When I tore my ACL in two it sounded like a small caliber gun was fired. I don't remember the pain being as bad as what Barnes' looked, but I was more consumed with my football career being over. I do remember it not being a pleasant experience and when I tried to walk on it my knee dislocated. As severe or minor his injury may be atleast it's not his arm or shoulder and modern surgery procedures will have him back rather quickly considering the type of injury he likely sustained.

I can understand the viewpoint that barnes is fortunate its not an arm/ elbow/ shoulder, but I wouldn't discount the importance of legs & a solid foundation. Just look how different Grady has been the bat having knee injuries.

Pitchers need strong foundations as they are pitching otherwise they put too much stress on the arm/ elbow/ shoulder by incorretly compensating for a 'bad base'.

1 last point - it will be interesting to see if this alters the Tribe plans related to the offseason roster. Barnes was up for protection this off-season and prior to the injury Scott was a near shoe-in to be added to the 40 man roster.

I agree on legs, though I think we can all agree that a knee is less serious for a pitcher than an arm. does suck that it's his left knee.

As far as roster protection, I can't imagine it would affect Barnes to the point where he wouldn't be rostered. With how he pitched, a team in rebuild would be crazy not to take a flyer on him. Even if he is on the DL to start the year, almost better for them as they wouldn't have to have him on the roster as long. Looked like he could have been a ML reliever this year at worst with his stuff. And hell, on Houston he probably would have been in the rotation this year.

Barnes will be put on the 40 man this offseason without any doubt. My ACL injury was about as bad as it gets due to tearing some smaller ligiments and cartiledge as well, and I played spring ball in 5 months. It took alot of hard work and I had to wear a brace but if anything it helped me get into the best shape of my life. Oh yea, that was 21 yrs ago so imagine how far they have come with ACL surgery and recovery. I have never had any problems since my surgery and the strength in my leg with the repaired knee is/was good as before.

With the Clippers' bullpen as shallow as it is and McAllister maybe being done early with the rain delay, is there any rule in minor league baseball for how to handle a situation where every available pitcher has hit his pitch limit? Can a game be called early on account of "lack of available pitching" or is it considered a forfeit?

Espino with a good starting effort.

I don't think he is a relief pitcher at all, and wish the Tribe would just give him a month or so in the Columbus rotation and see what he can do.

I think they'd be surprised.

I agree, Espino is a Tomlin-light imho...but he just doesn't have the impressive control of Tomlin and that's why I think he'll flame out as AAAA/fringe MLB guy that may get a shot as a long relief/emergency SP someday in the Majors...but then again, that's what everybody thought about Tomlin too

Speaking of Tomlin-clones...I think Packer is the LHP version of him...great control, HR problem, depsite being more of a groundball pitcher. Tomlin too had an unimpressive 1st season at Akron 2 years ago...Packer had a terrible June with an ERA of 10, the rest of the season his ERA is around 3.5. His K/BB splits are still great, but his HR-rate exploded and he seems to have some bad luck and gets hit hard with runners on...he's still a SP-spec to watch imho

I was about to say that they probably will, but if Talbot is on "rehab" starts (which I think is probably a lot like the Ambriz "rehab" stint in AAA last year), he's essentially taking a spot in that rotation alongside Gomez, McAllister, Kluber and probably Joe Martinez. No idea why the Tribe is in love with Joe Martinez, but they clearly value him more than I do and more than they value Espino.

Now, that's unless this Talbot from the bullpen business is a prelude to him being the new long man, and that rotation spot stays with Espino. Which would be interesting.

Tremendous catch and throw by Jared Head in LF for the Clippers in the sixth inning.. just the way a player who CAN PLAY THE OUTFIELD plays it.. Maybe the Indians should get a clip of that catch and throw and send it to Luis Valmalo so he can study it and LEARN from it..

I think its a bit harsh to expect an infielder like Valbuena to become a serviceable outfielder overnight... he has very little experience in the outfield.

Good idea. Tribe should probably send video of Valbuena turning ML double plays too so that Phelps can see it :good:

Not having experience as a "serviceable" outfielder is a pretty big part of the problem.. being afraid to try.. is a MUCH bigger problem.. not being able is the result..

Hopefully, there won't be any Valbuena film to show.. good for the Indians.. I'm sure a real ML player can fill in to show young Mr Phelps the proper way to step toward the bag at first and fire a seed right at the runners head.. he'll get down.. if he doesn't the first time.. he will every time afterwards...

