5/10: Indians vs. Tigers

Happy Mother’s Day to any and all moms checking in on the Tribe today. The 1:05 p.m. ET game at Progressive Field will be broadcast on WTAM and STO.

cle.gifINDIANS (11-20):
CF Grady Sizemore, 2B Asdrubal Cabrera, 1B Victor Martinez, RF Shin-Soo Choo, 3B Mark DeRosa, DH David Dellucci, LF Ben Francisco, SS Jhonny Peralta, C Kelly Shoppach. RHP Anthony Reyes (1-0, 6.84).



det.gifTIGERS (16-13):
CF Curtis Granderson, 2B Placido Polanco, LF Clete Thomas, 1B Miguel Cabrera, DH Jeff Larish, RF Magglio Ordonez, 3B Brandon Inge, C Gerald Laird, SS Adam Everett. RHP Rick Porcello (2-3, 4.71).


Where is LaPorta? Why Dellucci? Righty or lefty, at least give fans going a reason to cheer.

In 58 ABs against righties, LaPorta was hitting .328 with all 5 of his home runs. Put the man in the lineup for crying out loud.


Again, why is Wedge being so stubborn? No Laporta, and another day of the .219 hitting “King K” Kelly Shoppach instead of the .278 hitting Ryan Garko. If I am Ryan, I would want to be traded. He’s better than this.

Yeah . . . where is LaPorta? I’m sure sitting on the bench is doing him a lot of good . . . If Wedge is going to continue his ridiculous antics, he should send LaPorta back to Columbus for some consistent at-bats. But he really should give LaPorta an every day shot for at least a week . . . David Dellucci is not the answer to our offensive woes, regardless of how well he did his first to games back.

So, I was clicked on comments thinking I should comment about how it is great that we called Laporta up to keep the bench warm, but looks like 4 people beat me to it. But seriously, if they aren’t going to play him, send him back to Columbus. Maybe our soon to be new manager will play him more. (I am not a Wedge hater, but this is getting ridiculous)

yeah. hopefully our new manager knows how to manage young and promising talent and isn’t loyal to disappointing players like Dellucci (still though, gotta blame Shapiro for giving this loser so much money), Shoppach (who strikes out every at bat), and Peralta. It’s time to give Wedge his walking papers.
