Sunday, Indians Catcher Carlos Santana celebrated his 26th birthday by ripping two home runs, helping the Tribe pick up their first win of the season...Tuesday he had something else to celebrate...

Tuesday Santana signed a five-year, $21 million extension with the Indians, with a club option of $12 million for 2017...The switch-hitting catcher is on verge of being a super-star...

Last year, Santana came back from a major knee injury, and hit 27 HR's...35 doubles...2 triples...With 79 RBI's...A .351 on-base percentage and a .239 batting average...Without a doubt, the Indians want to see his batting average improve...They also want to see some improvement in his defense...


Which, we are starting to see some of that already, as bench coach, and former Indians catching great, Sandy Alomar Jr. has been working a great deal with Santana...He's also not going to be playing as much at 1st base as he did last season, now that he is completely healthy...

This news comes a week after signing slick fielding, Silver Slugger winning shortstop, Asdrubal Cabrera to a two-year, $16.5 million extension, that will keep under contract for three more years...


Without a doubt, these two guys are core pieces to build around...And it looks like the Indians may be going back to John Hart's old play-book, from back in the '90s, when he locked up, their young, talented players early, to try and get the most out of them, and not get raked over the coals in Arbitration and Free-Agency...

The only question is...Who's next to be signed? I say they should lock-up starter, Justin Masterson...

Later, The Beeze.

  They're getting really good at throwing Championship parties in Boston! Nice B-Cups!


Yeah, they have every right to run smack...Boston has been doing some serious ass-kicking over the last ten years...I saw one sign being held by a little kid, that said something like, 'I'm 8 years old and I can die now!' Then it had Pats Championship checked off...Sox Championship checked off...Celtics Championship checked off...And Bruins Championship checked off...I'm just hoping to see 1 championship in the Cleve, before I drop dead!

I would have posted that picture, but I came across this one...


Like I said, they've got this Championship party thing down in Boston!

Oh and here's one for Burrows and his buddies in Vancouver...



Oh, how's your city doing assholes? What too soon? What a STAIN...

So now that Hockey's long-ass season is over, and we're waiting for Football, we have Baseball, and their grossly, way to long season to help kill the time...There has been all kinds of talk about realignment and rule changes and blah, blah, blah...Here's what I would do if I was the all-powerful, ruler of Baseball...

1. DH for everyone...Screw the National League and their purists...DH in both leagues creates more jobs...The Union would love it, and that's good 'cause at some point we're gonna need their support on something...With the rare exception, watching Pitchers hit is like watching a retarded monkey try to hump a Football...

2. Shorten the season...No more cold ass April games...Season will start in May...No more World Series on a cold October/November evening...Season will end 1st week of October at the latest, so passionate, purists can still say "Fall/October Classic"...

3. No Interleague play...The beauty of the "All-Star" Game and World Series is not having seen your opponent...Us vs. Them...These ass-hats want the "All-Star" game to count for home field in the World Series, then this adds to the competitiveness...

4. No fan voting for the "All-Star"...If it's gonna count, then the teams should be picked to make it count, and it should be played to count...And then you wouldn't have a douchebag like Jeter ahead of Asdrubal Cabrera in the voting...Since Cabrera is fucking killing it! Not just with the bat either...10 years ago, Jeter wouldn't have made this play the Cabrera made Sunday...




So that's my plan...What do you got?

Sunday was Father's Day...Often Father's Day seems like an afterthought to many people...Bu not at the Beeze's house...After I got up early with the baby, once everyone else woke up, the Mrs. sent me back to bed...About an hour and a half later, the Little Beeze woke me up and said, "Dad, don't come down stairs yet, I'm not done with your surprise!" I of course obliged, and went back to sleep...And hour later he woke me up, and put his wrapped up surprise in my face...I got up and opened it...My boy who loves his arts and crafts, made me a poster full of pictures of him and his sisters...I was very proud, and I was happy to see the pictures of him when he was much smaller and didn't swear so much!

The wife made dinner later in the day, which is always rare, and exciting...Yes, it was good...It a fun and restful day with the kids...What else can I ask for?

There is another Little Beeze story I have to share...Every Friday is Pizza night here...This week, when the delivery came, it was female driver...He heard the voice, and when I closed the door, he asked, "Was she hot!?!" I replied "No" He was bothered by this, assuming all women are hot, and asked why...I had to say, "she just wasn't." He really had a problem with this, so I told him, "Hot girls don't have to deliver pizza." The Mrs. didn't like this response, but come on now gang...It's true...

