Game 71: Trying not to get Weaved to sleep

Game 71: Trying not to get Weaved to sleep 


Sigh...we will be lucky to get 3 runs today against Weaver who absolutely owns the Indians in spite of the WHIP or whatever, we just never get runs.
Bauer does his best, Pujols with an infield single that Chisenhall can't come up with cleanly, but other than that, 1 FO and 2Ks.

Bourn lines a single into RC (Who is about to have a heart attack).  ACab takes a fastball over the LC wall (Who has a stroke as well).  2-0.
Brantley hits a bouncer up the middle that the 2Bman knocks down and is able to get Brantley.  Kipnis hits a liner to LFer.
Indians showing a great approach against Weaver, going up the middle and the other way.
Santana is up, batting 5th.  Interesting I guess Francona is desperate for some production in the middle in spite of Santana's seemingly happiness in the #8 hole.  He hits a liner to RF, I guess he made good contact, but Gameday has that pitch as a changeup at the knees on the outside corner, in other words, probably should have went to left (especially if they were shifting on him), oh well.

@#$@^%@#$@#^@!
For crying out loud, Bauer gets ahead of Freese 0-1. gives up a single, then ahead of Kendrick 0-2 and gives up ANOTHER single, then freaking gets Ibanez to pop out to keep the runner at third and the GIDP in order, but Chris @#$@%^@#$ Ianetta hits the first pitch to the wall in LC for a freaking 2RBI double!
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PITCHING STAFF?!  bangheadbangheadbangheadbanghead
Who the crap is calling these pitches?  All the hits were on fastballs, on his Ks in the first inning were on off-speed pitches.  Geezus.  My bad, Freese singled on a curveball.
McDonald and Calhoun are retired.

We are going to lose this game.  I sincerely doubt we will get any more runs against Weaver.  The last three hitters were indicative of how we normally play against Weaver, lots of hard hit balls, but all outs.  Weaver plays the percentages of BABIP, that normally only a third will drop, thus he will get three outs before anyone will come around to score. ohlord

In comparison, 4 pitches, 2 outs for the Indians.  Chisenhall gets ahead 2-0 but Weaver freaking throws a 2-0 changeup that Chisenhall is ahead of and bounces weakly to 1B.
Swisher flies out to CF on the first pitch.
Murphy GO to McDonald at SS on the third pitch, another freaking changeup.
Yeah...if people ever day an ace can't be someone who throws around 90...bangheadbangheadbanghead

That's two plays already that a major league thirdbaseman makes.

Re: Game 71: Trying not to get Weaved to sleep 


Another leadoff hit, Trout bounces it by Chisenhall (he is not having a good day there), Hamilton described it as one of those that bounced off the lip of the grass and flattened on Chisenhall as he was moving to his glove side.
Sigh, with that play on top of the knock-down in the first of Pujols smash, it seems like Chisenhall seems to have some issues with his quick-reflexes or something.  Like not being able to close the glove before it squirts out seems indicative of that and not being able to react quickly enough to a mis-bounce as well.
The funny thing is that he had a positive defensive WAR in 2012.  I really wonder what happened. 
Trout steals second.  Bauer able to keep him at 2B at least for one hitter as he gets Pujols to GO to SS.
Now Hamilton up, I wonder if it makes sense for Bauer to IBB Hamilton (lefty) to get the GIDP in order and go after Freese (righty) who is hitting .222.
Maybe not...Bauer has Hamilton's number tonight it seems, gets him to chase another curveball (better not hang one in the third AB) while Trout steals third on the pitch that bounces in the dirt.
Freese up with Trout at third.  Bounces one to SS, ACab makes the play.
This is sad when every time there is a grounder, I hold my breath.noidea

