Shutout

C.C. Sabathia tossed a complete game shutout against the lowly and fading Seattle Mariners last night. Gone are the days when a game like this in mid-September could change the direction of a division race, but it still feels good to shut them down completely.

Somehow, the Tribe managed to get five runs on five hits and a walk. How could they do that, you ask. Ah, the sexiness of the long ball. Back-to-back jobs by Hafner and Blake in the second. Even Omar got in on the action.

This brings up the important question of what Shapiro plans to do this offseason about who will be manning 3b in 2005 (verily, the long-awaited 2005). Casey Blake has had a terrific year (.272-25-73), especially for a guy who is making less than $400k, and I wouldn't be offended at all if we just sent Aaron Bleepin Boone (whose numbers when healthy are remarkably similar to Casey's) to the Red Sox for a minor prospect or two, just so they could have their way with him.
