Buona Pasqua

Happy Easter.

I'll be busy today getting ready for a small gathering. You know, 20+ people. We'll eat wedding soup, fried eggplant, stuffed shells and ham. We'll play a little bocce, and at 1:05, I'll listen to Tom Hamilton.

Yesterday, the Tribe righted the ship thanks to rookie Fausto Carmona and veteran Todd Hollandsworth. Carmona was great on the hill. He kept Detroit's big sticks guessing and missing. Hollandsworth had three hits and went over the fence to rob Marcus Thames (say it like the river in London, England). In a previous post, I mentioned the Tribe's depth. That's what separates winners from losers in the bigs. When you can get a win over a division rival with essentially your sixth starter on the hill, you're in good shape. When your fourth outfielder is something better than a spot filler, you've got a chance to win some games you might otherwise lose.

Cliff Lee starts today. Let's see him develop into an ace (and get him under a long-term contract ASAP).

I hope they win again today. The Rhino will be in the kitchen toiling over a leg of lamb. Otherwise, if things go poorly, it may be Campbell's soup and grilled cheese for his kids' Easter dinnner.
