So what do y'all think: Is Pedro pressing? Is he hitting the ball with authority or does he look tentative? I mean, by now, he ought to have at least one base hit, right?

And Doumit continues his horrible stretch of hitting. He is not doing anything recently.

This game looks pretty losable right now.

Especially now that Donnelly has entered the game. :roll:

He hit the left-hander's slider pretty solidly. Layed off two out of the strike zone, big swing on the third, fouled off the fourth, and hit the 5th consecutive breaking ball solidly.

His AB was Ruthian compared to Doumit swinging at pitches that would have hit a gopher in the head.

And he showed a pretty good knowledge of the strike zone. He swings at strikes, lays off balls.

Finally, all we need to know about Pedro Alvarez is the following: The Indians brought in a lefty reliever to face him, and the guy threw 5 straight breaking balls. They were afraid to throw him a fastball.

Meanwhile, the Tribe had no worries about Carmona facing Ryan Church ...

Milledge is swinging a hot bat.

Russell, bring him in to hit for Donnelly. Or Bobby Crosby is the likely choice. :roll:

Slick ... Delwyn Young was the choice and he fans.

Tabata with the one-out double. Damn, he is quick.

Rats.. couldn't drive the runner in..

By the way, Strasburg has now struck out 32 in 19 innings as a Major Leaguer.. ten more K with no walks tonight. Crazy!

Ha! Tribe announcers have been complaining all night that Travis Hafner can't get at bats in National League
parks. He finally gets to pinch hit and Dotel hit him on the first pitch.

OK, Jones or Church get on and Pedro hits a walk-off HR for his first hit. Sounds good to me.

Every loss gets us closer to Rendon. It's the only way you can look at it and not throw up.

Sigh. 12 in a row. This is seriously depressing. And still waiting for Pedro to contribute anything offensively.

12 is just the beginning, people. The Rendon selection is all but assured. The Orioles can kiss my ass.

Instead of acquiring Bill Madlock, the team trades Stargell ... and Parker ... and Ott ... and Garner ... and Candelaria ... and Tekulve ... and Kison ... and Bibby ... and Blyleven ... and Milner ... and Robinson.
