I’m looking forward to Tribe vs. Pirates!

Indians fans should be, what with the whole 3-0 record again in the three prelude to season games over the last week or so.

I mean I am looking forward to having a Pirate fan to chat with on the Tribe thread when we play. 😀

1-2! HOLYSHITTHEYWON!!!!!!

Mitch Keller looked pretty good (a bit wild and not so efficient pitch count-wise, but didn't give StL much. And the bullpen was good for once and there was even some hitting. Wasn't expecting that!

Virtually every team in baseball is 2-1 or 1-2

Looks like SD could be the only 3-0 team and Arizona the only 0-3, right? And that's if SD can hold onto a 1-0 lead through the final few innings. Not something I'd expect; I guess the whole "start at end of July; playing with no real stadium atmosphere; only a short season" factors probably have something to do with no one really getting any momentum, but it's still kind of surprising that hardly anyone has been able to get off to a fast start, team-wise.

1-3 thanks to blowing a four-run lead in the 9th inning and losing in 11.

GOOD: Colin Moran, obtained in the Gerrit Cole deal, had two home runs, is batting .400 and basically is the team's offense.

BAD: Michael Feliz, also obtained in the Gerrit Cole deal, is a piece of shit. Gonna be hard to lower that 21 ERA considering you suck, dude... Kyle Crick, obtained in the McCutchen deal, is becoming a piece of shit. Bryan Reynolds, also obtained in the McCutchen deal, was great last year and had people talking about a potential batting title. He's still 0-for-the-season.

2-3 with a nice rally after it looked like they pissed another one away with shit pitching.

Holland good for five, then struggled in the sixth. Stratton got out of that situation, but struggled to open the seventh. Some dude named Del Pozo tried to prove his name translates to The Bozo by coming in with two on and going walk, run-scoring walk, 2-RBI 2B and walk before getting put out of his misery. But then, the Brewer pen did the same, struggled to get outs and it wound up 8-6.

2-4. So, I might not be Mr. Baseball Knowledge, but when you're batting .172 as a team going into a game and get one-hit in that game, uh, that's not ideal, right?

PAY RAISES FOR ANYONE WHO HITS THE MENDOZA LINE, GUYS!!!!!

Due to a night off yesterday, then did NOT lose. Meaning that this is looking like a team that provides the most satisfaction when they are not actually playing.

Oh well, back to recording losses tonight!

2-5. But they at least got in a couple meaningless solo shots in the 9th!
