This game was lost with the bases loaded squander in the 2nd. If we rip off a 3 spot there, we win this game. Coco's ABs are just terrible.

So I snagged a few Tribe Towels in case anybody wants to wipe their ass with them.


I think you should save them for the Sox players.

They're going to have a serious case of the runs tomorrow.

The home plate umpire tonight was the worst I've ever seen, EVER. He should NEVER call another game in the Postseason.

This game was lost with the bases loaded squander in the 2nd. If we rip off a 3 spot there, we win this game. Coco's ABs are just terrible.

Entering the game, he was 6-8 against Westbrook, which makes it even more of a disappointment.

I agree completley. Double plays ruined this game along with Dice K's shaky consecutive postseason starts. We need to rip shit up the next 2 games, starting tomorrow.

I want to see RISP, that actually SCORE, WHEN IN POSITION. Loaded 0 outs? No runs? That's not the true caliber of this team.

Like said previously, we are here for a reason. We had our extra innings/Game 3 slump. Now its time to take it to these guys.

The fans were awesome. #1, there were very, very few Red Sox fans there. I didn't expect many, but I give them credit for not selling their tix.

#2, the scoreboard really didn't tell them to do much. They were standing on their own every time they had two strikes. I do have to give them credit. I know what the stats say, but I still feel like home field can make a difference, and if that is the case, tonight certainly was an advantage for Cleveland.

Now, that doesn't excuse the fact that for most of this year, they couldn't fill this place or anything close to it. But it will be a very hostile environment for the Red Sox in the next two games.

Wow do these people hate Manny. They have an irrational hate for Coco (its not his fault he got traded!) but they also hate Ortiz which was a little interesting---I heard him called fat, out of shape, "fake," overrated, etc.

Well after a sleepless night I am now officially worried about the series. Our knuckleballer better do something for game 4. All I can say for him with his pitching is LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.

Like the rest of my fellow NATION FANS, we could have done something really good in the 2nd but as I said befor the game our bats really needed to be going off and that just didnt happen, especially with basses loaded and no outs. Someone please explaine to me what the hell went wrong. I mean I watched the game but maybe I missed something here.

I can help because I watched it already last week. A fast start is key. Youíve got to win the first 3 or 4 innings against these guys when Westbrook/Byrd are pitching. You canít out hit them and leave men on and scatter your hits. They get an early lead and the aforementioned mediocre pitcher relaxes a bit. The middle relief is good and while Borowski sucks heís not afraid of the 9th and managed to save 40 plus games.
Last night was like a bad dream I had a few days ago. Hang a 5 spot on Byrd like the bum that he is and the series changes quite a bit. Then itís Beckett/Schilling vs. Sabathia/Carmona. Should it go 7 itís never a comfortable thing but you are home.

Yes ChiTown

You are right. I think we need to just try to push the series back to the Fens. Wakefield should be able to do something tonight with the rest that he has had. My question to all of you is this......

If Wakefield didnt have the bad back that he does would everyone feel more comftable about putting him out there tonight or it just doesnt matter because of his "low" performances earlier?

If we loose tonight there is no question that Beckett should do game 5. Well thats my thought anyway. I know that the "rest" factor comes into play alot but should we loose then its really do or die.

Oy gevalt.

One, it's "lose," not "loose."

Two, Beckett is pitching game 5 irrespective of rest. It's his normal spot in the rotation. If we win tonight with Wakefield, Beckett is pitching game five. If we lose tonight with Wakefield, Beckett is pitching game five. If we win or lose with Beckett tonight on three days' rest, we will not be pitching Beckett in game five.
