to six months. "It sucks," Reyes said. "I worked my butt off this offseason."
  • Grady Sizemore will continue to DH these next two days before the Indians decide whether or not to test out his inflamed left elbow.
  • RHP Joe Smith's rehab from a strained right rotator cuff begins tonight in Columbus.
  • We've had six hours, 32 minutes worth of rain delays this week. 
  • Brad Grant, director of amateur scouting, said this year's Draft class is heavy on pitching, at both the high school and collegiate levels. Safe to assume the Indians will be targeting pitching with the 15th overall pick in the first round. The Draft takes place June 9-11.
  • Earlier this month, I informed you the Indians will have paid Masa Kobayashi $95,663.75 per out, when all is said and done. Here's another troubling tally. The Indians signed David Dellucci to a three-year, $11.5 million contract to hit right-handed pitching, right? Well, in three years, Dellucci racked up a grand total of 127 hits off right-handers. That comes out to $90,551.18 per hit off a righty.
  • Jim Ingraham of the News-Herald did a much simpler mathematical equation when he pointed out that the Indians will have paid Dellucci $4 million per RBI (1) by the end of this season. It's good work if you can get it.
  • The Indians are fourth in the Majors in runs scored and third in the big leagues in on-base percentage.
  • From the "who would have thunk it" department, RHP Matt Herges' 8 1/3-inning scoreless streak is a season-long by a Tribe reliever. Lefties are 2-for-23 off Herges.

Poor Reyes… What’s up with all of the Tribe’s potential getting taken out by season ending injuries?! I wish him a speedy recovery… hanging out with Miller…
