Aug 31 2016IT'S MADNESS I TELL YOU!
The definition of madness: doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. This brings us to the Indians, and Josh Tomlin. Yes, Tomlin won 11 games in three-plus months this year. But that success is long over. Teams aren't fooled anymore by his 84 mph fastball. He can't throw the breaking ball for strikes. His ERA this month is over 11. He's given up 35 (!?) homers this year, second most in Indian history. Yet there he was again Tuesday, getting bombed by the Twins. STO's Rick Manning was ready to jump out of the booth to slap someone into reality. The reality? Tomlin is done, the Indians are in a dogfght for the division with Detroit. I don't know if Mike Clevinger will be better, but he can't be any worse.
