The Indians were in Anaheim again tonight after getting blown out yesterday. They went to a young guy who's been their stopper this year-Mitch Talbott. Kruky, what do you think of this kid out of the Tampa Bay system?
Good kid, good pitcher, throws the ball-I like that. But, you know what? I bet they'd rather have Lebron on the mound. Can you imagine that? That big dude staring down at you?
Oh-ha-ha! Now that would be scary!
Yes! Lebron can do it all!
Hey now-pitching isn't easy, you know!
Here it comes! Can you believe it EY?

I can believe it! Pitchers, man! Always sticking together!
[Highlight of Austin Kearns hitting homerun]
Talbot has thrown 72% of first pitch sliders for strikes this year. Pretty incredible, stuff, actually.
(In seat formerly occupied by Eric Young and previously occupied by Eduardo Perez)
Man, could a slider ever tie me up!
[Highlight of Mitch Talbot retiring 6 straight]
Booney, what's the toughest slider you ever faced?
Man, that's like picking my least favorite food! Tons of 'em make me sick, you know?
C'mon man, toughest one!

(In seat formerly occupied by Eric Young and previously occupied by Eduardo Perez, which is now in the space that Aaron Boone and his seat used to occupy)
Man, it's hard to say but I can tell you this-it was either a Yankee or a Red Sox pitcher. Those guys-man, they can dominate!
[Highlight of Lou Marson single]
We see Lou Marson here, a young guy struggling with a rare single-
Hey, now, man! You gotta let me finish!
Let the big man finish!
Alright, OD-what you got?
Yankees, man! Gotta be the Yanks!
So you're finished?
(Returning to what was his chair after it was Eduardo Perez's chair)
Oh he is finished! Ha ha ha!
Done! Over! Ho ha ha!

Back back back back! Ha!
We're going to Buster and Gammo-guys, what's your take on this young Indians' team?
[Olney and Gammons in split-screen, live via satellite from New York and Boston, respectively]
I think Marson is a piece the Yankees don't really want. They've got a great young hitter at catcher, Jesus Montero. There's a lot of talk that he'll move off but I'm not convinced.
Marson would be a great fit in Boston-hardworking, smart kid. Would be great to get him soon so he can receive tutelage from both Martinez and Varitek. That would be huge for the young guy's confidence.
Thanks, guys. So, the Indians managed to eke this one out tonight but long term, what's going on with this team?

Young, man. This is such a young, young team-Sizemore is so young, Cabrera, super young. Austin Kearns, still a young guy.They need some veteran leadership.
The key has always been Hafner, right? Will Pronk return? Kruky, what's your take?
[Highlight of Austin Kearns triple]
I think I could eat Hafner. It would take a few hours but I bet I could do it.

(On Karl Ravech's shoulders)
Kruk! Kruk! Kruk!
Indeed, sir! Ha! Ha! Ha!
(Suspended from ceiling in Mr. Potter's wheelchair)
I wouldn't bet against it! You guys know Kruk! Ho-ha-ha
(In sleeping bag on floor, playing MMORPG)
(Standing in baby pool)
He-ho-ha-ha! If you could eat a man that big, you could probably play for the Yankees or Red Sox! Am I right Dave and Curt?
Now that's a question I want answered! Who's better, Yankees or Red Sox? We'll examine, after the break!
