“Special”
« on: May 26, 2018, 06:46:26 am »
Cracks me up how every post game interview the last two games has Astros players inserting “that’s why this team is special (or similar)” in response to Clevinger saying “they’re not that special” last week.

Gonzalez and Altuve yesterday, Bregman and Morton Thursday.

The Indians are beginning to annoy me.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

Me, too. Between the Tyler Bauer and Clevinger remarks and the throwing the ball around after the third out, the tribe has moved up my teams to dislike list. They had so much equity with Major League, too.

In case anybody missed it, here's Thursday:

“We got a special team,” said Morton, “and that win, for me, and being on the field for that game right there, with how it was just a complete team win is really rewarding for me.“

“For me, it was a special game to be a part of with the group,” Morton said.

“Just a good feeling to put a couple more runs up there,” Marisnick said. “This is a special team.”

“That’s one of the things that this offense does a very good job of, swinging at pitches to hit,” Bregman said. “When we did tonight, we drove in runs and it was special to see.”

And yesterday:

"We had a really good energy in the last three innings," Marwin Gonzalez said. "We're playing 100 percent baseball. We never give up. They have good pitching, and they shut us down for seven innings, but that's what this team is capable of doing, and that's what's special about this team. We can do damage in one or two innings."

"It seems like until we see the 27th out against us, we're going to keep playing," Altuve said. "We can hit homers with Springer, Bregman, Marwin. We can bunt. We can play defense. That's why this team is special: We do a little bit of everything."

You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

When you win 22 straight, or however many it was, you can talk crap, but when you give up 19 unanswered runs blowing leads, you need to STFU.

Ha, I had not seen the Marisnick quote. Good stuff.

Yep. The Indians are "right there with them."  I think he meant in the same ballpark. Through Sunday.
