As opportunity knocks, the Tribe needs to answer the door!
It appears that nobody is home and those knocks are falling on deaf ears.
The Indians missed the following opportunities today;
- Their anemic offense failed to support C.C. Sabathia in his quest for win #15 again today. In his last three games, C.C. has had three no-decisions and the offense failed him each time.
- That same offense left 10 runners on base today and eventually lost the game to the Devil Rays in 12 innings.
- As the Yankees beat the Tigers today, the loss by the Indians to the D-Rays prevented them from stretching their lead in the Central division to 2.5 games over Detroit.
- The ratio of walks to strike outs by the Indians today was 3 walks to 10 strike outs.
- Closer Joe Borowski failed to hold a 3-2 lead for the Tribe in the bottom of the 10th inning.
Perhaps Mr. Opportunity should call ahead. Here is hoping he hasn't given up and gone on.