Re: Game 71: Trying not to get Weaved to sleep 


Kottaras GO to 2B into the shift (they even shift for Kottaras?!).  Ahead 2-1, got a fastball and couldn't square it up. ohlord
Bourn gets flare single into LF on a slider that comes inside (Who is like doesn't know what has happenedtongue)
Two sub 70MPH pitches later to ACab, 1-1.  It is amazing he can throw sub 70 and at 90 without any change in his arm action to tip off the hitters.  That is nuts.  Initially staying outside, but then runs a fastball on the inside corner.  ACab then fights one off staying alive.  Angels with a shift for ACab as well.
Hamilton just begging to jinx the Indians today, extolling their home record. tongue
Acab staying alive, fighting off pitches and takes ball 3.  3-2 pitch coming....Bourn goes...ACab pulls it foul on a high curveball, and then takes a fastball that is no where close.  1st and 2nd and 1 out.
Brantley up, takes a fastball up, curve strike, fastball inside, curve low...3-1 pitch...which of course is off-speed that Brantley fouls off.  3-2 pitch...runners go....and they do...and Brantley comes through with a LD single!  1st and 3rd 1 out now...and thank you Hamilton for extolling how badly the Indians have been hitting with RISP.  Holy crap, 46 RBI for Brantley now on a fastball that Weaver didn't quite get inside far enough to Brantley.
Sigh...and of course Kipnis GIDPs....wasting a potential extra run.bangheadbangheadbangheadbanghead
Bad bad AB by Kipnis, freaking pulled an off-speed pitch on the outside corner!  AFter being ahead 1-0!
!@#$@%^#@$#@!%^
bangheadbangheadbanghead
I really think that Aguilar and his knack of "run-production" would be huge for the Indians offense even if he doesn't end up with a high BA.

Re: Game 71: Trying not to get Weaved to sleep 


Bad news, Tigers up 1-0 and it looks like Verlander is rolling.  Not a good sign if it is a long-term thing.
AFter getting a nice 1 pitch out, now Bauer falls behind Indians killer Ibanez 3-0...gets back 3-2.  But still one mis-thrown pitch from putting on a .145 hitter...and that is what he does with a freaking fastball that misses.ohlord
Now a first pitch fly ball single to the LF wall by Ianetta.  FOr crying out loud, he hammered a freaking first pitch double in the 2nd, and you come back with ANOTHER FREAKING FIRST PITCH FASTBALL?!  Ibanez is at 3rd with less than 2 outs and of course McDonald plays fundamental baseball with a SF. bangheadbangheadbanghead
@!#$@#%@#!$ another freaking lead lost in no time WTF is wrong with this pitching staff?!
NOw he grooves a cutter on a 2-0 pitch to Calhoun and now it is 1st and 2nd and 2 outs and Trout up.  Sigh...I feel an implosion coming.bangheadbanghead
Gets ahead 1-2..2-2...1 slider then 3 fastballs...3-2 on a curveball in the dirt that Trout holds up on...pitch comes...fastball popped foul....Callaway visits the mound...and obviously told Bauer to walk Trout as Bauer bounces a freaking curveball.  Geezus.
Bases loaded for Pujols.  0-1 on a slider to the outside corner...next pitch...high inside fastball is swung on and dribbled to 3B that Chisenhall can't boot and Bauer works out of it.  Still, another freaking lost lead.  What is the most runs the Indians have ever scored against Weaver?

Re: Game 71: Trying not to get Weaved to sleep 


Santana works the count 2-2 then takes a changeup into the seats in RF.  Sigh, can't complain about the results, but still, not really that fundamental if it is on the outside corner and offspeed and he is pulling off.  noidea  I will have to look at the replay to see how accurate Gameday is on the pitch location.  But either way, it definitely looks like Santana is hitting a LOT better and that is really good to make up for Chisenhall's inevitable regression.
Speaking of Chisenhall...0-12 now as he Ks looking on a fastball on the inside corner pitch after getting ahead of a changeup and hooking it foul.
Swisher up, 2-2 pitch...and goes down looking as well on a pitch on the inside corner. ohlord
Murphy flies out on a 1-2 pitch to LF.
4-3 Indians...now 4 is the most we have ever gotten against Weaver right?
Sigh...but we know what will happen now. ohlord

I don't know...that is not a good sign, did he somehow get hurt chasing down the the single off the way by Ianetta?
OK Sorry guys I have to work, can't do PBP anymore.

Nope, that play looked relatively benign.  I'm hoping he's just sick or something.  Maybe he tweaked that back again...didn't he have a minor back issue earlier?

Brantley got hit in the head on a play at second earlier in the game.

Oh, didn't see that part of the game.  Thanks, CATS...must have had some lingering effects.

"Smart" people always rave about Bauer...but I'll say this, we dumb people enjoy watching Josh Tomlin work a game a lot more.
