Throwing meatballs and the Andrew Brown watch

Unread postby Lebowski » Thu Apr 13, 2006 10:10 am

So how much longer does Wedge stay with Graves? He's been living on the edge in every appearance, and it finally caught up with him last night, costing us the game. I have to think that Wedge is losing confidence in him ala Riske in 05. And we all know how that turned out...when Wedgie loses confidence in a guy, he stops going to him.

So how much longer till Brown gets called up to replace The Mullet?

Brown should have been there from day one. His fastball is ideal for that spot in the pen, and he could have worked into a more prominent role in a month or two....

I totally agree that Brown should have been on the team from the start. I doubt many people will be supporting Graves.

Danny Graves is garbage.

Now Danny Vegh's, that's the place!

Shit, Guthrie's gonna be another option for the "replace Graves" role if he keeps pitching this well.

Another 5 shutout innings of 3 hit ball to get the win in the Bisons home opener last night.

Has the Indians patience here paid off? I still need to see 3-4 more starts before I begin to think the proverbial light went on.

The key for Guthrie though is he is finally throwing consistent strikes and has his confidence back.

I remember watching Guthrie in the College World Series when he was with Stanford. It was right after the Indians drafted him. He was as filthy as any college pitcher I've ever seen hurl, with the disclaimer that I watch very little college baseball.

Make or break season for Guthrie, I think that much is obvious. Hes looking like a solid sleeper to potentially be of help to this team in the second half of the season.
