Shelley Duncan Home Runs saves JobThe Cleveland Indians were forced to give Shelley Duncan the starting role in left field this season. Many thought the Indians were making a poor choice, the Indians even went out and signed Damon because they had second thoughts about Duncan being the teams everyday left fielder. The Indians saw Duncan go into a giant hitting slump, then like magic, just when you thought it was time to get Duncan out of Cleveland he finds that magic swing he displayed last September when he was sending pitch after pitch out of the ball-yard.

The Indians lost against the Angeles in the first game of the series and it was Duncan at the plate with 2 outs and the bases loaded, he got called out looking. Yesterday when Duncan stepped to the plate he sent the ball to the home run porch at Progressive field showing he still has plenty of power left in his bat. Duncan helped the Indians beat the Angeles in-game two with 2 R.B.I.’s in the second game of the series. Now what do the fans think of getting rid of Shelley Duncan?

Baseball is a funny sport, hitters go into slumps for no clear reason, then it is like magic, they come out of those slumps and help their team win again. The Indians are no different. The Tribes offense got a park in-game two facing the Angeles. The Tribe piled on 9 runs last night to beat the Angeles in-game two of the three game series 9-5 after sitting through rain delay after rain delay. The Indians offense got going early when their lead-off Shin-Soo Choo hitter in his first at bat hit a triple.

The Indians never stop producing offense in this victory. Indians starter Zach McAllister pitched great for the first four innings. McAllister had a tough fifth inning giving up five runs. The Indians offense was able to come back and regain the lead. Then the rains came. The Game would go into a couple of rain delays and the Indians would get the win. For guys like Shelley Duncan his job looks safe for now.

    TRADE HIM NOW! While he’s a little hot! We could get something for this worthless piece of shit! Folks, he doesn’t know how to swing!! Heven’t you ever listened to Rick Manning describe him and his awful timing? He overswings and almost always too early. Most of his best bat connections go into the left field stands. The opposing pitchers know that but he can’t seem to change. You might be all high and mighty because he hit a couple out recently but he did that in Spring Training, remember? Then straight downhill and he’ll do it again my friends. This leopard can’t change his spots, believe me!
