I guess Fukudome's a streaky hitter.

24 games with the Tribe: -

10 multi-hit games - 24-for-41 (.585)

The other 14 games - 4-for-57 (.070)

Man, ACab is really scuffling. If he wasn't so good the rest of the season I'd be pissed.

Is anyone else seeing parallels to the epic comeback against these very same Mariners ten years ago?

Yeah, me neither.

Man. Y'all sure do love playing an entire series out over a couple of minutes. Win the one you're playing right now.

And at least 11 other teams have beaten Felix this season. He's the Masterson of the M's. ;-) ;) :wink:


That was just a response to some posts from yesterday from people who were looking ahead.

At least the Tigers took a lead.

Look on the bright side... Perez is not available to pitch Game 2 today

And I'd hazard a guess he won't be pitching tomorrow.

Okay, so now we have to score 6 runs in the last two innings to tie it instead of just 5.

We've got this.

It's okay. He still has to go home, look in the mirror, and realize he's still Eric Wedge.

Some of the dumbest and/or most selfish at bats you'll ever see in that situation.

Today was more like the beach scene where the guy gets shot in the helmet, takes off the helmet to look at the bullet hole and laugh with relief, then proceeds to take one in the head seconds later.

No mention of how Ichiro should be hit in the head (yes, I advocate it here) for the stolen base up 11-4? Come on, guys.

Had no real issue it after raising my eyebrows but remembering how Gzod awful the Seattle bullpen is and what inning it was.

Thought his own pitchers should have hit him for feeling an urgency to tack on more.
