Enrico Pallazzo: 1926-2010

You knew him better as Leslie Nielsen, but to baseball fans he’ll always be Enrico.  He died today at the age of 84.

We are both obligated and honored to send you to this fine video of the Mariners taking on the Angels during Her Majesty the Queen’s visit to the United States.

If that’s too long for you, check this one out, as it’s quite possibly the most perfect comedic exchange since the Marx Brothers.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Pallazzo.

Andrew Miller leaves game with a bum hamstring

Indians reliever Andrew Miller left last night’s game against the Cubs with left hamstring tightness.

Miller threw just two pitches before clutching his leg and leaving the field. He’s day-to-day for now — and manager Terry Francona noted that he had a similar injury a few years back and only missed a few days — but hamstring injuries can be anywhere from annoying to serious, so nothing definitive will be said by the club until he undergoes an MRI. Given how critical he is to the Indians, who are likely postseason bound, figure that the team will err on the side of caution with a DL sting regardless.

Miller has yet to allow a run in ten innings of work.