Well then Valbuena will be fine, since he has been trying and has shown he's not afraid to. :s_thumbsup

...has shown he's not afraid...
By pulling up on a fly ball when the game was clearly on the line & letting the ball drop.. Valbuena exhibited his fear of failure... He's not going to be fine. He's not going to be okay.. The only thing he's shown is that he is afraid. That kind of fear will net the young man a long career riding on buses. Not exactly "okay".. :cry:

ha, the only thing Valbuena did wrong there was that he forgot to strap on his jetpack before going out to play LF as that would have been the only way he'd have gotten to the ball, dive or no dive.

Fear of failure? Yeah, he didn't dive because he was afraid. Had nothing to do with the fact that he'd have ended up no where near the ball if he'd have dove. His only chance was to get the ball and hope the guy coming around 3rd blew out his knee and he'd have been able to throw him out. Diving for the ball would have been as useless as a scouting report from ink.

I really am starting to have a lot of hatred for Bruce Drennan. Paul Hoynes levels of hate.

He's on the Clippers broadcast and he flat out, no reason other than he jumped to this conclusion that "Mets had scouts at Akron yesterday to scout Pomeranz for a Beltran deal" I'm not sure why, but that seriously pissed me off.

And holy crap Mike Lamb is still playing?!

It's possible there are problems with Donald that aren't apparent, but I don't understand why he's still in Triple-A. Donald is a good talent; more talented than Kipnis and Phelps from a tools standpoint. Donald was a top prospect in high school, was one of the top amateur prospects after his freshman season at Arizona (disappointed his soph and junior years), and was a top 100 prospect after a great year in the Eastern League in 2008. Donald is not the quintessential no-tools guy that tops out at AAA. Some injuries have slowed him down, but this guy is 26 years old (entering his prime) and to me is the clear guy to be using at either 3b or 2b right now. Don't understand why the Indians are ignoring him. He is playing well right now.

I truly hope the Indians are only keeping Orlando Cabrera around for one more week in the vain hope that he can be used as trade fodder or something. By the 1st of August, O-Cab should be gone and Donald promoted as the utility guy, unless there's some unexplained reason why Donald can't do that.

Among all AL qualifying hitters, Cabrera is currently 3rd worst in OBP, 5th worst in OPS, and sees fewer pitches per at-bat than anyone.

I don't know anymore than you do but it stands to reason that a LHP who hasn't given up an earned run in a month and is devastating against LH batters would be near the top of replacements for your LH situational RP. Evenmoreso, with his age and being on the 40. Expect growing pains like the rest of the rookies but it would surprise me if he is not a keeper quite soon. :pleasantry:

I agree with you, Donald has been on the good prospect radar screen for some time, and except for injury problems he still seems like a potentially decent infielder to me.

Also don't understand why they'd start non-prospect Joe Martinez today, and put Espino in as a relief pitcher. Why not give Espino the start, and let Martinez come in as a relief pitcher? Espino did well as a starter last week, and has done so repeatedly in the past.

That's been asked since the beginning of the season. The Indians apparently value him more, is the answer.

Well Hagadone did give up an earned run just 2 outings ago.

But do think he could be pitching in the MLs right now. Got hit hard in June but settled down the last 3-4 weeks. Also gotta like his 8-1 K-BB ratio against righties.

As far as growing pains...definately could be the case. Then again, we've seen a number of times rookie relievers coming in and have very good success right away. Even a guy like Jensen Lewis was solid in 2007 (and Hagadone has better stuff). Pestano this year has shown great poise as well. :drinks:

Been looking but have not seen who replaces Smith. Anyone else find out anything? Thought it might be reactivating Goedert but I understand that happened well before the trade. Miller or Bryson seem most likely to me.

Curious myself. I don't know roster rules for AAA intimately, but I think CBus has 2 open spots (unless Talbot's rehab assignment actually takes a roster spot).

Clippers actually have two open roster spots.

Maybe no move because Indians expect a trade to fill a spot or they will be taking more players away. Or players who are in line for promo from Akron are in play for a trade. Who knows.

Is Thomas Neal playing tonight? While stalking his twitter page I saw this little nugget:

"That was the hitting session I needed. I haven't hit like that all year. Can't wait to join my @CLBClippers teammates 2morrow. #Excited"

That was yesterday, apparently he's en route to Columbus today. Anybody know if he's healthy enough to play or is he just joining the team?

Yes Neal is on the DL with no firm date for return. I thought I read somewhere that Langwell was brought up to replace Smith. Seems within the realm of possibility but is it right? :pleasantry:

Another HR by Head today. Too bad those pitchers keep missing the holes in his swing.

Langwell was promoted to Columbus yesterday and they signed FA Argenis Reyes.

Jared Head on fire!

Homered in his 4th straight game today to give him 19 on the season.

The guy deserves a cup of coffee this year but I find it hard to see the Tribe finding any 40-man room for him to have a look in September.
