Overview

You do for CLE baseball what Bukowski did for the post office - Chris Gemerchak

The triumphant second year of The B-List on TheClevelandFan.com featured more of what readers have come to expect from the daily column chronicling the adventures (and misadventures) of the Cleveland Indians' run to the ALCS. In this book, you'll find more of the fluid wit, unorthodox statistics, and language butchery that made The B-List one of the favorite must-read columns of Steve Buffum's relatives everywhere.

Within these pages, you'll discover such things as:

The ballad of Oldberto Hernandez
A proposal to change all Cleveland relievers' names to "Raffy"
The claim that Ryan Garko's triple was the result of a meteorite strike and a polar bear attack
Over 50 outrageous lies about Mark Shapiro
A player who is, inconceivably, worse than Ramon Vazquez
Fausto!T
C.C. Sabathia and the Inning of CrapT
On bunt defense: And Jensen Lewis is thinking ... well, it's hard to say what Jensen Lewis is thinking ... how yellow Spongebob is, or possibly that growing Beverly Hills 90210 sideburns make him look older so he can avoid getting carded at the 7-11 ... but he throws the ball to second to not get Ramon Vazquez out.

On defense in general: Borowski induced a routine ground ball to first baseman Ryan Garko, who slapped it with his frying pan before kicking it with his hockey skates. (In his defense, he was wearing oven mitts at the time.)