So the boy asked, "What is a hot girl?" SO I showed him the end of my blog from a couple weeks ago...You know the one, with Kate Upton doing the "Dougie"...This is a hot girl...




The wife again wasn't happy, when her 6 year old boy kept saying, "She's so hot!"


That's it for now...Have a week...

Later, The Beeze.

  Yeah she's hot...Except for the fact that Derek Jeter has been inside her...Why am I starting off this week's post like this? Fuck Derek Jeter, that's why! Early rumblings have Jeter as a lock to start in the "All-Star Game"...I fucking hate fan voting, because most fans are stupid...If Baseball fans don't vote Indians Shortstop, Asdrubal Cabrera as the starter, then their right to vote should be taken away..."All-Stars" are suppose to rack up the numbers to earn the spot...Well here are the fucking numbers...

Asdrubal Cabrera: 182 AB...32 Runs...55 Hits...9 2B...2 3B...9 HR...32 RBI...6 SB...0 CS... .302 AVG... .363 OBP... .522 SLG... .885 OPS...

Derek Jeter: 183 AB...27 R...49 H...4 2B...1 3B...2 HR...15 RBI...3SB...2CS... .268 AVG... .318 OBP... .333 SLG... .653 OPS...

So again, I say, Fuck Derek Jeter...And Fuck anyone who votes for that bastard...I don't care what kinda tail he gets!

Speaking of Indians Baseball...Monday the Red Sox roll into town to take on the powerhouse Tribe...And I say powerhouse, for the first time in a long time, not sarcastically!

There's a rumor the Sox are bringing a secret weapon with them...Our old friend Mo...Luckily, I told Mo to meet me before the game, and we have a secret weapon of our own...Something that will stop Mo, dead in his tracks...


He sure does love his Bacon!

As for Hockey News, I was on top of that early last week...Did you hear, BETTMAN_SAVED_THE_NHL!?!

Yesterday, I also covered the possible sale/move of the Atlanta Thrashers, and the Preakness Stakes, as I was LOOKING_AT_THE_5_Hole...

I also got off sports, and wrote about the DEATH_OF_RADIO...

But now we have to get into some important shit...Saturday, the Little Beeze had his first Flag Football Clinic...3 hours they worked these kids...5-11 years old, doing drills, running, and yes, a bit of fun...My brother-in-law in Boston was shocked at the 3 hours...I had to explain, this is Ohio...This is Football...The regular season starts in September, these little fuckers need to get ready!

Then Sunday, the Mrs. and I got a sitter, went to lunch...We ate at The Olive Garden, loading up on fatty pasta, because Monday starts hard-core dieting...Then we saw the movie "Priest"...It was nice to finally see a priest portrayed in a positive light, like killing the shit out of vampires, instead of killing the shit out of my ass!

On our way home we went to pick up McDonald's for the kids...A little treat for them behaving...The drive-thru was way backed up...So I said, let's just go in...Well it was backed up there too...Now I have learned not to expect great service from McDonald's, but holy shit! Listen, if you want to see funny shit, go to the McDonald's, in Brooklyn, Ohio, on Ridge Rd....

There was one girl, on break, texting...Only one guy taking orders...One guy slapping the food together...One slob strolling around, doing nothing...One girl at the drive-thru window...One kid doing the circle dance...Just standing in one place, constantly looking at everything, being completely overwhelmed, and getting none of it done...Then there were the 4 people at the Fry station, all in a panic...One of them tells the only guy taking orders, that he "needs to put his orders together himself"...So he stopped taking orders, right before it got to us...Now suddenly, there are two more dummies at the Fry station...

Holy fuck! All this and none of the retarded staff was on duty...They probably would have been better with a couple of those guys there...They just push through and get shit done...Finally after 10 minutes a girl walks to a register, and takes our order...The chaos continued...Who knew that two "Happy Meals" could be so tough...The circle dance kid was still completely fucked...Texting girl was now trying to get her food comped...Still there are 6 people worrying about nothing but fries...Who is in charge was heard in the ever-growing crowd...Finally, we get our food, and only one other order has been taken behind us, with a growing line of angry people...As this dopey bitch hands me our food, I say to her, "Thank you for the most entertaining 20 minutes I've had in a long time." as I laughed in her face...

I plan on writing this event up as a short film, and pitch it to Kevin Smith...We'll submit it to all the film festivals...Win...Then some studio will want me to write a major motion picture, and I'll draw a fucking blank!

That's all for now...

Have a week...

Later, the Beeze.
