Ballgame. 8 in a row. Too bad Talbot didn't get the shutout but Manny didn't want to fool around.

Tomorrow should be a great game with Fausto against Haren.

I predict 35 groundball outs between them.

Really big fan of Pestano.

And for everyone who was down on Talbot heading into the season, this is why he's going to stick around. He throws strikes, he can give you 180 innings and he's under the Tribe's control for three more years at rock-bottom prices. The perfect fourth or fifth starter. His ERA will probably be in the low to mid 4's and he really adds depth to this rotation.

I'm kinda liking that our 8-2 is a mirror image of the Red Sux' 2-8. Dicey-K got hammered again. Now all the Sux fans are doing the same.

How long can we keep up this Season of Hope? I'm enjoying the ride as long as it lasts...and then keep listening if things go bad. After all, I'm a Tribe-a-Holic!

Briish Pharaoh,

I get the international date day/month thing but I am hugely confused by the avatar photo. It shows an adult male kicking a soccer ball. What the hell is that? Everyone knows that soccer is a game played by young kids and women.

Agreed with everything except "he throws strikes". His control is pretty inconsistent.

But he is a perfect 5th starter. Excellent back-of-the rotation guy.

Yeah, Santana and Choo haven't done anything during the streak offensively and we're still winning. That's a great sign, I think.

Damn, this is a blast. I wish we'd add on a little bit later in the game. They're getting way too comfortable with the way the pitching is going.

Agree with Acta both to send Talbot out for the 9th and pull him after the leadoff 2B. If Abreu does that on the 109th pitch, that's one thing. But you're asking a guy to go 120, best case scenario. With a guy who was hurt last year and in his second start this year, regardless of what Talbot thought, it was the right move.

I'm loving this. Let's win another series tomorrow (today).

See people don't even know what the hell to call it. Some places its "Soccer" (USA, Japan, Australia, NZ, Korea), some places call it "football", some "futbol". God only knows what the Canadian's call it - - not that it really matters what they call it any way.

If the average score is like 1-0, you can't catch the ball or touch it with your hands, you don't know what to call it maybe the sport needs some improvement. :hic:

"I don't know, I never went to Burger King."

Talbot was tremendous last night as the the defense behind him again.

And if Durbin doesn't start getting guys out he's going be the odd man left when Smith comes back.

I had no issue with the Durbin signing (as was discussed somewhere on these pages) but I'll also have no issue with the Durbin release if Pestano or or Herrmann prove to be a younger version of Durbin.

And Pestano has been impressive thus far. Swing and miss stuff early on.

Good for him, good for us.

The best part of Talbot's performance is that the bullpen is now fully rested up. Both Perezes and Sipp had gone two straight days of working innings and now they are all ready to go again. Everyone in that pen could pitch today if needed, including Vinny P.

Durbin has sucked so far. Need to bring him in not so close games and maybe he'll build some confidence. But I'm already sick of having to hold my breath every time Acta brings him in.

I hate to give up on a guy so early on but with the way other men in the pen are pitching it's really easy to.

Jhonny Peralta is hitting .344 (and has drawn a walk) but has an OBP of .343

explain this...

The only thing I can think of is that he has tried to stretch singles into doubles and been thrown out.

Peralta has 2 sac flies but only 1 walk. Sac flies don't count as an AB, but do count as a plate appearance.

It's not early in my book when he had a go-round with the Tribe once before, in 2004. He wasn't so good for us back then either - sported a 6.66 ERA. Spawn of the devil, he was...

If all things statistical were equal between Durbin and one of the younger pups I'd stay with the "kid" just because he has more years left.
