Michael Bourn, about his assist on Miguel Cabrera’s “homerun”
What do you think about Chris Perez deleting his Twitter?
I believe the AL Central is more interesting than expected.
I believe the Tigers’ bullpen is making it more interesting than expected.
I believe the next two days, when the Indians face the Tigers’ Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander in succession, will tell us quite a bit about the current state of both clubs.
I believe we’ll probably read too much into the results.
I believe it’s also kind of fun to read too much into the results.
I believe that it’s the eighth week of a six-month baseball season, so my beliefs are very much subject to change.
I believe that, in Cleveland especially, some part of you is always waiting for the catch, the drawback, the booby trap.
But I believe that it’s hard to watch a team win 18 of 22, sometimes in the wildest of ways, and not believe.
Q: How many hot dogs did Indians fans consume Friday on Dollar Dog Night?
A: Apparently more than 66,000.
Jim Thome’s 511 ft home run aka the longest home run in Cleveland Indians history!
The comfort of Safeco Field was supposed to be a little less comfortable this season, with the walls moved in as much as 17 feet closer to home plate.
And for the most part, it’s worked. ESPN’s Park Factor lists Safeco as the 18th easiest place to hit this season, as opposed to last year, when it ranked dead last among all 30 ballparks.
But for Saturday starter Joe Saunders, the comfort of Safeco goes beyond the depth of center field.
As the Mariners continue their weekend series in Cleveland, Saunders will try to complete his first successful road performance of the season.
“It’s hard to explain,” said Saunders, who has an 0-4 record on the road with a 12.54 ERA, compared to a 3-0 record with a 0.94 ERA at home. “I pride myself on being a good road pitcher, and that hasn’t happened yet. So hopefully I can finally turn the page. I know I have it in me. It’s just a matter of doing it on the road. Hopefully we can turn the page a little bit and get a ‘W.’
I, for one, hope not. C’mon Tribe, back up Zach McAllister!
