Sandy Leon pitched the seventh and eighth innings.

Not the ninth. The seventh and eighth innings.

If this Cleveland Guardians team has any self-respect, they’ll take a long look in the mirror and decide whether they are actually going to earn their paychecks the rest of the way.

It’s one thing to lose to the Detroit Tigers, a bad team. It’s another thing to lose three straight games to the Tigers, and another thing entirely to completely fold against the Tigers to the point that you’re comfortable putting a position player on the mound in the seventh inning.

This was the third position player pitcher for the Guardians in the span of a week.

This is not a serious ball club. More importantly, it’s not a good baseball team.

Your game recap: The Tigers scored a bunch of runs. The Guardians did not.

Good night.
