Game 122: Time to gain a game on DET and OAK 


Thank you KC for the 1-run win over the Tigers in Game 1 of the DH.  They can figure Verlander out but we can't.  But no matter, we can gain a game or two tonight on the whole bunch of 'em.  Keep the faith... Go Tribe!

Moving down ACab is a huge start, but looking at the splits, I think Aviles actually hits RHP better than ACab.

Mark Reynolds just hit a 2-run HR after following Hafner's footsteps and signing with the Career Rehab Yankees.  The kick in the %^&* woke him up I guess.  Just watch him get hot like he started the season with us.

I am all for it if he does it against the Rays and Orioles, that will help us more than if he was on this team as I doubt he will be hotter than Gomes has been.

Woo Hoo!  Stars are lining up!  KC just took game two, and minutes before BAL fell to the Rockies.  Sorry Rays, Jays gotta come back to kick TB, then it's up to the Tribe for a perfect night.

Unfortunately the Jays expected their lefty reliever to go over an inning and he gives up a walk off triple.ohlord
Yeah, the #4 hole is cursed no matter who is there.

Looking at AJ Griffin, reminds me of Little Enos Burdette from Smokey and the Bandit...

And Masterson is back to struggling, hangs a slider to the HR champ.  Ridiculous, he might be the one that needs days off.banghead

Rays hit a walk-off triple scoring a man from first, so the Rays have 3 straight and keep the WC lead.  Got our work cut out now.  It would be sooooo sweet to take this one.

Griffin can't throw a strike, but a Gomes GIDP could kill a potentially big inning.

Rally killer by a Gomes GIDP and Stubbs K. 
D'oh!
Plenty of time though.

Considering this team's luck since the ASB on balls hit with RISP, I was sincerely hoping Brantley would just take four balls with the bases loaded.  Lo and behold, he rips a line drive to center that is caught.banghead  Not to mention Bourn leading off the inning with a drive to the warning track in RF...shocked Reddick played that deep, Bourn not really a HR threat.tongue

How did I known Asdrubal would make weak contact swinging at the first pitch?

Asdrubal is brutal.  I would seriously rather see Aviles every day at this point.

The real goat in that inning was Stubbs dogging it on his fly ball to centerfield...he should have cruised into third base on that hit, but instead settles for a stroll into second.  It costs us an out as Bourn feels the need to sacrifice him to third.  Awful play by Stubbs helps to short circuit an inning.

And now a very poor throw on a relay by Kipnis and guess what, the little things cost us the lead again.

This team drives me crazy.
