Lots of emotion in postgame tonight.
For one, you’ve got Victor Martinez popping off about J.P. Howell’s fastball toward the noggin. You can read about that right here.
But most importantly, you’ve got Eric Wedge giving his harshest critique yet of this pitching staff, and Jensen Lewis, in particular. You can read all about that here.
Those of us on the beat were surprised Wedge singled out Lewis. Not that Lewis has been pitching well or anything, but it’s just not in Wedge’s nature to call out a guy like this:
"I'm tired of watching him throw. He's got to pitch. He's got a lot of moxie, got a lot of guts. He has good stuff. But you've got to pitch. If you're going to make it up here, you can't miss spots by a foot or a foot and a half and expect to have success."
Wedge implied that Lewis wouldn't be here if the Indians had other viable options at Triple-A.
Anyway, never a dull moment around here these days. We'll meet back here tomorrow... which just so happens to be today.
