Nothing like losing on a desperation throw home in a game where your second best offensive player was run into by your worst defensive player.  That pretty much sums it up.  Here are my thoughts:

  • Another solid outing for Fausto Carmona (6 2/3, 5 H, 2 ER, 7 K), another game where the Tribe can’t give him some support.  On the bright side, it appears as though Carmona is approaching his 2007 form. 
  • Trevor Crowe had an RBI single, and he continues to swing the bat well.  However, Trev, you gotta hold onto that ball in centerfield.  Nobody expects you to play CF like Grady, but you can’t drop that.
  • I really wish the Indians had Carl Crawford.  I’m not mad that the Rays do.  I will hate it when the Yankees sign him.
  • Is that Jhonny Peralta I see whose batting average has SKYROCKETED to .246!  Yayuhhhhh!  Except his “resurgence” on offense will be nullified due to his collision with Asdrubal Cabrera, resulted in that amount of drop off on the left side of the infield.  I hate Jhonny Peralta.

Really not much more to say at this point.  Grady Sizemore is now available off the bench.  Awesome.  Fu**ing awesome.  It’s always nice to have a solid .220 hitter at your disposal.

One Response to “Rays 4, Indians 3”

  1. maybe redman or marson can break their forearm (not really rooting for them to get hurt, errrr, well kinda) so santana and his .320 BA, 9 bombs, and 37 RBI in 38 games can get called up.

    heres a nice tidbit about our current catchers…

    Since 2000, Redman has 10 hrs in 635 games and his career high for RBI in a season is 38.

    Marson has a much smaller sample size but in 49 career games he has 1 HR and 7 RBI.

    So Santana has basically put up better #s in a month and a half of AAA ball then these two have in their CAREERS COMBINED, redmans stretching over an entire decade.

    And all Clevelands fron office has to say is… “he is working on his catching skills and handling pitchers” …. Riggggggghhhhhhht.
