The Indians are thrilled with Stephen Strasburg too

Jun 9, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

The Indians haven’t been drawing for anything this season, but Christmas comes early to Cleveland this year. Or should I say Strasmas?  Strasburg is scheduled to start against the Indians this Sunday and the Indians have sold over 1000 tickets to the game since midnight. I can only assume more will go as word spreads in the next couple of days. It could very well be the Tribe’s first sellout since Opening day.

And I get to be there!  I’ll be attending the game, courtesy of a seat in the Tribe Social Deck (i.e. the “press box” where bloggers can drink beer and cheer). Out of courtesy to my home-state team I’ve tended to at least mildly cheer for the Tribe every time I’ve gone to Jacobs/Progressive Field, but I’m not sure I’ll be doing that on Sunday.  Not sure most Indians fans will be able to either. History > whatever it is the Indians are doing this season.

I’m having a hard time imagining that Strasburg can do anything to top last night’s performance, but with the Indians’ lineup, all things are possible.

    Couldnt agree more Craig. My first Tribe game of the year, and it certainly isn’t to see the home squad!

    Not a bad way to make up for missing last night’s game live! I agree that a repeat of last night would be remarkable, but like you said with Cleveland the probabilty quotient goes way up.

    To give a little extra incentive for the fans, the Tribe needs to announce that they’ll call up Santana to debut that day.
