We Have No Highlights To Bring You

I built up Danny Salazar a little too much in my mind. After his awesome start against the Tigers, I couldn't wait to see him again! Turns out that the whole "pitch too much too soon and you're not too good the next time" hokum is actually true. He was over-pitched the other night, going way over his 60-70 limit, and this time he was suckin' on a Fla-Vor-Ice by the 5th inning.

Zep (Marc Rzepcyzinski) (Scrabble), Shaw, Allen. Yawn.

Kipnis and Gomes with hits. Brantley ended his streak at 6 games. According to Jim Rosenhaus, there were at least 6 plays that he starred in the score book as "good plays." Tom Hamilton couldn't hardly believe it how much the Tribe was getting robbed. He said he was going to get up and leave if Kipnis' single wouldn't have dropped!

That's it, guys. Over-hyped pitching and complete lack of hitting against some guy we've never seen before. The whole thing with not being able to hit against rookies is pretty weak by this point. What are our scouts up to all season?? Go watch some baseball!

So, whatever. Tomorrow at 8:10 is  ZMac versus RHP 3.38. Oh good, this guy has a record against 5 guys on our team. Perhaps we can muster more than 2 hits.

See you there!
