The good news: One of the games was rained out, so it was only a two-game sweep.
Let's go to the checklist:
- Excellent starting pitching wasted? Check
- Closer gives up a home run? Check
- Fielding errors gives up costly runs? Check - this time it was Casey Blake (Sunday) and Franklin Gutierrez (Saturday)
- Failure to pound second- or third-rate opposition pitching? Check
- No sight of Andy Marte? Check
- 8 total hits in two games? Check
Right now, the Indians are a mediocre team. Something has to change to shake this team up before some other team gets hot and puts the whole division in a deep, deep hole. They can't keep wasting good starting pitching like this.
