This team just keeps winning. Keep the magic coming. The combination of awesome pitching, stellar offense, outstanding defense and socks with orange rings is making my heart go all a flutter.

Major League II anyone? It was nowhere near the masterpiece that its predecessor was. Omar Epps is never going to be the real Willie Mays Hayes. Charlie Sheen's character wasn't nearly as compelling this time around. And the strange veiling of Camden Yards as Cleveland made me want to puke a little bit. But certain things about it were pretty great nonetheless.

Who didn't find the new outfielder, Isuru Tanake, pretty funny, albeit a bit over the top? And the new catcher, Rube, made me think of how I would be had I been just thrown onto a major league team; reserved and well mannered around a group of much more talented behemoths.

Oh, Major League II. At least it was watchable, unlike its successor that lost over $40 million. Yikes.

Tonight, instead of Rick Vaughn vs. Jack Parkman it is Wei-Yin Chen vs. Jose Abreu. He is big strong and intimidating. But in the movie, the underdog strikes out the Chicago slugger and wins the game. A repeat in real life would be nice.
