    After being down 11+ games to the Twins not too long ago, it's very possible that the Tribe could be in 1st place by as early as next week. I'm not banking on it but, by looking at the schedules, the Tribe has KC coming up and the Twins have Oakland (4) and the Yankees (3) over their next 7 games.

    The Tribe is playing out of it's mind right now. If they do plan on winning the division, they are going to need to pass the Twins and get a buffer (lead) because looking at the Twins later schedule, it's pretty easy with a slew of KC/ChiSox/Detroit all bunched together to close out the year.

    I would agree with that, and looking at the Indians August schedule, it is brutal. My guess is by mid-August the Indians will either be in contention for the division, or done.

    Ok, but you ignored the last part of Laley's sentence, lol.

    What part was that? My point was that AAA is the place to 'learn', and the bigs are a place to hone and get  better. He said that he "doesn't see how mashing AAA pitching more will help. He won’t see enough, and they won’t be as high of quality", but IMO, Bradley needs to learn to hit off-speed pitches first, regardless of the quality. Tito did the right thing in bringing him up and giving him a taste of the big leagues, and now Bradley knows not only what it takes to get there, but what it takes to stay there.

    I think that he can also use work defensively at AAA. There have been cases where he struggles to make what should be routine plays for a major league first baseman (fielding grounders, digging out low throws to first, footwork, making correct decisions on cutting off throws from the outfield, etc. ) I get that we are counting on him mostly for his bat, but I'd hate to have a guy that young who can only play DH.

    I agree, and I also don't want a DH that can't hit a ML off-speed pitch (yet)

    And I think the division is their path to the playoffs. Don't think they will get in as a WC.

    As Perez comes in, Hammy says he has been “so good again this year”. Meanwhile, I’m sitting here thinking Perez has let every inherited runner score all year. His ERA is good, but I swear he doesn’t strand anyone 

    Thu, Jul 18, 2019 9:28 PM

    Hey he stranded them both! And thanks to a great play by, of course, Mercado (at least Hammy made it sound like a great play)
