I also would like to see homefield in the first two rounds. Otherwise, #5-8 end up with a big financial advantage over #1-4 because they get an extra home game. If the first two rounds are at home, #5-8 would host week 1 and #1-4 would host week 2.

Tito has been nothing short of spectacular as Tribe manager. But I think it’s fair to call out his few shortcomings, biggest is his affinity for veterans over youth. And while his patience often is rewarded, in certain cases it’s just obvious he is wrong.

Zimmer and Bradley (and Ramirez) may not last, but it was managerial malpractice to keep them in Columbus as long as the organization did this year. Just zero excuses.

Did we save any service years by waiting until recently to call them up? That's the only possible reason that I can think of.

If teachers/districts are teaching topics (whether it be crt or anything else) which are not in the state standards for their discipline, then they are not doing their job.

A generation ago, the belief was that reducing the number of starts, number of pitches thrown, and number of innings pitched would make careers longer and reduce injuries. There are more players going on the injured list today, and you rarely see pitchers having careers as long as long Ryan, Carlton, Perry, etc. 

Going back to a four man rotation could be a big advantage, especially for small market teams.

With our rotation a mess and bullpen tired lately, the rainout today was a blessing.

I agree. However, I heard a few games ago Tom and Rosie saying that a 7 inning no hitter will not count as an official one. I remember back in the 60’s that Dean Chance had a no hitter after 5 innings when the game was rained out and it counted as official. 

Bumgarner had a 7-inning no-hitter a few weeks ago. MLB doesn't recognize it as a no-hitter, but he does get credit for a complete game. That seems like a contradiction.

Are all four games 7 innings?

Yes. Doubleheaders are only 7 innings now.

So they played in rain but cancelled with no rain? Now two double headers in a row? 

At least with the 7-inning doubleheaders, it's only a total of 28 innings.

May have to bring McKenzie back.

McKenzie and Allen might both be needed with the double-header coming up unless someone else is ready.

Plesac seems like an idiot. This is the second year in a row that he has hurt the team because of selfish actions.

And I wonder what the real story behind the injury is.

We don't have an off day until a week from Thursday, and we have a double-header on Monday. The rotation should be interesting.

I think that you may have skipped a game on the schedule. The TBD is a night game, and Bieber pitches the next afternoon.

How about the batters are not allowed to step out of the batter's box once inside.  The batters are the majority of the problem, stepping out after every single pitch and adjusting every article of clothing and jewelry they are wearing ...... ridiculous. 

Yeah, the umps shouldn't grant time after pitch, but I think that only works if the pitcher can't hold the ball forever.
