This team can't just put it all together. Over the past six games, four losses, two wins, the club has scored 31 runs. The offense finally has started to find its feet and score some runs. But of course, the pitching has now gone south.
The Aeros managed to salvage each series they played by winning the finales. But they lost the other four games.
Beau Mills has sort of helped ignite...

Paul Cousineau and I are back on the cyberwaves tonight for some Cleveland Indians baseball talk in another edition of "Smoke Signals" from 11:00 - 11:30 p.m. EST.
