Open Thread: Angels vs. Indians at Miller Park, Thursday 4/12, 12:05 CT

No, that's not a misprinted title, and today being April 12, no, it's not April Fool's Day, and no, you haven't stumbled upon our SBNation Indians site Let's Go Tribe, nor the Angels site Halos Heaven.

But with the Cubs off today, and since I'm off work on Thursdays, I figured, why not? So later this morning, I'm heading up to Milwaukee to see this game, an addition to my collection of neutral-site games; I saw the Marlins and Expos play at the Cell on September 13, 2004 (here's what I wrote about it at the time on my old site).

And so, again, with no Cubs game to follow today, I thought I'd give all of you a game thread; we may be visited by Angels and Indians fans from the above-mentioned SB Nation sites, because I've let those bloggers know I'm going -- so welcome them to BCB and have fun with this.

vs. Cle -- vs. LAA
I'm not all that familiar with either of these teams, and between them they have only three ex-Cubs on their 25-man rosters (our old pal Joe Borowski on the Indians, and Gary Matthews Jr. and Jose Molina among the Angels). This is a pitching matchup of highly-regarded young pitchers; Jeremy Sowers, who just turned 24, gave up only one hit in his first start to date, but two runs, because he issued five walks. Sound familiar, Cubs fans? Sowers wound up with a no-decision in a game the Tribe lost 4-3.

Dustin Moseley defeated the A's in his only start so far in 2007. He's 25, and made only three major league appearances in 2006. Although I saw the Angels play the Cubs three times in Arizona, Moseley wasn't among the pitchers I saw there, so that's just about all I can tell you about him.

For those of you with Mediacenter access, audio or video, there are the usual choices, and for those with conventional TV or radio, it's available on the following outlets: WTAM 1100 (Cleveland), KSPN 710 (LA), KLAA 830 (LA broadcast in Spanish), XM 180, FSN West, and STO in Ohio.

And, there's always Gameday.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
