Dennis Manoloff of the Cleveland Plains Dealer says the Browns and their fans should leave behind the culture of losing. Manoloff grew up in Cleveland, so he should know that is impossible. Is Manoloff going to hang put at the Heavenly Hill Farms this fall and wait for the Great Pumpkin to make an appearance? He will have a long wait because Angels’ manager Mike Scioscia ate the Great Pumpkin halfway through August during a four day food binge that closed four Hometown Buffets and two Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles. Just before he slipped into an insulin coma, Scioscia yelled, “The Paleo Diet is for pussies!”
There is only one way to leave behind the loser culture of Cleveland: put one foot in front of the other and keep walking to you hit a coast. Unfortunately, you will be conditioned to look back and turn into a pillar of salt.
Speaking of pumpkins and pillars of salt, Jeanmar Gomez turned into both tonight against the Detroit Tigers, giving up eight earned runs in 4.2 IP. The Indians have given up 22 runs in the first two games of this series. The Tigers have scored 101 runs against the Indians this year. With Zach McCallister scheduled to throw tomorrow, that total will certainly increase.
