Another game, another dreadful display of offense. I suppose this quote states it better than I can:
"You have to be positive. I don't think anyone is panicking. In the past, I think some people might have pushed the panic button. We have to believe we're going to do it."
You could argue that Pettitte was simply on his game today. But if so, then virtually every pitcher the team faced in the past month has been on his game, a probability on par with a pig flying past my window in the next hour. And when a lineup full of talented hitters all struggle at the same time, wouldn't the most reasonable explanation be what Blake is talking about?
The most frustrating thing about this stretch of losing is that the Indians have just now fallen into second place in the AL Central, and a couple wins from regaining the lead.
Next Up: Detroit comes to town on Tuesday. Bonderman vs. Sabathia, 7:05 PM.
