I got Grady! I am now satisfied. That does not mean I will not make any trades in the future but that was my only real goal so now I have succeeded. A special thanks to Darion over at Braves World for accepting my trade. Although I think most people would probably say he came out on top. He probably did when you take away personal factors. 🙂
This is Grady when he found out he was successfully traded to my team. He was also pretty happy to learn that he was worth Teixeira, Granderson, and Damon to somebody.
The Indians won today and in dramatic fashion.
Jeremy Sowers had a strong outing giving up only one run and three hits. He walked one and struck out two. The other Indians relievers combined for five scoreless innings. The Indians and Mariners were locked in a one-run tie until the bottom of the ninth when Chis Gimenez hit a three-run home run to give the Indians the 4-1 win.
Indians’ pitching has improved a lot in the past couple of days and I could not be happier. I love that all of the fifth rotation spot contenders have all started to step up and show that they deserve the fifth spot. Nothing makes good players like a little competition.
My parents and I are going to Kansas City this Thursday to see Clemson play in the first round of the NCAA tournament. I am so excited! As I mentioned before the Tigers are a #7 seed. They will playing Michigan at 6:10 Thursday night. We are also planning on seeing Maryland play before Clemson as well.
