And those that say the indians must RELY on CC , probably dont even know that Millwood doest play for the Braves anymore. check out Milllies ERA since the all star break 2.95 in last month for you lazy ones out there. Westbrook scares me, very inconsistent, but Lee, Elarton, CC, and Milly are solid. The bullpen is awesome,what a turnaround in 1 year. sure wickman makes saves interesting, but he get gets saves, and have you seen F Cabrera, our new set up guy (K Rod- anyone)??? The Tribe has an EASY schedule KC,DET,TOR one more game away game than home games the rest of way, which is good since they play better on the road. 3rd best road record. , It will come down to the tribe, or yankees before the A's.
the A's starters are good, yeah, but A's fans are living in the past. Zito's era has been 3.80 last month, he's not the 2.00 era #1 pitcher you remember. Put your Dan Johnson saddles away, cuz You cant ride dan johnson to the promised land.
The Indians are going to see just how easy Toronto is.
Gotta watch out for the Twins, very emotional win tonight!
It's going to be hard for the other WC teams to compete with a Johan led team as it looks like he found his groove. Keep in mind the Twins also have Baker, Liriano, and Bowyer to play with in September, that folks is going to be one sick pitching roster...
Whats the biggest lead ever blown in August by a division leader? The White Sox are really struggling and have like 16 or so CLE/MIN games left.... it could get interesting
Now if they could of only traded some MLB arms for some bats and got these youngsters in there!!!!
I don't know if I'd use a #1 waiver on Liriano, unless he gets the starting nod from day one of his call up. Remembered how they handled Johan and how successful it was in his route to an elite pitcher.
