Game 66: Can Bauer save the day?

Game 66: Can Bauer save the day? 


Hell no as nothing is saving this shining example of an inefficient offense and horrible defense.  Down 2-0 after 3 after a leadoff double to Moustakas, Royals deke the Indians by faking sending Moustakas home on a single to center alloewing Escobar to take second on his single.  Moustakas scores on a sacrifice fly.  Single sends Escobar to third, Bauer gets a pop up 10 feet on the OF grass caught by Aviles who fights the sun and catches it sitting on his butt.  Escobar actually tags and freaking Aviles panicks, instead of standing up and making a strong throw home, he flips it to Bauer from his butt and Bauer, standing 20 feet from Gomes rifles it over his head.bangheaddevil
This team has to be officially the worst defensive team in history right?!

I am seeing what WhoAzcue was meaning when he said Bourn's defense is bad he gave his cut off man no chance and let the runner from first move up

Why do the Indians have so much trouble with KC when other teams don't seem to

Michael Bourn is a shell of a player he once was. So is Swisher. We are swimming heavily against the tide with those guys taking up so much of our payroll. Sad.

Going to watch Ryan Merritt pitch for the Mudcats tonight. I'm hoping it will be more fun than this game. Of course, nothing is going to wipe the smile off my face after watching the Heat get punked in their own building.

I'm curious: anyone here who wouldn't rather have Yordano Ventura as opposed to Bauer? They are both exactly the same age. I'd trade Bauer for Ventura and throw something in to boot.

Except for Francona is there anyone who would rather have Giambi DHing right now instead of Kendry's Morrales

Not at the price.

Man, KC's defense is so far superior to ours it's jaw-dropping.

Top of Eight

Wade Davis on the mound...no runs given up in the last eighteen innings.

Bourn down 0-2...watches three pitches in the dirt...singles up the middle.

Chiz also down 0-2, goes full....walks.

Brantley singles to center to load em up.

Kip down 0-2, takes strike three on the outside black.

Santana swings thru the first offering...takes a ball...check swing strike is iffy...whiffs.

Murphy down 0-2, takes low and away...fouls in the dirt...slaps a foul...grounds to second.

Rats...

OMFG how pathetic and unclutch can this offense get?!  Bases loaded and nobody out, down three runs, what happens TWO FREAKING CONSECUTIVE STRIKE OUTS!  bangheadbangheadbangheadbangheadbangheadbanghead
And I fear that Murphy has not made his necessary sacrifices to the BABIP Gods to make up for the total lack of competence on the part of Kipnis and Santana.
Kipnis not fighting with two strikes is unacceptable, and of course Santana was probably swinging from the heels again and not willing to cut HIS RIDICULOUS SWING DOWN WITH TWO STRIKES ON HIM WHEN CONTACT IS NECESSARY!!!!!
bangheadbangheadbanghead
And these guys are your middle of the order hitters.ohlord
I totally want Aguilar up, at least he seems to know the value of productive outs.

Even if that was outside or borderline, in that situation, KIpnis has to reach out and spoil the pitch.ohlord

Indians better tighten up their play stat or all that goodwill built up the last homestand is going to be gone in no time.  Red Sox much harder to play at home with their cozy dimensions and big fly ball hitters, I am thinking this is the beginning of the end of a horrible road trip.bangheadbangheadbanghead
