Excellent Win Tonight

Sorry for the lack of updates lately, been a bit crazy around here. I know it was against Kansas City, but still a very good effort all around. Two points of note that need special recognition. Shin-Soo Choo went 4-5 tonight with 2 RBI. A decent effort by Gomez, 5 innings and 1 earned run, but our bullpen came in and dominated. Four shut out innings. I think Justin Masterson should stay in the bullpen going into next season. It will keep his innings down and he has shown in the past that the bullpen is where he shines. He was very good in Boston and has struggled in Cleveland as a starter. Masterson would be a very good bullpen pitcher and the move would allow us to keep more guys like Carrasco in the rotation next year.

Indians Claim Chad Huffman

The Indians Claim Chad Huffman from the Yankees and sent him to AAA according to Bryan Hoch on Twitter. The 25 year old outfielder has shown some potential, last year he won the Pacific League Home Run Derby as well as being named an all star. He has had his struggles this year but seems to be playing better lately. Not a huge pickup, could challenge for a roster spot next year though/

Baseball is not a dying sport

I am one of the many who still consider baseball to be America's national pastime. There are many people who think it is a dying sport. This is a fantastic article to disprove all of those haters.

16 Inning Game

I can't believe I watched the entire game, how terrible. We had so many opportunities and we blew all of them. I guess this is what happens when you have a young team.

Depressing Season has Reached the Final Stretch

I cannot believe that it is already September, how is the baseball season almost over! The Indians are, of course, out of the race and this last month is really only important for two reasons. First off, we need to see what some of the young guys can do in the majors. I know that they will be facing a lot of young guys as well, but experience is needed, no matter what kind. While the Indians aren't in the playoff race, we are in another race. The race for the #1 overall pick. While it seems pretty shady, playing these young guys and taking the losses is probably the best thing for the organization. It REALLY hurts me to say that...
