After all that, the run against Perez is unearned.

Ridiculous!

The Cagney & Lacey discussion may have summed that Perez appearance perfectly. Just ugly and unwatchable and really, really bad.

Slip sliding Away would be the theme song.

LaPorta chirping at some fans after that groundout.

He has a couple of walk offs but an immense number of bad, bad at bats. (See 8/22/11 bottom of 9th inning.)

Anyone know which hunting platform or duck blind Wickie might me in? Or what's JoBo doing these days?? I'm guessing one of them could help Perez regain his style.

On the plus side if we lose does this mean we slip behind Chicago and therefore are one team closer to being able to put a bid in for Thome? Gotta look for the silver lining somewhere...

Oh! And Jack Handyhands gets on base! Come on, score!!!

Pretty much every single manager in the league does the exact same thing when they're the home club. If the dude does his job it's a non issue.

I don't know FtW. Sometimes I think managers believe there's safety in going with what everyone else does and don't acknowledge their individual players may perform differently.

This one hurts guys. Getting swept by Detroit was bad enough, but losing a game that you should have won against a team that is God awful is much worse. We need to win 11 games on this homestand. We got off on the wrong foot and need to rebound by winning the next three against Seattle.

They need to win one game first.

I know it's cliche' but they really do just need to look at it that way. This effing lineup makes anything else seem ridiculous in terms of looking ahead.

It hurts because you play 11 games at home against proverbial turds in the punchbowl Mariners, Royals and A's. To lose in that fashion while scoring 0 earned runs is brutal.

But look at the lineup that was out there. Donald batting second. Fukudome 5th. Matt DHing 6th. Hanahan 7th. Marson 8th. Zeke 9th. I have seen AAA lineups better than this.

Yeah but look at who failed the most tonight: Brantley. We has been digressing over the last couple of weeks and tonight was crushing. Even with that horrible lineup we still had a chance to win. Brantley choked on a fatty when the presented itself.

He did hit into that big 1-2-3 double play. I really think he must be hurt. He really winced (at least once that I noticed) on a swing and miss. I would give him the benefit of the doubt and say that he is trying to stay in this injury riddled lineup.

I've noticed him wincing too. If he is playing hurt, props to him. If not, he needs to get his head out of his ass.

We need to win 11 games on this homestand. We got off on the wrong foot and need to rebound by winning the next three against Seattle.

It hurts because you play 11 games at home against proverbial turds in the punchbowl Mariners, Royals and A's. To lose in that fashion while scoring 0 earned runs is brutal.


But look at the lineup that was out there. Donald batting second. Fukudome 5th. Matt DHing 6th. Hanahan 7th. Marson 8th. Zeke 9th. I have seen AAA lineups better than this.

Yeah but look at who failed the most tonight: Brantley. We has been digressing over the last couple of weeks and tonight was crushing. Even with that horrible lineup we still had a chance to win. Brantley choked on a fatty when the presented itself.


This. Brantley is a brutal leadoff hitter. That's a problem with this team. Zero capable leadoff hitters. But an OBP under .320 doesn't cut it batting first. I thought Fukudome was a great candidate to leadoff as he was a .370 OBP guy with the Cubs, but as soon as he put on a Tribe uniform his walks ended and he can't get on base either. I guess Choo would be our best candidate now. HE can run a little too. Brantley needs to hit 6 or 7 I think. He's got some pop in his bat. Well, at least beofore injury he did.

My stating of stats is not looked highly upon and someone will tell me ignore Brantley's .320 OBP as a leadoff hitter. IT's fine.

I blame Choo. His wife could have had that baby without him. Be a man and get in that lineup!

Or his ABCs. In the correct order.

Glad I missed Perez's 9th inning abortion getting ice cream at Honey Hut. I did get to hear our bottom of the 9th inning abortion, though. Good at bat for LaPorta. I was afraid he'd start becoming something of a decent baseball player. Can't let that happen.

But hey, Chris Perez taking it all in stride on Twitter!

The Honey Hut sounds like a titty bar.

Did they have abortion flavored ice cream? They could call it the LaPorta.
