You woke him up! Everybody woke up today! Asdrubal, Brantley, and Murphy went 10 for 14! Santana and Rayburn got a hit! Aviles is on fire! Chisenhall did something, but I forget what! Bourn almost got a hit! Swish only swished once and got 3 walks! Swishalishciousness!

Look out Tampa Bay, you got a damn offensive juggernaut comin' atcha!

We should have a 7 game winning streak. The team is alive and not dead and dying. One of the seeming characteristics of a Terry Francona team is that they take a licking - but keep on ticking. The team has resiliance.

So what if Detroit runs away. We can have a play off contention season.

When in search of Cleveland.com responses, this is the best that they can do.. so sad, really.. Why not just enjoy the team for what it is.. Good players gelling/coming together as a team.. playing their hearts out in front of sparse crowds who would rather see Johnny Football and the next version of the 5-11 Browns... good leadership but having flaws and peccadillos that prevent them from becoming an overwhelming force in their division..

Truth be told.. the Tigers, aren't as good as they were last season.. The only area they've improved might be the very back of their pen..otherwise.. not so much.. but..as we know...

Misery loves company.. don't join in.. as you haven't..

With the way Droobs is killing it.. the opposition should consider intentional BB's...

the Indians sucking this year has very little to do with Asdrubal.

As long as the Indians fail to produce legitimate talent from the farm system that can produce for more than one year, we are going have struggles like this.

Carlos Santana has regressed even more than he has in previous years. This guy is supposed to be our cleanup hitter and a position change has affected his hitting.

The Swisher signing looks even worse in the 2nd year of a 5 year deal. The Indians can pull out years like they did last year but they still have nothing coming out of the farm system. They can produce relief pitching but the starting pitching and position players still have been a problem.

Kipnis still has a long way to go before we can call him a star. Lindor has to show it when he gets to the majors.

In 13 years under Shapiro, we have yet to produce a consistent starter pitcher (FOR or #1 or #2). or a power hitter.

That is a problem in a small market.

On May 4th(when Bob made his original post), Asdrubal Cabrera ended three innings by striking out with a runner at 2nd....including the final out to end the game. We lost that game by 1 run.

Cabrera was hitting .218 with a .306 OBP after that game and by May 6th, his average was down to .205 with a .290 OBP.

He may not have been guilty of killing us by himself, but he was a co-defendant.
