    Indians at Reds (8/13 - 8/15)

    With MJ taking a quick break I’ll give it a shot at continuing the momentum of the series win against Arizona. The Indians are in town for a three game series starting tonight. All three games are 7:10 starts.

    Monday (8/13): Clevinger (7-7, 3.38 ERA) v Bailey (1-9, 6.19 ERA)
    Tuesday (8/14): Kluber (14-6, 2.74 ERA) v Romano (7-9, 4.94 ERA)
    Wednesday (8/15): Bieber (6-2, 4.24 ERA) v R Stephenson (0-1, 6.75 ERA)

    Well, Homer had a Homer type of game. 1-10 looks good. Sal on the bump tonight doesn’t look too good for the Red Legs again.

    Oh look, Sal is picking up right where Homer left off.

    These AAA pitchers are never going to win at the big league level walking batters. Thay almost act like they are afraid to throw strikes up here.

    Stephenson just threw a four pitch walk to the opposing pitcher. An American League pitcher. Who never bats. Four pitches. Unbelievable.

    They should have never called him up. Left him in AAA and traded him at the deadline or in the off season. Now he is showing he is not worth Nachos.

    I’d send Stephenson back to AAA tonight. The walks are outrageous. You have to be willing to make changes. Tired of it.

    I swear I saw an interview with him where he specifically said he wasn't going to change his pitching style to avoid the walks. WTH?!? I understand you don't want to just groove 90mph down the middle, thigh-high all the time...but, come on. I just don't understand.

    Yeah that was before this start. That was the straw that broke the camels back for me.
