game 134 - step up or start thinking about 2015 


the repeat.

bauer vs. shields, and we have mike aviles in RF????? he played 1 game there in 2013, and has played 5 there in his career. either holt or dickerson would be a better choice.

Since the Rockies are out of it, they should give us Drew Stubbs just for today....5 RBI game against Shields last year.

First game of doubleheaders go right for us....Toronto 2-0. over the Yankees and Sale over Sherzer as White Sox win 6-3. How about a couple of sweeps and we get to Shields early....sometimes he's iffy in the first frame.

Speaking of Sale, he went seven with 13 k's and we won't miss him next weekend because they are off both Monday and Thursdaybanghead but thanks for today Chris and maybe the Sox killer Raburn will be back thentongue

He did give up 3 in the first so if we get that ourselves I will be hopeful.  Indians victimized byt the baseball gods costing us a run as JRam hits an at-em ball at Butler for out 2, hit so hard even Game day describes it as "sharply".  To make matters worse, Brantley follows with a double to RF which most likely would have scored JRam.  Now depending on Santana to keep up his hot "streak".
Nope as it seems like Santana's discovery of the opposite field only applies to when facing LHp as he rolls over a changeup and not surprisingly hits a GO to Butler and unfortunately the reports of his bad defense seem to be greatly exaggerated.

And the bad keeps piling on, freaking inside out jam job patented single by Aoki.bangheadbanghead  1-2 pitch too.  I have a bad feeling about this.
Freaking Infante somehow has found the fountain of youth and follows with freaking seeing eye single.  This is BAD!
And Gordon walks after being down 0-2 and Bauer gets squeezed on 3 out of the subsequent 4 balls.  This is BS!!!!!

Whoa Bauer!  Is the next 3 to keep the game scoreless, only one that ran to 2 balls was the last and Call away didn't think it should have gone to 2 balls and got ejected for it, probably arguing a check swing non-call.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers or Trevor Bauer and the Bullet Dodgers. Did not want to see Infante come up there...I fear him more than any other Royal.

Aviles is playing because he has owned Shields in his career...942 OPS

Bauer 63 pitches through three.  That's OK, keep putting up zeros.

bangheadbangheadIndians pitchers have no idea how to pitch with a lead.  Given a 1-0 lead Bauer issues two leadoff walks, including one to a sub-Mendoza hitter!!!!

Geesh

Why would either Holt or Dickerson be a better option in the lineup than Aviles .942 OPS ?

This is why we have Aviles, so that Francona can use Aviles ability to play almost everywhere in order to put the best offensive options in the lineup.

This situation SCREAMS Cody Allen.

I sure hope this isn't one of those save situations that never comes.
