After two three game series wins, the Tribe moves on to league leading KC for a 4 game set.

Game one: Civale (4-0) vs. Lynch (who apparently hasn't pitched yet) 8:10

Game two: Hentges vs. Minor 8:10

Game three: TBD vs. Singer 8:10

Game four: TBD vs. Duffy 2:10

Go Tribe!

So should be Bieber game 3, will be interesting to see if McKenzie goes game 4. I assume yes, since Allen was sent down. 

Looking forward to Hentges debut as a starter. He is a very intriguing prospect.

Looks like 4 easy wins for Cleveland.

I like this Harold Ramirez guy. Quick bat and appears to have good power for CF.

I must’ve jinxed Karinchak after last game.

Where did Harold Ramirez come from?

Yeah.....Karinchak finally gave up some runs. 

We hung on for the win. (Shaw gets the win and has been doing surprisingly well)

Florida. Had a really good rookie year in 2019. Not sure why (injury?!?) he didn’t play last year (got in 3 games). 

And it’s not all that surprising. People need to re-evaluate his years in Cleveland. He was really good. Now, after his Colorado stint, I can see how you’d be surprised he regained his old form lol.

Yes, based on I thought he was washed up.  Tribe brass looking good now for giving him another shot.

Gotcha. I agree with that. 

Anyone else find it odd Clase doesn’t strike more guys out? I mean, he has been unreal so far this year, and for the most part the contact is no better than a grounder at someone (usually weak or broken bat). Just crazy someone throwing a 100+ MPH cutter with a damn good slider is only about 1K per inning.

I recall Clase being suspended for PED’s for the whole season after we got him in the Kluber trade. And being pissed at him. 

He sure is doing good now!  I wonder if the lesser strike outs is because hitters are getting a little better with getting the bat on those 100 mph balls.

Yeah, he did. And don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining about the lack of Ks, cause he still gets them out. But strikeouts across the league are at record highs, he has some of the best stuff in the game, and doesn’t get them. It’s just kinda odd. 

Chapman, Brusdar, DeGrom, etc. Those guys still touch 98-100 every outing and strikeout their fair share.

Andre is definitely the early leader for the American League Most Valuable Jock Sniffer award.


That cat needs to STFU for about 2 months.

It's the "tidbits" of uselessness that he talks about constantly. Seems like it's "Open Mike" night for him every night now. 

Personally, IDGAF what a twentysomething told him in the showers.

I see........Another good reason I listen to the radio. 

I also see that we are down 1-0 with no hits through the first 9 batters.

Right now he's telling us that he researched why Andrew Benintendi was traded from Boston to the Royals, and is sharing his findings. What a guy! Thanks man.
