Here’s to a great week!
Indians 12, Royals 5
Melky Cabrera stayed hot, reaching base five times, and Jason Kipnis got hot, with four hits and four RBI’s. Shane Bieber wasn’t great, but decent enough to earn his 8th win of the year. The good guys are now 74-56 on the season.
Not happening says Tito and then Kipnis has a day. Keep it up please! From Jordan Bastian:
Francona also listed a few reasons for not wanting to move Ramirez to second base. First and foremost, Ramirez has not worked out at second at all this season, creating the possibility of a heightened injury risk for a late-season move to the middle infield. Beyond that, Francona wants to respect the fact that Ramirez is in the midst of an American League MVP Award-caliber campaign as a third baseman.
”I think there’s a worry of moving Josey,” Francona said. “[What] if somebody slid into second and screwed up Josey’s leg, because he hadn’t been over there? Those are things we have to think about. ... He’s one of the best players in the game, and if something ever went wrong, if something ever happened, we’d be kicking ourselves.”
He’s grinding folks!
