Some Random Rants

The Indians are 7-12, which is good for 4th place in the AL Central.  They have scored 79 runs and given up 90.  They haven't won a series since the first one.  Our Ace has pitched awful and has shown no signs of turning it around.  We owe Travis Hafner 49 million after this year.  That contract looks worse everyday.  Our most productive hitter bats 6th, behind the potent bats of Dellichaels, Hafner, and Peralta.  Seriously, who wants to bet me that Garko won't hit better than both Hafner and Peralta in '08?  Our lineup has little power, 10th in the league in homers and dead last in slugging.  The lineup has made Greg Madduxes out of John Danks, Dana Eveland, Justin Duchsherer, Armando Gallaragga, Joe Saunders, Nick Blackburn, and Scott Baker.  For whatever reason, the Indians kryptonite seems to be young, league average or below starting pitchers.  The approach against these pitchers has been horrendous.  Our 34 year old third baseman has an OPS+ 51 and he has only been given 2 days off.  Andy Marte has gotten one start.  A common criticism of the '08 Tribe going into the season was that they weren't going to get much production at 3rd, Left, and Right.  Good thing that turned out to be totally off base.  Obviously there have been some bright spots to start the season, but I am too frustrated to highlight those, and small sample size is acknowledged for most of the stats.
