Buh Buh Buh Benny And The Jets

Is this really happening? Broadcasters and writers referring to Fake as "clutch"? After last night, it is hard to argue as DCB's favorite whipping boy delivers in a big 6 run 7th inning as the Local Nine take care of "Doc" Halladay and the Jays 6-1. Casey, with the bases loaded in a 1 -0 deficit, bangs one off the wall and the Tribe never looked back. Another big hit delivered in a PH role by Benny Francisco. This dude is dinero en el banco (money in the bank) as he takes a Jeremy Accardo (Accardooooh how are youuuuu) pitch and smokes it to the wall in left scoring two. What an inning and what a much needed explosion!

CC Sabathia looks like he is back. The big man strikes out 9 in 7 innings for his second win. “We’ve been struggling to score for C.C. and to be able to do it feels good,” said Fake, a .228 career hitter with runners in scoring position who is batting .429 (15-for-35) with all but one of his 24 RBIs this season coming in that situation.

Even Pronk showed up with 2 hits and reaching base three times. Toronto deserved to lose after optioning down DCB favorite Joe Inglett to AAA before the game. How dare they.

You're right, I was definitely bummed that I didn't get to see Joe Inglett, and with Johnny Mac on the DL it made it even worse. I miss those guys.
