16/6/13 Tribe v Nats

Gotta love Kluber pitching out of a defense induced jam there.

I like him more every time

reminds me of Brian Anderson

Not as an Indian. And like I said it is not so much his pitching or what he threw (he's a left-hander so it would be silly to make that comparison)

Maybe I don't remember 2003 as well as I think

As an Indian, a 4.15 and 4.2 K/9.

I don't really see how the two are remotely similar. They don't even throw with the same hand.

Kluber still chucking 95 at over 110 pitches in the 8th. Amazingly, the 8th might have been the sharpest inning stuff-wise all game.

What a performance. A lot of maturity from him today.

Don't fuck it up, Vinnie.

Time for an insurance run or 2. Bourne w/ a good start
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

Kluber is really maturing into a nice pitcher. Doesn't mess around, mixes his pitches, doesn't get flustered. He isn't an ace, but he's a guy who will go out there and get results. And he grows a sweet fucking beard. I'm on the bandwagon.

Kluber was immense.

Defense let him down a bit and he bailed them out and then in the 8th, he got some luck on the liner by Solano, but still a great job.

Guy just looks emotionless and calm on the mound right now..... I guess a 5:1 K:BB ratio will do that for you!

Now 3 starters with an ERA around the 3.50 mark for the Tribe - not what most of us thought we'd be seeing mid June I'm sure!
