Game 127: CC will BB or KK?

Game 127: CC will BB or KK? 


So far more KKs than BBs and no Hs, which is resulting in a lot of Ps.
JRam had a single with one out, but then got doubled off on a liner to CF, not sure if it was because he was going on the pitch.
How Santana, on a 2-0 92 MPH fastball only is able to ground out softly to 1B is beyond me.flushed

CC works around what-else, an infield single.  Chisenhall with the hardest hit ball so far of the night, a fly out to the track in LF, hope that means he is getting less pull-happy.

And Indians go 1-2-3, doing what they do best, making a 5+ ERA guy look like a Cy Young candidate, especially when they throw in the low 90s.

CC has no feel for his changeup today, relying on the fastball, and some sliders mixed in.  He is really gassing it, high 90s every fastball.

We always make the pitchers that have awful ERAs look good, it is where they see their ERAs drop.  And in other news, Tigers already up 1-0 versus the Twins.
And we are down 1-0 as CC leaves a freaking fastball too far over the plate. bangheadbangheadbangheadbanghead
Sigh...this really pisses me off.  This offense has been so pathetic against mediocre pitchers that our pitchers all of a sudden feel like they need to be perfect, resulting in mistakes like that being magnified.  Oh and Peacock is only at freaking 50 pitches in 4 IP.  This is utterly embarrassing.

OMFG, this team is filled with ML players right?  And 92 mPH is not that fast for a fastball right?  HOW CAN A TEAM FULL OF ML BALLPLAYERS BE UNABLE TO SQUARE UP 92 MPH FASTBALLS?!  First Santana only meekly grounds out to first on a freaking 2-0 fastball, then he Ks on a FOUL TIP on a 92 MPH fastball.  And Kipnis, HE FREAKING POPS UP TWO FASTBALLS IN TWO ABS!!!!
THank GOD we have Walters, as he ties it up on a knuckle curve (so our team still can't hit 92 MPH fastballs as JRam's single was on a freaking knuckle curve too!)bangheadbangheadbanghead

Peacock is really working lefties up and in with that fastball. The ball is just getting on them. He's pitching a good ball game tonight.

Walters makes me excited each time he comes up. He's hitting every mistake out of the park right now. Fun to watch.

All I had to do is compliment Peacock. Now he leaves with an injury.

CC now is getting squeezed, works around the walk, completes 6 IP on 90 pitches.
Francona realizes that Holt is on the bench?  A good defensive OFer and HITS RH?!  WHY THE HELL DID HE NOT PH FOR DICKERSON FOR HOLT?!
OR FREAKING BOURN?!

GEEZUS!bangheadbangheadbanghead

SEriously THIS IS FUNDAMENTAL BASEBALL!!!

In the realm of bad news, the Royals show what ML teams are supposed to do to pitchers who barely can break 90.  Erased a 1-0 deficit and it is now 4-1 within 2+ at bats.  Butler and Willingham with homers. bangheadbanghead

We have scored 1 run against three pitchers whose lowest ERA is over 5.  Including facing a pitcher with a 9+ ERA.bangheadbanghead

Re: Game 127: CC will BB or KK? 


Can anyone comment on whether or not the knuckle curve was a strike or not to Walters?  Nasty pitch to throw 3-2, but I guess there is a good reason not to think walking him is the lesser of two evils than grooving a fastball when Walters is looking for it.

@#$@^#@$ so not only has the Indians' lack of fundamentals affected the Indians games, it is affecting teams that can help the Indians.  Freaking down 4-1, Rangers get a leadoff double by Beltre, but freaking fail to move him to third on the first out, and thus do not score.bangheadbangheadbanghead

Seattle having some major issues offensively, .246 hitting Ackley in LF, .225 hitting DH in Morales, and they need to use Endy Chavez in RF.  TOo bad Murphy got hurt right when he was hitting better, he might have looked mighty attractive to the Mariners, especially since he would get to play the Rangers 19 times a year!

I won't comment on the brilliant base running but i will point out Detroit trails 6-1 and Seattle is down 3-0 with Felix on the hill.

OMFG Aviles gets picked off 2nd and Holt alertly moves up to second, but then he gets caught stealing third!
WTF!  Only the Indians know how to turn a 1st and 2nd and no one out situation to a 2 out and none on before the third batter's AB is done. bangheadbangheadbangheadbanghead

Was Perez trying to bunt on Aviles pick off?  OR did the SS do the whole stand next to the runner and obstruct the runner play?
