tonight and they have had two relief pitchers leave in the same inning due to an injury(Miller and Betancourt). OUCH. I've never seen anything quite like that.

Ouch. On the bright side, the Indians always seem to have an ample supply of pitching at Buffalo and Akron.

my father in law had the game on for a minute and I saw the Tribe was creaming the O's again 7-3. Next thing I see, Baltimore is up 13-8. I thought that was just the Reds who did things like that.

Last night on ESPN Gammons was saying Jhonny Peralta was the best young shortstop in baseball........didn't even mention Lopez in his top 5 young guys.....

Now it's the bottom of the 7th and Danny Graves is in. Now I REALLY feel bad for them!

Actually, Harold Reynolds mentioned Lopez right off the top, but he said he was just over the under 25 year old cut-off they had picked for the discussion.

What's more disturbing than the freak injuries is Danny Graves' hair piece. Anyone catch him sitting in the dugout with his hat off?

I really hope Indians fans are enjoying this. I took so much crap about Graves from them for so long.

Missed that....my bad.........Jhonny Peralta and Lopez are pretty even in my book as of right now......Peralta better in the field and Lopez a better stick......both should be great for a long time.....Ohio has some nice SS...plan on hitting the Jake sometime this summer to check them out in person and see if the Jake is as nice as they say........

It's one thing that Graves is gone, it's even sweeter that the Indians are stuck with him! Maybe next, he'll get traded to the Cardinals....

I think Peralta has an overall advantage, which is no disrespect to Lopez, JP's just that good. They're very close with the stick (Lopez .291/.352/.486 last year, Peralta .292/.366/.520, similar HR/RBI totals), which is to say terrific. Lopez has an advantage in that he can steal a base and Peralta doesn't run. Peralta is better in the field. And Peralta's two years younger. He's not the best overall SS in baseball right this minute but there's no one I'd rather have for the next 5-7 years.
