I just got done with a meeting and flip on the radio to hear Field strike out.My timing has been really, really poor lately.

Jose Berrios, RHP | 3.51 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, 4.11 K:BB in 146.0 IP

 

Tom, thanks for not throwing Berrios's 'away' stat line in there.Gives us more hope.

OK...since nobody bit...here's the updated 2018 line for away starts...

 

4.59 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, 2.38 K:BB in 64.2 IP(average start of 5.2 IP)

 

It's not like these starts have been disproportionally against fierce offensive opponents.Apparently, it's his next hurdle on his way to becoming a true ace/stopper.

Gonsalves, Romero (again), Austin is too obvious which means he won't be up, Wade, and for the heck of it, why not Lewis?

Wow, Berrios' line has a lot of numbers.  Maybe I should use that as a pin code--never going to see a line like that again from him.  Right?

Every time I step away some team scores 3 runs. Way to go Polanco!

Sweet--Polanco homering on gameday as I'm writing my first comment of the thread.  Now my interest level has risen to having the radio on.

I just called up the gamecast and see Polanco hit a 3-run HR to tie the game at 4-4. I chose my timing... well.

Sano sure looks like he is starting to get more comfortable at the plate, very encouraging. Bad call on that called third strike though.

In the game, much like last night. Slow going then a HR and tied.

Berrios came up small today. So it's on the cookbook bullpen.

Could be a lot of things. Maybe he just doesn't have it today. Maybe he's putting a little too much pressure on himself considering who he's facing off against. I'd imagine when you're facing Kluber and you give up the first run of the game that's a bit of a "gulp" moment. But he just got Alonso swinging here in the third, so maybe that'll put him back on track.


Or maybe this is his third time facing the Indians this year and they have been able to get a good read on what he is trying to do to get them out. And, quality team that they are, they made an adjustment.
