You guys can add stuff---

This might be a high scorer here today folks, as the starting pitchers today (Jackson v. Westbrook) have a combined 1-11 record with an ERA over 7!

I'm giving this one to the tribe--we all know Westbrook is better than that.

Perfect time for Jake to get things rolling and the bats should give him a cushion to work with. I think Jackson's last time out though he got a win and pitched decent. I'd hate for us to pull one of those "Nationals' series where we play down to the competition.

Would be nice to get 3 of 4 before we hit Detroit and that difficult pitching.

I was actually in Tampa for Jackson's last start against the Dodgers, and got to watch it on TV. He gave up a bunch of runs early, but then settled down and pitched well the rest of the game.

Did a 1-8 pitcher with a 7.5+ ERA strike out the side?

Yeah!!!!!!!!!

Atta boy, Benny!

So...can we start Francisco and Gutierrez now? It's not a world beating outfield, but it's not Looch and Trot either.

It's Ben a great game...Grady scored and Fransisco (did i spell that right?)
Go Tribe, I love coming from behind in the last at-bat. seeing them get mobbed is so much fun. Did anyone see Grady's reaction in the on deck circle...it was so cute, at least for me...Go Tribe 8) :cool: 8-)

ESPN made it look like Francisco (severely) pulled an outside pitch ... he did the same thing he first time up with the more predictable result of grounding lamely to third. Is he a dead pull hitter who's likely to get eaten by right-handers with decent breaking stuff? Or am I misreading the GameCast?

It was an outside breaking pitch. I don't know if it was severely outside...I'd have to watch the replay again...but it was definitely on the outer half of the plate.

Oh, I meant he pulled it severely, not that the pitch was near the corner. It looked close to down the line on GameCast.

Oh...it wasn't severely pulled, no. It was well into the bleachers away from the home run porch. Maybe into the second section of bleachers, but it might not have been that far over. Like I said, I'll have to watch it again to be sure (I suppose someone could force me to watch it. You know, if you twisted my arm or something).

Steve - I'm sure there are holes in his swing, but thankfully that pitch wasn't one.

Finally got to see it: it was a pretty generic "punish bad breaking ball" swing. Major league hitters need that in the repertoire. He did good.

Note that his single was to right. I'm not concerned (any more than I am of any other non-Victor on the team).

Did I mention previously that I like B-Fran? :mrgreen:

Nice that Mr. Wedge put "Carlton" in the game to be the hero....
