Back From The Respite

I took a bit of a break this week from writing about the Cleveland Indians because there are only so many ways on can write humorously about them losing. However, Chris Perez’s performance in the bottom of the tenth yesterday was comedic genius, a tribute to the master of slapstick, Joe Borowski. Perez further pushed the funny bone envelope when he blamed home plate umpire Ed Hickox for the Tribe walking eleven batters. “I think it had something to do with the umpiring,” said Perez. “Sometimes you’ll see one reliever struggle, but not all five.” Meanwhile, the White Sox walked one batter all game and struck out fifteen.

Remember Me?

The Indians hitters are averaging about eight strikeouts a game this season, meaning they strike out more than any other team in the American League. Now that Matt LaPorta is back with the team, they should not relinquish their grasp on the strikeout title. Meanwhile, the Indians are eleven games behind the Tigers, so the Tribe has the Tigers right where they want them.
