5/9: Indians vs. Tigers

A very Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there. Manny Acta’s gift to you is Asdrubal Cabrera, back in the Tribe lineup for today’s 1:05 p.m. ET game, which will be on WMMS 100.7 FM and STO.

cle.gifINDIANS (10-18):
SS Cabrera, CF Sizemore, RF Choo, DH Hafner, LF Kearns, 1B Branyan, 2B Grudzielanek, 3B Marte, C Marson. RHP Mitch Talbot (3-2, 2.88).




det3.gifTIGERS (17-13):
CF Jackson, LF Damon, RF Ordonez, 1B Cabrera, DH Boesch, 3B Inge, C  Avila, 2B Sizemore, SS Santiago. RHP Max Scherzer (1-2, 6.47).


Marte’s got 6 RBI in 23 ABs. Peralta has 10 RBI in 92 ABs.

Even Marson got an RBI. Wow, the stars align for the kid.

agreed. An effective Sipp would make dumping Perez and easier pill to swallow.

Wow, I was just wondering what the relief order was going to be, as it’s the top of the 7th and Laffey seems to have a handle on it. And yet here come Wood with 2 outs — they’re REALLY easing him into this.
So does this mean Perez will close today? I would guess. Who pitches the 8th? Wood for four outs? I would guess R. Perez for a match-up, since Sipp pitched yesterday. It’s a bit weird that Wood is back when he’s clearly not up to shape.

You know, I think Tony Sipp took issue with my comments during Spring Training and has made it his goal to make me look stupid (which isn’t very hard to do).
And while I mentioned that R. Perez’s future would directly influence Laffey’s role, I can’t help but think that if Tony Sipp keeps pitching like this, it makes clinging to Perez even more questionable.

Too bad Rafael Perez doesn’t try harder to make us look stupid … Donald had another 3 hits in Columbus … and right now I’d take Crowe, Jordan Brown, Duncan, or even Gimenez over Laporta.

Or Branyan, ST – don’t forget Branyan!
