Well here we are in the month of June and the Tribe is sinking a bit. (Some may say stinking). The truth is that the White Sox have become red hot and our pitching has been a little suspect lately. I believe this month will tell if we have a playoff team or not. We have a LOT of away games and of course some interleague play. If we can break even there and play the Tigers well this coming week, we just might be okay. Santana will be rejoining us Tuesday and we need him. We can’t afford to lose more games within our division. Nice job by Jason Kipnis with the bat. Hope he stays hot! Matt LaPorta is back with Johnny Damon on paternity leave. It’d be great if he got hot too. We could sure use his RH bat! Maybe they could release Duncan who I regard as a liability. Speaking of liabilities, Tony Sipp must go! We can count on him for only one thing. Blowing a lead! And c’mon, Justin Masterson! What’s up with the first couple innings with you? Cut it out, dude! You’re supposed to be our ace! Derek Lowe is really our ace and outside of one game angainst Chicago, he’s been great.
Gonna be interesting watching our pitchers bat this month and oh yeah… Grady will be back? and Pronk eventually be back and looks like Roberto Hernandez (Fausto) might be back after the all-star break. It’ll be interesting, THAT’S for sure. If we can hang near the top, we just might surprise the baseball world! Go Tribe!
