Corey Kluber—your new National Hero, a strange observation about our TV announcers, and Robin Ventura juggles pitchers

Corey Kluber went 7 innings Tuesday, giving up only 2 runs in the process. The last time a Indians hurler went that long in a game? Ubaldo—20 days earlier. The last time one went that long giving up 2 runs or less? Zach McAllister on August 11 vs Boston (8 IP, 2 R, 2 ER).

Elsewhere...

The WSJ has ranked Matt Underwood and Rick Manning the second biggest "homers" in MLB broadcast booths. At least they're near the top in something. Surprise! Hawk is #1!

Cleveland Indians duo of Matt Underwood and Rick Manning ranked second with just 23 biased comments and 24 of the 30 teams had fewer than 10.

And a chart.

Ooooooookay. Well then. How about we talk about Robin Ventura now?

You see, because Ventura noticed that the Indians have a lot of left-handed hitters (and aren't very good overall), he elected to go with Hector Santiago Wednesday. He will save Jake Peavy for the team he fears more—Tampa Bay.

Peavy, who along with the rest of the rotation, gets an extra day between starts. The Sox are set up for the crucial final few games of the season against Cleveland and the Tampa Bay Rays with Peavy on Thursday, Jose Quintana on Friday and then most likely Gavin Floyd followed by Chris Sale.

How did that work out for you, Mr. Liriano?
