I said it last week and I'll say it again: Vinnie needs to be shut down for two week. He's killing us.

God Bless Michael Brantley.

Always been a huge fan of that guy.

Seriously, that would have been devastating to yak up a 6-1 lead and go to 4.5 behind.

yes it would have been devastating, especially to the tribe's collective psyche.

this game was very reminiscent of the royals game earlier this week where the tribe was leading 5-0 and seemingly cruising to victory when all of a sudden the royals got 2 broken-bat singles and a walk followed by a grand slam and another solo shot to tie it up at 5-5. the tribe then went back up 7-5, but then gave the lead right back again and let the royals, who are last in the league in home runs, hit another home run to tie things back up at 7-7 and then gave up yet another home run to lose 10-7.

now that game was very demoralizing to me.

had they had a repeat of that scenario today with the tigers, i might have fallen down into full "hee-haw" mode with gloom, despair and agony on me, woe, deep, dark depression, excessive misery, woe, if it weren't for bad luck i'd have no luck at all, woe, gloom, despair and agony on me. :gah:

thankfully mighty mike brantley almost single-handedly took it upon himself to see to it that the indians won today and saved me from jumping off the ledge. :woot:

Unfortunately we won't be able to count on Brantley for two HR's and a double every game, so Smith, Vinnie, and a couple of other bullpen guys need to get their stuff together, and immediately.

Getting Reynolds back on track would help a lot. Today he actually had four plate appearances without a strikeout. He didn't hit the ball out of the infield, but at least he hit the ball into fair territory three times along with a walk. Baby steps.

Kluber rose to the occasion when we needed a quality start in the worst way. Too bad the bullpen blew the W for him.

I'm pretty sure Brantley will never hit two HR's and a double in one game again, no matter how long he plays, so this win was kind of a fluke. But I'll take it any way I can get it.

Chiz with two hits and a walk for the second game in a row, so it's coming together for him. He's been working deep into the count as opposed to swinging at everything in the general vicinity of the plate. He could be ready to go on a tear, or at least hold his own from here on out.

I wouldn't say never, he has the 2 HR's part down.

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
