Ned: They play “Sweet Caroline” during the game, and the Standels
“Dirty Water after wins, along with “Tessie” by Dropkick Murphys. What
do they have in Cleveland?
Mike: Ned, in Cleveland we have John Adams, who plays the bass drum in

Ned: What do these players have in common?

I remember when Sonny Seibert threw a no-hitter for Cleveland. Another

Ned: How about Chuck Hinton, Joe Azcue and Rocky Colovito? I had them in baseball cards.
Mike: Chuck Hinton was the first baseball card I ever owned. Joe Azcue used to
bless himself before every pitch. My aunt the nun liked him.

Ned: Funny to see Kevin Millar introduce the Sox. Last I heard he was still an Oriole.
Mike: His last name is a cry for attention. It should be Miller. What, he has to be different?
Ned: Think Boston needs to spread their offense out a little more?
Mike: Their production is off—compared to last night. I’d be concerned. 13 or 14 more innings and the Indians could be right back in this game.
