Acta speaks with Asdrubal about late AB | News

Asdrubal Cabrera had three errors in Sunday's loss, and he compounded his mistakes when he failed hustle out of the box when he hit a deep fly ball in the ninth inning. Cabrera thought the ball would be caught, and when it bounced off the fence he tried to turn it on in order to get to second base, but Jose Tabata made an excellent throw to nab him.

Manny Acta didn't notice the lack of hustle when watching the game live, but he did when he was reviewing videos of the game.

"I didn't notice that until watching videos later on," Acta said. "I spoke to him. We talked about it. Caby's a guy that, we don't make a lot of things public, but he plays through a lot of pain at times. We respect him for that, but I spoke to him about it."

Well, not running a ball out is one thing, but the fact that Cabrera is playing through some sort of injury is another. Perhaps the hamstring is still bothering him?

Ohio State's Meyer visits Indians - Yahoo! Sports

Last night had a football feel to it, and it wasn't just due to the 10-9 final score. Browns first round pick Trent Richardson and Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer were both in attendance. Meyer actually had previous ties with the Indians, as he grew up rooting for the Indians, and was almost drafted by them:

Meyer said when he was in high school, team president Gabe Paul invited him to old Cleveland Stadium before the baseball draft.

''He took me down to shortstop and said, 'maybe someday you'll play shortstop for the Indians,''' Meyer said. ''They were supposed to draft me.''

But the Indians passed on him in the 1982 draft before he was taken by the Atlanta Braves in the 13th round.

The Indians are still above .500, but their run differential looks like that of last-place team. They need help, and need help now, especially in the bullpen.
