Tribe visits Yankees

Thu, Aug 15, 2019 4:08 PM

Well, I’ll stick my neck out and start this series thread. But I feel like it will be a “one and done”.  Just don’t have much confidence right now. I’ll be happy if we come out of this series 2-2.

The pitching matchups don’t seem too bad for us to handle, though.

Tonight it’s Plutko 4-3 vs Green 2-3.

Tomorrow night it’s Civale 1-1 vs Tanaka 8-6.

Saturday afternoon it’s Plesac 6-3 vs Paxton 8-6.

Sunday afternoon it’s Clevinger 7-2 vs Sabathia 5-6.

So here we go and time to fish or cut bait.

BTW, I hate the Yankees.

Go Tribe.

    Offense rolling, with J-Ram leading the way. However, we need Kluber/Carrasco/Salazar to get back, cause Plutko ain’t the answer as a starter (would love him in the pen, though)...TRIBE!!!

    Go Tribe! My husband and I will be at the game on Sunday. Very pumped.

    Solid game! Glad Tito finally benched Mercado. The way Allen has swung since most recent call-up I actually feel this is best lineup offensively and defensively. Allen has been surprisingly great in the 2-hole as he is seeing a lot more fastballs/strikes.

    Was taking with a friend. Kluber/Beiber/Clevinger and Plesac rotation. Plutko as the innings eater and fuck it, Carrasco as the Andrew Miller with Hand in the 9th.

    I've heard a lot of talk about concern with the pen. Big "if's" but if Kluber can come back to reasonable form, and they stay in this, the playoff rotation could be Clevinger/Bieber/ Kluber (likely in that order but Clevinger & Bieber might be able to flip flop). They could move Civale & Carrasco (assuming he returns) to the pen and they'd be in good shape.

    When was the last time the Designated Hitter took the mound  …classic.

    Whenever Hand pitches this series, we will get s good sense of his current ability. Will be very well rested and vs the top offense in baseball.

    Let’s not let this be the payback game.
