Game 17 Open Thread - Kansas City Royals at Cleveland Indians

Sanchez (1-0, 6.39 ERA) vs Lowe (2-1, 3.50 ERA)

Person of Interest

Jason Kipnis - 25-year-old left-handed 2B for the Cleveland Indians,

  • Holds several of his high school football receiving records.
  • Decided to go to college at Kentucky. Transferred to Arizona State where he was the 2009 Pac-10 Player of the Year.
  • Indians drafted him in the 2nd round of the 2009 draft
  • Before the 2011 season, he was around the 30th best prospect in baseball.
  • He hit 7 HRs last season in 36 games with the MLB club.
  • He is a bit unlucky this season with a 0.238 BABIP
  • His fielding is below average.
  • Love this description from Baseball Prospectus: ".. a lot of intensity, and surprising tools into a small package. He works the count extremely well and makes consistently hard contact, and he has some surprising pop for his size." Oh yea.

Poll

With Pat Summit retiring as the women's basketball coach at Tennessee this past week, I was wondering if anyone as watched an entire women's college or pro basketball game from beginning to end?
