Mr. Opportunity Has Sore Knuckles!

Will this be know as the Indians' season of missed opportunities?
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.
