...but now we're not.

Just wanted to note that the how-many-innings-without-a-run watch has ended. And resumed again. :thud:

Kluber at least flashing good stuff.

Problem is Josh Donaldson has joined the list of "nobody's who crush the Tribe".

Those back to back plays are just down right embarrassing!

Donald and LaPorta cementing their status as minor league scrubs.

Why don't the Indians ever have a list of "nobodies who crush" Team X? Our scrubs suck against everybody. Every other team in baseball has a guy that owns us and blows against everyone else.

Manny said Donald did not see the ball coming out of Hannahan's shirt. Guess we should wear the blue jerseys all the time.

Just had to tweak the Subject line to reflect our ability to get ahead in a game...

...only to lose a lead again. :gah:

The A's should send the Indians and their staff some Wild Card gear for laying down for them in such a key stretch of the season.

I didn't realize there was an afternoon game today. Today there were only 3 or 4 people in Tribe gear at Tower City before lunch rather than the usual 10-12 for the businessmens getaway.
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

The best way to get through today's 7th inning is every time Hammy says "Sipp" you take one from the bottle. Just sayin'.... *hic* :partyers:

14,500 paid attendance today. Had to be 8,000 there in person if they're lucky.

"walk" would have had the same impact.

First time in years (Jeff Manto era?), I am at the point where I have completely tuned this team out and it has nothing to do with football

. I've been watching Nationals games or shows on Netflix instead. I tuned in the other night and saw Shelly Duncan drop the line drive, his glove was only partially on his hand and said "Eh, I know the outcome already."
