Game 70: Kluber Tries to Give Tribe .500 Trip 


Brantley homers to give Tribe early 1-0 lead, with absolutely no help from the top of the order.  If there are two worse "igniters" in the league than Michael Bourn (.314 OBP) and Asdrubal Cabrera (.324 OBP), I'd sure like to know who they are.

More "middling" defense from our left-fielder, who guns down Ortiz at secondbase, preserving a tie in a rough 27-pitch first inning for Kluber. For a team desperate for some length from its starter today, this was not an auspicious beginning.

Yes, yes he does, but picking on a line drive that happened to find a glove is a curious time to bring this up.

Kluber with 71 stressful pitches through four...doubt he'll get through more than six.  We really needed at least seven badly.

The only thing that can console anyone watching this game (and yesterday's game, and the one before that and the one before that and the one...) is that, looking at other teams' records, you just know they have tons of frustrating players to watch as well. But anyone who still insists we have a "good" offense can't be watching this team.

Terrible 0-2 pitch by Kluber and continued inability of the infield to shine lead to the Red Sox grabbing a 2-1 lead after five...

What a difference a month makes, Kluber has no command and is incredibly hittable all month.  Someone needs to hypnotize Kluber so he believes it is still May.  Bourn and ACab are not ideal but we don't have a lot of options although Santana being willing to do more with the field is promising.  Argh!  How do you not turn two on a one hopper to SS?!  Game over the way this offense can't string together hits against Workman.  Wasn't he supposed to be suspended?!

Workman hasn't struck out more than four in any appearance this year. He has seven so far today. Our offense sucks.

This offense can score 15 in 1 game them 10 in 5 so inconsistent.

The problem is that with Uehara waiting out there, we better get this thing tied soon.

We've finally gotten Workman out of there...and with runners on first and third following a Murphy walk (good AB) and a Santana single, we better at least get this thing knotted up.

Bourn and Cabrera a combined 0-8 today...just awful.

Nice to see Grady hasn't changed his approach: Swing as hard as he can and hope he hits something.

Axford wasn't good, but he was totally ripped off on that slider to Jackie Bradley Jr....we should be out of the inning.

Didn't think there was going to be a chance for Kipnis to get Holt on that bang-bang play...wow, these last two games have been tense.

Our "igniters" are now 0-10 for the day...not one time reaching base. Kinda hard to win when your best hitter always gets up with no one on.

Wow...Franconia over thinking things way too much, Chisenhall is more likely to put up a good AB than Aviles even against a lefty.  I think that is the ballgame right there.ohlord

Wow...Franconia decides Carlos is crap.  Allen third day in a row in a situation where it is likely it will be a wasted appearance.banghead

Chisenhall's AB's today were pretty bad...I really didn't have a problem with this move.
