Roda’s Weekend Thoughts

By: Kenny Roda

Hats off to the Indians for sweeping their 3rd series of the year, in route to an (11-4) start.  Granted their 3 season sweeps have come again teams with a combined (15-29) record, but they all count the same in the end.

Indians Outfielder Grady Sizemore

That’s the last time I question Manny Acta in a while. The Tribe’s skipper is pushing all the right buttons right now. He places Grady Sizemore right back in the lead off spot, against my wishes, and all Sizemore does is go 2 for 4 with a homer and a double!

After a crapola of a season opening start against the White Sox, Fausto Carmona has settled down and thrown 3 quality starts in a row.  That’s what an ace is supposed to do.

We’re getting closer and closer to the NFL draft and nothing I’ve heard, seen or read, has made me change my mind on my draft order for the Browns in the 1st round.  My top 3 for the Browns are still: 1) A.J. Green – WR – Georgia    2) Patrick Peterson – CB – LSU 3) Von Miller – OLB – Texas A & M.

How about the Spurs, Lakers and Magic all losing game #1’s  at home in the NBA playoffs.  While Miami, Boston, Chicago and Dallas struggled to win at home in Game #1.  Could set up for a great playoff season!

The Lake Erie Monsters played their first ever playoff games at The Q this weekend and came away with a disappointing split against Manitoba. The Monsters took game #1 by a 6-4 score, but lost in overtime in game #2 by a final score of 3-2. The Monsters allowed the Moose to tie up game #2 by scoring with :50 left in the 3rd period and then the Moose dominated the OT session to come away with the win.  Game #3 of this best of 7 game series is Tuesday night in Manitoba.  Face off is 8:30pm.
