Obscene

Sunday's performance by the Tribe was just obscene. Chone Figgins led off the game with a homer. A couple of outs later, Vladimir Guerrero went yard too. After that first inning, I wouldn't let my kids watch. They don't need to be exposed to stuff like that at such a young age.

Like most jerk-offs who write blogs, I tend to point out the negatives after a loss. The Tribe didn't make errors. They just didn't hit. John Lackey just shut them down. He twirled a two-hitter. The only Cleveland runs came against one of the best closers in baseball, Francisco Rodriguez, when Victor and Broussard banged back-to-back homers off him.

Victor's homer was the first since the end of April. He went 0 for a ton in terms of homers in the month of May. When your big stick in the middle of the order does that, you probably don't win many games. That is doubly true when your three hitter is in a 1-19 slump. What does that mean? It means that, unless he's fired, Wedge'd better shake up the batting order a little.

we at firejeffdatz.blogspot.com are for the moment focusing our attention on getting jhonny peralta moved from the third hole, as it seems to be a much bigger problem than jeff datz.
