08/03/2013 - Indians in Miami - already a "must win"?

Unread postby dazindiansfanuk » Sat Aug 03, 2013 7:19 pm

With the close races going on, can the Tribe afford to lose a series in Miami?

Bourn singles, steals and scores on a Kip base hit in the first to put the Tribe up 1-0.

Z-Mac mowing them down with 7K in 4 scoreless.

Bourn leading off the 5th.... he lead off the 1st and 3rd and scored.... a little symmetry here in the 5th wouldn't be unwelcome.

Witness the Kipnis!!!

Great call by Blue on the steal by Stubbs when it looked like the throw beat him...... close play at home too, but looks good too.

Perez was pretty good there. Brainfart by Aviles made it more exciting than it should have been.

From what I saw on Gameday between sets at the concert I was at, Angel Hernandez's strike zone didn't do Perez any favors either.

I don't even know who One Direction is.

3 Doors Down concert. Daughtry was there too, though I mostly watched the Gameday box score during his performance.

That series had potential to be a big time trap. Impressive to take 2/3. I don't care how bad the Marlins are. They're not that bad at home and we faced three terrific young arms, two that we had never faced.

Bring on the Tigers.

I've met moscratch. He's not a teenage girl with a promise ring either.

Not sure why he knows about One Direction, but after Googling them, my opinion of him has changed. And not for the better.

i concur. after they lost the first game to the marlins 10-0, i had horrific visions of a repeat of the twins and mariners series' coming out of the all-star break where the tribe lost the first 2 games of both of those series by snatching defeat from out of the jaws of victory and had to scramble just to salvage the final game in each. thankfully they held on to win game 2 despite committing in the 9th inning yet another of the dumb mistakes which cost them those 4 games in minny and seattle when mike aviles failed to execute defensively on a sacrifice bunt attempt in which the marlins were willingly giving up an out to move the runner over to 2nd base, except aviles got too cute and thought about still trying to throw the runner out at 2nd base and by the time he recovered and threw to first, it was too late and the guy was safe at first. that boneheaded mistake could very well have cost them the game. thankfully it didn't and the indians are very lucky that it didn't too!!! oh well, it's all water under the bridge now and the tribe won the series, so yeah, bring on the tigers!!!

What took you so long?
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

Having a 6 year old daughter, who has friends in the neighberhood around her age, I gotta say I know the words to pretty much every One Direction song.

And I'm not embarrassed to say, that compared to the stuff put out by the humps that have shows on the Disney channel, it ain't half bad.

All relative depending on your station in life. I'd give em' a 6 on the American Bandstand meter.

For one thing, e0 hates him, so he must have some redeeming qualities. Also, he likes sabermetrics.
