The Cleveland Indians haven’t been winning since they left Texas. The team is now in a 3-game losing streak, and the fans want to know, why isn’t Lonnie Chisenhall in the line-up?

It’s a good question. The Indians dropped their 3rd game in a row since leaving Texas, and the hottest hitter on the team, isn’t playing in game 1 against the Red Sox. What is Terry Francona up to? Why would he take a guy who is batting .385, and not play him?

It doesn’t make sense, and the Indians need to win. It’s disappointing to the fans, and we are sure it is disappointing to Chisenhall too. Francona must be know what he is doing, after all, he is one of the best managers in the major leagues.

The Indians lost to the Red Sox 5-2 last night, I don’t know whether Chisenhall would have made a difference, but it would have been nice to know.

You could say the Tribes starting pitching didn’t do its job last night. Tomlin struggled and he gave up 9 hits and 4 runs in the 5-2/3′s he worked. Then Francona brought Nick Hagadone in from the Bull-Pen, and many are wondering why he is still wearing an Indians uniform.

Hagadone has struggled with the Indians for a few season’s now. How long are the Indians going to allow him to stay on the team? Isn’t it time to send him packing?

Hopefully the Tribe can turn things around in Boston, they have 3-games left against the Red Sox and maybe they can take this series. It won’t be easy, especially if the Indians best hitter doesn’t have the chance to swing the bat.

    Lonnie should of been in the lineup in the first game….no if and or butts about it. I agree, he may not of made a diff, but how management / coaches made the decision to leave him out beats me and all the other followers of the team . For all we know he MAY of had a 2 for 4, 4 for 4, or just may of crank a HR . BUT HEY, I guess they / we will never know now. I hope he rips the dam cover off the ball when he’s / if he’s in the box tonite on 6/13/.
    Lets face it, Lonnie had a carrer night, he’s worked his butt off to get where he is today. Give the young man a chance to help the team. Whats the worse that could happen, a lose . And by the way, THERE’S NO I IN TEAM, COACH. One player don’t make a team , we all know that. I’ve become a TRIBE follower because if Lonnie, purchased the MLB network to pick up the games. I want to win with or without Lonnie in the lineup. However, come on ! If he or anyother teammates in a slump I could understand. Lets regroup and take this dam series from the SOX’s. GO TRIBE

    P.S. I need a good TRIBE hat, summer style and fitted if available

      I think when a guy is hot, you need to find a way to keep him in the line-up all the time….. As far as the Hat goes, visit the Cleveland Sports 360 fan shop page, there are links there to get you one….
