As Santana's bat has come around, his defense has gone in the shitter. Gotta love that.

You can't expect him to think about more than one thing per game. I can't imagine our old timers (Lowe, Damon, and Kotchman) are long for this team. I have to think they would clear them out to bring some young guys up soon. Of the three, I guess Kotchman could stick around since he has been good defensively.

Right now, he's the one in possession of the video of Shaprio and Antonetti double-teaming farm animals. They rotate the video amongst themselves so the front office isn't sure of the current owner. Keeps them all safe. Shelly Duncan is next up, I hear. He actually enjoys watching it, from what I've been told.

In the space of one week, I've gone from "can't miss a game" to checking the score during commercial breaks for the Olympics.

By the way, was I the only one who was finding the Indoor volleyball match between the USA and China to be incredibly frustrating to watch?

I"m screaming "Close it out already" at the TV like it's something I watch on a regular basis.

Sexually frustrating, you mean, right? 'Cause that's how I feel watching that.

Not what you meant? Oooooh. Never mind. I didn't mean that, either.

Awkward.

This is where I support your argument by making a scathing and snarky comment about the joke of a front office and the absolute laughing stock of an ownership team.

Then I realized I just don't have the energy anymore. :hic:

Hey kids, the Indians are giving away a bobblehead. Bug your parents to pay big bucks to watch shit baseball so you can have a free gift to commemorate another player who didn't win a damn thing.

The last two days I've kinda listened up until 10PM. Then I mute the computer, let the Gameday screen play behind another window, and watch the news while skimming e-mails. Check in on commercials. If they sound like they're doing well I listen for an out or two, decide it was just a mirage, then go back to mute.... This season started out looking almost promising - got suckered in again!

I'm still watching.... this last few nights though, I've fallen asleep around the 7th inning with the game on in the background.

It's time they actually blew this thing up and at least made it interesting by playing some of the younger guys.

Cut bait with Damon, Hannahan, Kotchman, Lillibridge and Duncan and play LaPorta, Goedert, Anderson and Fedroff.

None of those guys probably amount to anything, but I'll have more interest in watching them than the turds we're throwing out there.

^^^^^^^^^^^
THIS

For the life of me I have never understood why the indians continue to play guys like Duncan. It's like they don't know he's complete crap or something.

Someone needs to pony up or sell the team now! :thumb up:
