Hope that mlb network starts to pick up more Indians games. It's going to be nice not having to watch it on the ipad for once. Would be nice to have the home call, but I'll take what I can get.




ETA -- It's regional, and they are giving me Giants at Brewers. I'm going to to burn my house to the god damned ground. :pb:

Indeed he sure is. One night, he's 4-4 with 2 XBH's and the next night he's 0-4 with 4 K's...all on swinging at down and away pitches. Here's a guy that we're just dying to move to the #5 hole, but he just won't allow it.

Ever play either one of the new PS3 baseball games? LaPorta is STOUT on MLB 2k11.

I don't have my MLB.TV sub anymore but still have MLB TV and am having the same issue and I am closer to Cleveland than Milwaukee yet I am still getting the Milwaukee game, the rules for MLB make no sense... I did find an internet stream of a radio station that somehow still has the Indians games streaming even though its not really allowed but won't give that out here unless moderators say its ok.

Had to leave during the 7th inning, but it was really nice to come home and see we added to the lead AND held it. Good job by the guys today to stop the losing streak. Carlos was pretty good.(I really love this kids stuff, and he seems to be getting much more confidence).

I beat up Carrasco a lot and really am not a fan, but props on a gutty performance today. His command was somewhat erratic with his fastball again on the outer half to LHBs, but he battled with no run support (not til he left the game anyway). That game was hanging in the balance a lot and kid was tough on the bump.

Big fan of his effort yesterday. I'd like to see more of it.

Carrasco's been fine all year. In his 6 road starts he has given up 3 runs or fewer in every one. The team is 4-2 in those road starts. His ERA is 3.48 on the road. I'm tempted to say he's been our best starting pitcher on the road this year. Haven't looked too closely though. The common thought I see on these boards is how inconsistent he's been, the facts are he has been very consistent all year. Take away his first start, and he has given up 4 runs or less in every single one of them. He consistently gives the team a chance to win games every single one of his starts.

His command was somewhat erratic with his fastball again on the outer half to LHBs, but he battled with no run support (not til he left the game anyway). That game was hanging in the balance a lot and kid was tough on the bump.

Big fan of his effort yesterday. I'd like to see more of it.



I think Carrasco has shown that he is going to be good. Not great, not Terrible but good. He has a 95 mph fastball but it isnt explosive but he gets good downward movement on his pitches. So maybe if he can consistently start to locate that fastball and learn to pitch maybe he will put it together, but if we go on track records he will prob be an effective 6 inning pitcher that can keep his team in games.

A good #3 which normally would be fine but not since that is what you traded cliff Lee for. Its up to Jason Knapp and his bum shoulder in that trade. Its obvious they went for quantity over quality in that trade
