Tribe's Now 11 Games Back

They lost a tough one last night, despite great pitching from Paul Byrd. If you want to get really depressed about the hole they've managed to dig for themselves, read this.

The Indians shipped Jason Davis to Buffalo after his dismal outing against the White Sox, and recalled Jeremy Guthrie to take his spot.

Speaking of Buffalo, The DiaTribe has an interesting post discussing the Bisons' performance. While the Indians have struggled, their AAA affiliate has six pitchers with ERAs under 3.00, including Edward Mujica, who has pitched 36 innings with Akron and Buffalo without allowing a single earned run. Mujica's performance is starting to get noticed, and he's being mentioned as a possible replacement for the horrific Guillermo Mota.

In other Bisons' news, Jeremy Sowers was just named the International League's Player of the Month. What a shame that the Tribe's staff is just too deep to give this kid a shot.

One thing that kinda frosted my pop tart about last night's game. Haffner gets on via a 1B error to lead off the ninth. Wedge leaves him in to run despite the fact that he moves like, well, a hornless rhino. His sub choices were Tim Laker, Jason Michaels or Jhonny Boottheball. In fact, the lack of a real option of a pinch baserunner has been a problem all year. Reason #697 why Wedge should be held accountable for shipping out Brandon Phillips for nada in return. Blinkety sniff you, Eric!
