Let's Go Tribe!

San Diego Padres @ Cleveland Indians

TV: none

Radio: WTAM,


Given that there's no TV coverage and it's Sunday afternoon, with many people out enjoying their life and/or running errands, and many sports fans tuned in to conference championship college basketball or NCAA bracket coverage, I don't expect a lot of action in the old game thread today, but here it is anyway...

Today's scheduled Indians pitchers:

  • Trevor Bauer
  • Bryan Shaw
  • Marc Rzepczynski
  • Scott Downs
  • Austin Adams
Bauer pitched three very good innings in his last outing, then gave up back-to-back-to-back home runs in the 4th. How about four very good innings without the back-to-back-to-back home runs today?

Today's Indians starting lineup:

  1. Michael Bourn (CF)
  2. David Murphy (DH)
  3. Yan Gomes (C)
  4. Carlos Santana (1B)
  5. Brandon Moss (RF)
  6. Lonnie Chisenhall (3B)
  7. James Ramsey (LF)
  8. Francisco Lindor (SS)
  9. Michael Martinez (2B)

Nice to see Moss getting some time in right field. With Nick Swisher looking more and more likely to start the year on the DL, the DH spot will be available for Moss most days, but Francona won't want him there every day, and Moss would have more value if he could cover right field reasonably well at least a couple times a week.
