Well, who would have thought before the season started the biggest concern outside of NY/Boston/Toronto and the Tigers is worrying about facing the tandem of Santana and Liriano when we play the Twins? Quietly and under the radar, Morneau and Mauer have started to play up to their star potential. Luckily, the Twins still have to use Silva, Baker and Radke in their rotation!


FROM CLEVELAND.COM
Broussard and Belliard weren't charged with errors. The rulebook does not punish mental mistakes, but C.C. Sabathia had a great chance to pick them up. Instead, Sabathia said he quit in one of the worst performances of his career.

Sabathia (5-4, 4.18 ERA) allowed nine runs on eight hits in 2 1/3 innings. The Cubs eight-run third was charged to him.
"What was inexcusable tonight was for me to give up," Sabathia said. "I'd like to apologize to my teammates, the fans, my family and whoever else was in the stands. That's the first time in my career that's happened to me. I just lost focus."

Sabathia would not blame Broussard and Belliard. Wedge did.

As for why he quit, Sabathia said, "As a professional, that's never happened to me before. I just lost focus. On one play, I went to back up home and dropped my glove."

"Everybody in that locker room knows what kick started that inning and how bad it was," Wedge said.
When asked what was wrong with the Indians, Sabathia said, "Everything. It's a snowball effect."

Good to see that he admitted his fault - you have to respect that.

I don't know what the Cleveland media is saying about Wedge, but he seems to have totally uninspired his players this year.

That Mark Shapiro sure put together a helluva team with a brilliant manager. He definitely deserved that 2005 Executive of the Year Award!

Under Wedge, the Indians are either at your throat or at your feet. Usually the sign of a bad manager.

It was his porn stache that inspired the men. Now he just sits there like a dweeb, his upper lip pale and bare.

I confused this title with the old thread "Sabathia quits Weight Watchers".

It can't be that bad, its not like they lost a series at The Jake to the Cubs.

From what I have heard Indian fans want him gone.

I dunno, just hearing "Cubs vs Indians" scares me.

Something about it is wrong.

After the post-game interviews he reportedly devoured one dozen Crispy Cremes, a kilo of bacon (with some extra grease for dippin'), a case of mallomars and a Diet Coke.
