Can't Win If You Don't Score...

Justin Masterson pitched very well for the Cleveland Indians last night. Jake Peavy pitched better and got the win.

You can't win if you don't score.

The Tribe is coming off of a 2 game win vs. the Royals where they scored 26 runs.

So why the flat performance last night?

Were they too aggressive as was suggested during the telecast?

Let's give credit to Peavy, he was masterful over Masterson and the rest of the Indians.

But we have game 2 of the series tonight.

Once again, we need our ace, Fausto Carmona to step up!

Sometimes I think manager Manny Acta should pair up Fausto not with the opposing team as much as with the umpire behind the plate!

If Fausto gets the low ball strike call, he generally has self confidence and pitches well.

Come on Fausto, throw low and hard no matter who is at, or behind the plate!

On another note, I was disappointed to see that Austin Kearn's attorney was fighting his DUI case in Kentucky on a technicality. the officer that stopped Austin may have been out of his jurisdiction but that doesn't change the fact that Kearns was weaving and under the influence.
Apparently the arresting officer was within his jurisdiction.

Here is hoping that the case does not get dismissed. Look for the charge to get reduced to Physical Control.

Too bad the story made the paper, I guess.

I will have little respect or use for Austin Kearns if he doesn't take responsibility for his actions.

Man up, Austin!
