Last night's game w/ the Pirates

Last night's game was bad all around.  Bryd looked inconsistant - I'm not looking for him to be in the starting lineup by the end of the year.  The starting catcher Wyatt Torregas, was visibly nervous before the game and that might have affected all the pitchers because the pitching for the most part was poor.  There were a lot of balls in the dirt. Only Hernandez and Matt Miller looked good. Fultz was all over the plate.

To make matters worse, the "fans" sitting next to me and in front of me had no interest in the game, don't know why they even came, but I missed a lot of action.  I have the same seat today so I need to have a backup plan.

Hafner played first last night.  I can see why he's a DH.  Stick to hitting, Pronk.  Aubrey relieved him in the later innings and again looked sharp and agile in the field.  It looks like Wedge is going to give him plenty of playing time.

A liner foul went right over my head and hit an older lady in the face hard.  She was hurt pretty bad, they took her to the hospital.  Very sobering.

Torregas had some beautiful throws to first to keep runners honest.  The crowd loved it.  I saw him play for Kinston and his footwork and throwing skills were outstanding.

Franklin Guitierez was fooled badly on a number of pitches in two of his at bats.  Marte had a good night.  His homer and Torregas's throws to first were the only bight spots for the Tribe.

I think the fans are going to like Josh Barfield.  He plays hard, he's nimble, and he's personable. After the game as he walked back to the clubhouse along the third base line, he made eye contact with fans, grinned, and good naturedly waved off those who wanted autographs.  He reminds me of Omar in this respect.

All in all, last night's game was sloppy on the Indian's part.
