Pretty Girl 04.24.12 - Jessica Logue

Do you remember that Louisville cheerleader that Terrence Jones ran over in the Final Four?  Well, this is her and, supposedly, her ass.  TJ promised to apologize to her with some flowers, which he did today.  How sweet...

Not a big UFC guy, but she's helping me get there.  How hot is the pic where she has her fingers to her temple?

Some crazy person once told me that she was the hottest chick on The Big Bang Theory.  While that is the raving of a madman, she certainly is a cutie.

Clip Joint (Better Than) 500

Corey Kluber
Yup, yup.  Clippers win, Clippers win.  Still we all have to come to terms with the fact that there is simply not the same level of talent at Columbus this season as there was when the club won back-to-back AAA National Championships in 2010 and 2011.  The Clips (8-5) are still playing good ball, but the offensive leader tonight was Matt Pagnozzi (.346) who delivered 2 hits and 2 RBI, including his first home run of the young season.  Russ Canzler (.191) had two hits as well and Cord Phelps (.316) singled in a run in the 9th to extend his hitting streak to 11 games, but that was about it.  Both Trevor Crowe (.405) and Lonnie Chisenhall (.345) took an 0-for-5.

Corey Kluber (3-0, 2.81) started and pitched very well for the third straight start.  Although Kluber (6 IP, 6 H, ER, BB, 7 K) is not in contention to take the upcoming spot start, he has certainly been the most consistent member of the Clippers rotation thus far.  Opponent are batting just .220 against Corey in 2012 as the righty has fanned 25 in 16 innings.  Once again, the bullpen was dominant.  CC Lee (2.57) and Chris Ray (2.45, 3 SV) combined for three shutout innings to preserve the lead and the victory.

By the way, with Asdrubal Cabrera on bereavement leave, the Indians have chosen to add Nick Hagadone in his absence.  The clock is ticking for Tony Sipp and Rafael Perez.

Tomorrow's game 2 against Indianapolis is a 1:05p tilt with Scottie Barnes (0-1, 4.09) on the mound.

Other Minor Points of Interest...

Jared Goedert (.385) just continues to hit.  He added a single and a double this evening and is primed to move back to AAA just as soon as a spot opens up.  Chun Chen (.278) has awoken as well.  With two more hits tonight, he is hitting .437 over his last four games.  Thomas Neal (.200), however, has yet to find his stroke.  A 1-for-2 game against Bowie finally raised his average to Mendoza, but he was also caught stealing and picked off.  Nick Weglarz (.133) has sat out back-to-back games.  Couple that with his poor performance (.321 OPS) and one must wonder if Wegz is, yet again, injured.

One wonders how patient the organization can be with Tony Wolters (.111) before he is demoted.  Part of the concern is that Francisco Lindor is currently manning shortstop for Lake County, but you cannot leave Wolters, who took another o-fer tonight, in as confidence ebbs.  Jesus Aguilar (.361) is just fine, however.  He doubled and walked today.  Jake Lowey (.317) went 0-for-4 with a pair of K's.

Lake County
Things have not gone well of late in Eastlake.  The kids have dropped eight straight by a combined score of 59-31 and the last two games have produced a total of just 4 runs.  Tonight, Luigi Rodirguez (.333) saw his hit steak come to an end and Alex Lavisky (.256) saw his hitless streak extend to 8 AB's.  The aforementioned Lindor (.309) did single and walk.  Starter Elvis Araujo (0-3, 3.00) has been a hard luck loser all season including this evenings contest.  Araujo took his team through six (6 H, 2 BB, K) and left behind 3-2 only because of 2 unearned runs.  Oh yeah, LeVon Washington (.440) had an MRI on his hip yesterday, the same area that gave the former first rounder trouble last season.  Washington has not played since April 11th.


Fate certainly handed Bryce Harper (.245) the situation to ignite what has, so far, been quite a stagnant season.  After Syracuse fell behind 1-0 in the top of the 9th, Harper came to the dish with runners on second and third and two out in the bottom of the frame.  With the home fans on their feet, Bryce took a 1-2 pitch and lined it... directly into the second baseman's glove.  He is still looking for his first AAA home run.

Pretty Girl Double Update! - Debra Messing & Maria Menounos

Huh huh, they're nekkid.  Thank you, Allure.

Clip Joint Slip N' Slide

Trevor Crowe
Yeesh, so now there are no starters fighting for that spot start.  Kevin Slowey (1-2, 4.50) was unable to maintain the momentum that he had built in his first two outings as he was beat for 6 earned on 10 hits over 5 and 1/3 in Louisville tonight.  Add in 3 walks and Slowey put 13 guys on base.  Not good.  Nor was Jeremy Accardo (1.59), who delivered his first dog outing of the young season.  Accardo (0.2 IP, 2 H, ER, BB, K) entered with the bases loaded in the 6th and not only allowed all three of those runners to score, but let in one of his own and surrendered the lead.  Hector Ambriz (1.35) pitched two perfect innings to finish the game.

The offense was highlighted by the return of Matt LaPorta (.316), who produced a single and a walk.  Trevor Crowe (.469) and Lonnie Chisenhall (.380) both continued their hot hitting.  Crowe fell a homer short of the cycle and has 8 hits in his last 11 at-bats.  The Chiz Kid went 9-for-18 over the four game set with the Bats, complete with four doubles and 3 RBI.  Despite going just 1-for-5, Cord Phelps (.327) extended his hitting streak to 10 games.  He has hit in 11 of 12 games this season.

After a 6-1 start, the Clips have won just 1 of their last 5.  They move on to Indianapolis tomorrow at 7:05p.  Expect Corey Kluber (2-0, 3.60) to be on the bump.

Other Minor Points of Interest...

Not much from the offense.  Jared Goedert (.371) added two more hits and Chun Chen (.250) finally broke through, going 3-for-4 with a double.  Each scored a run.

Much more interesting was the work by the pitching staff.  Toru Murata (3.38) took the spot start and pitched well enough over 3 innings (4 H, 2 ER).  Then, Bryce Stowell (1-0) entered and fanned 7 over 3 innings.  He did allow his first two hits of the season and opponents can now claim to be hitting a robust .125.  Stowell has whiffed 11 in 5 frames.  After that came Cody Allen who K'ed a pair and allowed a hit in his own two clean innings.  Across two levels, Allen has stymied the other team to the tune of an .077 clip and 12 punch outs in 8 innings.  Neither man has been scored on in 2012.

Stop the presses!  Tony Wolters (.122) got a hit.  Jesus Aguilar (.353) did as well, but that's not as exciting.  Jake Lowery (.351) did not, but he did draw a walk.  On the hill, Danny Salazar (0-2, 7.04) took the loss.  Salazar (4 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 2 K) is the guy on the 40-man of whom you've never heard.

Lake County
It was not a great offensive night for the Captains, but Luigi Rodriguez (.357) did extend his hit streak to 8 games.  Felix Sterling started, but did not figure in the decision.  Sterling pitched well over six innings (2 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 4 K) and has certainly delivered thus far.  The 19 year old has held the opposition to a .148 average (that's 8 total hits allowed in 3 starts) and has punched out 14 in 16 innings.  Also, Francisco Lindor (.308) singled and swiped his 4th bag.


P.s. Did you know that there's a Clay Rapada AND a Clay Zavada?  Both are left handed relievers.
