I thought Gomes hit the homer until I saw Perez's face. No, we really can't multitask well - at least I can't.

Sucks that Zimmer got hurt on that dive to first. Can't believe they've won 18 straight, something I'd never think to see happen.

Going to the game Friday night, hopefully they are sitting at 22 straight by then!

Quote:
.......University of Kentucky wasn't the right fit for him and that ASU's college baseball reputation would make it a better fit.

In 2008, Kipnis batted .371 with 14 home runs and 73 runs batted in. He finished second in the league with 24 stolen bases in 28 attempts. Kipnis primarily played center field, but played all outfield positions and second base; he batted leadoff part of the time.
Quote:
In 2009, Kipnis was the team's leadoff hitter and batted .384 with a .500 on-base percentage and a .709 slugging percentage. He finished with 16 home runs, 71 RBIs, 27 steals in 33 attempts, 51 walks and 32 strikeouts. The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA), Baseball America, and Collegiate Baseball named Kipnis the Pac-10 Conference Player of the Year, a Pac-10 Conference All-Star outfielder, and a First Team College All-American outfielder. Rivals.com rated Kipnis the number one outfielder in the nation.
Quote:
In 2009, the first-year minor leaguer batted .306 for the Mahoning Valley Scrappers of the Short-Season A classification New York–Penn League, playing left and center field. While Kipnis appeared to be a good prospect as an outfielder, the Indians saw his potential as a second baseman. Kipnis felt he would have more success in the majors at second base, particularly because of Cleveland's difficulties at that position in recent years.

I know, right ?

The 'nati mob has the Reds' thread thread out past 100 pages, and I think that they began the post-mortem on their '17 season in early July. Poor bastards deserve better.....

Reds have some good hitting, but the fielding and, especially, the pitching is struggling. Maybe they'll be better next year - if they can keep the pitchers healthy.

Indians thread = quality over quantity (sos).

Wow! Thanks for the reminder it's a day game. Nice mid-week break! I imagine some little kids and big kids (like me) will play hooky tomorrow. Cold one in the Kelvinator!

And yet when they finally lose, Brian will tell us all how bad they suck and how Francona should be fired.

That bottom of the 3rd today was surreal. The strike zone has been a moving target all afternoon so if you are the Tigers you kind of have to shake your head and move on. The last thing you want is your catcher jawing with the ump only to get thrown out and have the back up catcher allow a passed ball that plunks the umpire with a fastball that got no leather. Bonus points for Miggy jawing with the fans in the expensive seats, I would not be surpsied if this thing gets out of hand an Indian gets plunked with a fastball.

My thoughts, too. Time to take a chill pill.

My favorite remark I read was: Kevin Durant announces that he will sign with the Indians.

Ol' Miggy was a jovial ambassador of baseball when all was going his way, but he has really shown his azz this season. He's looking like a punk. Maybe he'll bounce back when fully healthy again, but maybe not. If it was me on the hook with him until 2023 at $27mill/, I'd be plenty worried.

There was a game early season in which the Tribe was working him inside, and he leaned into one. He got brushed and made a huge production about it, trying to get the ump to officially warn the pitcher. I think that was the point that he knew that we knew how to beat him. I'm not sure what precipitated the big brouhaha in the Bronx with him, but I'm guessing it revolved around something similar at least in part. He doesn't seem able to turn on a fastball inside too well at all.

Bold prediction: This steak will wear the Indians out, they end up playing. 500 ball the rest of the season and get bounced in the ALDS. Hope not though.

Did you notice the way that he has been turning his rosters over ? He is not managing the streak. Nothing bad can come of this.

You have not really been watching this very closely, have you ?

Watch out for that back-door slider! He's a tricky one.

Just SWO hating at its finest.. Tito trots out different lineup every night and bullpen has been managed well.. Anybody else notice Shaw hitting 97 with the cutter today? Also it appears they will be up 2.5 games going into KC series.. Maybe they will run the dodgers down while their at it..

Yes, I know...I'm whining, but I don't care. But I witnessed the further demise of ESPN SportsCenter last night. The Indians just accomplished something that has never been done in 116 years and what do the morons Everett and Jarrett lead with? The Dodgers win over San Francisco for their unprecedented second win in a row. And they wonder why subscribers are jettisoning this joke of a network.

The nice thing is they won't have to run the Dodgers down. Just remain ahead of the Nats. I doubt the Dodgers get to the WS
