Jul 25 2016WEEKEND FOR THE BIRDS
Yep, that was one bad weekend for the Indians in Baltimore. A three-game sweep, outscored 15-6, poor execution in every facet, had the lead for a total of one half-inning in three days. So what to do? Nothing really. Every team goes through ups and downs, and the Tribe has a six-game division lead with 65 games left, 39 of which are at home. After a homerless (is that a word?) series, offense is still the priority. Jonathan Lucroy is the target, but I'm not even sure why the Brewers want to trade him. Juan Uribe, hitting a robust .211, is 36 years old and fat. Time to say goodbye. We can hope Michael Brantley comes back soon, but that may be wishful thinking. The trade deadline is August 1, prospects Clint Frazier and Bradley Zimmer have moved from Akron to Columbus. Hmmm. Should be an interestign eight days.
