Day Off Notes

HawkismsMorning,

Day off before heading out to a three game series with the Washington Nationals, then my home state of Ohio for another three game run with the Cleveland Indians and then its north to Toronto, Canada for a four game series with the Blue Jays before returning home for another 10 game home stand before a well deserved day off.

The boys are sitting on top of the American Central division with a 1/2 game lead over Kansas City and Minnesota and a full game ahead of Cleveland and Detroit.

Jake Peavy was awarded his Golden Glove on this past Sunday before the game. From what I understand they team will be wearing the 1983 team uniform on Sundays during the season as a tribute to the team winning the American League West and the first post season appearance since the 1959 World Series win.

Tyler Flowers hit the first home run of the season at his first at bat for the year.

Alex Rios is running hot with the bat at the moment: a .364 batting average, 8 hits, 4 runs,3 home runs, 5 RBIs, 3 walks and 2 stolen bases.

Gordon Beckham is also in the top 50 with: .333 batting average, 6 hits, 1 run, 1 RBI,

ON the pitching side of stats Jake Peavy has the best ERA now at 1.50 with Chris Sale right behind him at 1.84. Nate Jones and Jose Quintana are both is double digit ERA now but hoping that will come down as the season goes.

I have come to look forward to the games being called by Ken Harrelson and Steve Stone. Not only for their knowledge about the game and all but the Top Ten Hawkisms. They are on the back of the t-shirt that I wear when I am with you for the games. Number TWO is my favorite. “Duck Snort”

Living in Australia I have to watch most games on the internet but on the rare occasion I will get a televised game which will be on WEDNESDAY Morning Australian time I get the first game in the series. Can you tell I am excited about that…..hehehe

That is about it for now. Have a good day off, pack your bag and see you in Washington for the first game against the Nationals.
