chris perez for rolaids relief man.

i admit i'm going to miss the high drama that was wedgie's press conferences.

also, how can the twins give joe mauer $184 million and we can't keep victor martinez?

i guess i forget that the jake (err . . . the prog) isn't the revenue generator it once was.

hell no, not when we've got russell branyan waiting on the dl as our secret weapon.

really like moving asdrubal to leadoff with sizemore batting second, especially if we put brantley in the nine-hole.

absolutely,

I think the asdrubal move to leadoff should pay dividends

and we can never underestimate the pure intimidation factor created by an opposing team knowing we have the mighty Branyan on our roster

keep reaching for that rainbow, cleveland.

asdrubal's going to need to be more selective at the plate. his on-base % dips about 40 points when he bats leadoff vs. batting 9th. if brantley can prove that he can hit and get on base, you're going to want him to bat leadoff before this year is over.

sizemore batting second is D-U-M-B. if not leading off, he should be hitting 3rd where he can really do some damage. the 2 spot in the lineup is for great situational contact hitters: bunting, hitting behind the runner, hit-and-run, etc., not guys that are supposed to be driving in runs.

that lineup should start off brantley-cabrera-sizemore by the end of the year (if brantley pans out).

four wild pitches for westbrook. apparently he's pretty rusty. still 161 games to go, but man, i wish we wouldn't have to wait until saturday for the beginning of mitch talbot's quest to establish himself as the premier pitcher in the american league.

i would just like to point out mitch talbot's line for last night's victory: 9 ip, 6 hits, 0 walks, 2 runs, 1 earned run, 97 pitches. brutally efficient, just like ol' cy himself.

Tigers pitcher pitched a perfect game vs. the Tribe, until the ump blew the call on the 3rd out of the 9th inning.

Highlight

At least the ump admit he blew the call.

yeah, that situation is somewhere between 'fucking sucks' and 'tragic'. feel bad for all involved.

Cy Young may not be on the horizon, but Ol'Mitch may reach the All Star game by default.

you're probably right. 7-4, 3.54 ERA, 32 K in 11 starts. not bad. probably the only other candidate would be shin-soo choo. depends on whether girardi decides he needs another pitcher to sit in the bullpen or another batter to stay on the bench.

indeed, but id bank on the extra pitching, and Choo's stats are even more pedestrian

don't forget austin kearns as the tribe's third potential all-star selection.

(everything's gonna get better in the second half . . . as long as they don't trade westbrook.)
