5/24: Indians at Reds

Today’s 1:10 p.m. ET game at Great American Ball Park will be broadcast on WTAM and STO. Peralta remains out of the lineup after jamming his wrist Friday night.

One thing is for sure. Those are some pretty sweet logos.

I know Cueto can be nasty on the mound at times, but honestly: How the hell is Laporta going to develop any sort of consistency when he plays so sporadically? I don’t get it. I’ve had it with Wedge and his stupid meandering lineups.

I’m tired of Wedge’s rotating line-ups, too, but in his defense it’s not unusual to rest guys with a short turn around, and even more likely it will be an outfielder since we have so many. LaPorta played 2 of 3 in Kansas City and 3 of 4 in Tampa. He’s getting his time.
