When my kids were young, I routinely reminded them that the difference between good and great was not that much – probably a lot less than they thought.
One extra effort, one last push, one additional challenge.
If you can forge ahead – just one more step – after everyone else gives up, you can achieve greatness. What was it Rudyard Kipling said: If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster, And treat those two impostors just the same…
Anyway, I understand that the Tribe did just that the other day, calling an extra “spring training” practice before the series with Detroit. And it seems like that worked out okay.
Cause her we are after a clean sweep of the top team in the central division… in dead last place, but just another series win away from second place and two series away from first place. Funny how that works out, isn’t it? In the cellar one day and on top of the world the next.
Damn, I love baseball. And I love the Tribe.
22 down, 72 to go… we are so close.
