I've given Brantley a ton of shit this year, but that was a phenomenal at bat.

And he took 2nd by running hard.

Ubaldo's had good life on that change or splitter, whatever that pitch to Maier was. It's the fastball command that'll be what's talked about from this start, though. And rightly so.

Well, Ubaldo flirted with disaster all night, so I'll happily take 4 runs in 5IP.

Now, offense keep adding on.

Good to see him hit 95 consistently as the ball game went on and even touch 96 on occasions even if the location was way off. It's still not the velocity he was at 2-3 seasons ago but it shows a stronger, healthier arm than he had in '11

Guessing Ubaldo has been off because of the shift in his start date what with the suspension and all. Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. ;-) ;) :wink:

BTW, any chance we can play at "The K" the rest of the season? Just askin'...

When the Manager thinks Dan Wheeler is the better option, that tells you everything about just how terrible you're pitching Raffy!

Wow. Kotchman.

And Kipnis just hit a tape measure shot. That kid has some surprising power.

I am pretty certain the Tribe's 3 game run total this series will surpass the Browns total points their first 3 games of the 2012 season. royal pitching pretty much cures all.

I don't. I only remember watching him pitch and seeing him filling up his SUV at the BP on the corner of Carnegie and E 9th when I was walking to the game from a parking lot down the road when he was on the DL with an infected ingrown hair.
