Well I’m glad the Tribe waited until I rescinded my membership of fanhood from the team to start playing respectable baseball. Good for them. Here are my thoughts:
- Aaron Laffey going eight strong for the kids over at
JacobsProgressive Field. Don’t get your hopes up too high, he had a real dominant streak at the beginning of last year. Encouraging, nonetheless.
- Really looks like Grady Sizemore’s elbow is feelin’ good, huh? One hopping a routine cutoff throw isn’t exactly what you want your centerfielder doing. SHUT HIM DOWN.
- What happened to Francisco Liriano? He was the second coming to Johan Santana at one point. At least that’s what the Wookster said.
- Adam Miller is having another finger surgery and hopes to be ready for spring training next year. I wouldn’t hold your breath on that. On a semi related note, we could’ve traded him for Mark Teixeira two years ago. Just saying.
The Tribe remains 11 1/2 out, but unfortunately everyone ahead of them (except the Twins, obviously) keeps winning. Oh yeah and they drastically improved their teams.
So I wouldn’t be keeping your eyes on the standings hoping for a run.
