May I also say, World Cup 2014! Glad Ronaldo is back, ready for some group action, if you know what I mean, and I think you do.

Jake Taylor: I play for the Indians.

Claire Holloway: Here in Cleveland? I didn't know they still had a team!

Jake Taylor: Yup, we've got uniforms and everything, it's really great!

Pshhhh. Try it during a West Coast weekend night game. According to Elias Sports Bureau, that's impossible.

They're in a division with the Royals, White Sox, and Twins, and only the Royals have even the potential to be good out of that group.

So to make the playoffs, they need to basically beat the Tigers.  The Tigers lineup is basically: Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez, Ian Kinsler, and a bunch of random dudes.  Two of those guys could go on the DL with a strained adipose and sink the offense in a hurry.

Right now, the Tigers are a better team, but it's based mostly on their pitching.  One or two injuries, or Verlander continuing to forget how to pitch, and Cleveland's the next-best bet to win the Central.

Granted, Oakland looks invincible right now, and you might be just competing for a runner-up trophy.  It's rare that you look at the team with the best record in the league and think "Man, they're unlucky.  They play so much better than their record shows."

If Cleveland is going to have to learn to win on the road. They can't seem to win outside of Cleveland.

It's RBIs subby.  Get it right.  Oh, I know there's this douchy nouveau pronunciation that's been going on in recent years, and it's technically right.  But it sounds stupid and we've been referring to multiple runs batted in as RBIs since the dawn of the stat.

I'm wrong. I know I'm wrong. But other people are wrong too, so it's OK.

So what you're saying is that if Detroit didn't have their best players, they'd be worse.

Both your cities suck. Let's move on.

Shame Us: So what you're saying is that if Detroit didn't have their best players, they'd be worse.


Yes.  I'm saying that because their lineup consists of two exceptional hitters, one decent hitter, and a bunch of schlubs, they're more vulnerable than a more balanced team is to an injury to one of those exceptional hitters.

Compare that to a team like the Cardinals, who regularly trot out 5 or 6 above-average hitters and no stars.  Any one of those guys gets hurt, and the blow is small.  Miguel Cabrera gets hurt, and the Tigers are done.

Yup.  Try it some time.

Way to go out on a limb by saying that if a team loses the best hitter in the game, they'd have trouble filling that void. My point is that Ric Romero has more insightful analysis than "If their players can't play, they'll play worse".

Some teams are more vulnerable to luck than others.  It's part of why Cleveland isn't such a long shot to land in the playoffs-- they have 5 consistent hitters to back up the two guys who are killing it.  Detroit has no such contingency plan.  Cleveland also has an easier route to upgrading-- they have offensive needs at 1B/DH, whereas Detroit is screwed at SS/3B.

You're a stalker and you creep me out.
I've told you many times i'm not a creationist.  Your brain is unable to accommodate for someone who points out flaws in various scientific theories without denouncing them as someone who rejects science entirely.  The world ain't so cut and dry guy....   I'll pray for you.

Touche.

Run batted ins?


No, the abbreviated RBI becomes a noun of its own, so its plural is RBIs.  Both are correct, but one sounds stupid.

Shawn Green still had a better day May 23, 2002:

6-6, 4 HR, 6 R, 7 RBI

Subby he is the 4th player since 1920 and the first since 1975 (Fred Lynn).
