The Indians are a lot more fun than they were yesterday at this time

Morning news and notes for Wednesday July 31, 2019

MLB: San Francisco Giants at San Diego Padres

The Indians once again looked like a team that needed bats last night. Robinson Chirinos continuing his Cleveland ownage and Justin Verlander refusing to throw Tyler Naquin any low pitches was pretty much all the Astros needed in order to top the Indians’ clueless batsmen. Usually, we’d be sad about this right now, but HOLY CRAP THAT FIRST SENTENCE HAS ALREADY BEEN REMEDIED!

L O V E! IT!

You know who Puig is. If you aren’t familiar with Franmil, that photo above is him. Also!

Another thing I love

Less exciting things

• The Chicago Cubs acquired David Phelps

• Ervin Santana was scratched from his AAA start, which made people think something was in the works

• Fangraphs did an analysis of 40-man roster crunches

• The Braves added Chris Martin to their bullpen and paid one Kolby Allard for him

• Chih-Wei Hu really fell off the map

• Jon Heyman was right that the Indians had interest in Yasiel Puig

• The Astros are widely expected to be interested in Matthew Boyd or Zack Wheeler

Things you may have already seen on the LGT front page

• Trevor Bauer will be fined. Whatever, not our problem any more!!

• Danny Salazar will pitch for the Indians on Thursday!!
