about 10 55 here in the east.
Um, the Eastern time zone.
Just being here right now.
But tourism Indians post game after a pretty brutal loss that has the major implications moving forward especially right now with the finals elsewhere in the league.
Minnesota Twins winners tonight, Uh, the Tampa Bay Rays did lose while the Oakland A's are tied after joining.
So a lot going on tonight.
Indians fall 6 to 5.
Of course, big story from this fun.
I'm aside from the question will line up, scrawls crass, go before earned and one inning of working is returned out of the progressive field.
Got all the talk about on that with on that note, I should say, because it's a lot of Twitter arguments going on right now, so I don't know.
My twitter handle in here and I will share this stream out there.
Um, one of those games where you know it is getting deep into the year where it's September 3rd.
Um, this happens back in June during Krassner return.
We say, OK, you know, no big deal, but, um rockets, at least questionable.
He should have been out there in that situation, especially in his first home game since returning from his battle with leukemia, which is still battle, but, um, actually returning home.
So we share this talking fallout from the latest gastric Indians loss.
All right, so I'm sharing this out here, Um, sound from the people already in the room here on Twitter.
So we'll start with the main topic, Carlos Crisis goes.
So he comes in in the eighth inning, and I I was just on Twitter before I came on live, and it's Ah, some takes I kind of agree with, which is, you know, he probably shouldn't have been out.
There was a five to game.
You need to win every game.
Now you should need you don't need the whenever give you one.
No one ever again.
But now you talk around throughout the year, but you need the win.
These ones, um, bread hand.
Any other reliever out there goes with carrasco.
Um 52 game. Of course.
Surely no one's upset that crash came out at the time he did when it happened, but that's a high leverage bullpen situation.
European up 9 to 3.
The fan in Cleveland say it's not a high leverage situation.
People were attacking him, which always happens after Indians.
It's Ah, see tweeting again.
Yeah, another tweet by him.
I'm not trying to pick on him.
I'm just seeing it cause it's the latest.
You know how many people said what you were saying when crass co job done in the field? Well, the point is, it's the people are mad.
We shouldn't be met at Carrasco.
You're mad at the fact that he was put out there and failed humanitarian.
Francona. You're not mad at you, rascal.
I'm sure some people were tweeting dumb stuff.
A Cresco that's just ignorant. Stupid.
Um, he's a great story.
The anger goes towards you know he's forget, and this isn't to demean the situation, But let's say it's not even coming graft from leukemia, electricity.
He was out for some other reason.
Even then, this is still probably not the best idea to recommit, but comes back.
His first home appearance isn't a five to situation against the White Sox, who are bad, but they're not like tigers bad.
So, of course, two home runs.
McCann three run home.
Run him, Jimenez Solo shot.
And he was, you know, Cruz alone for bed too.
We did have two strikeouts in the evening, but rough go of it.
And really, in a situation like that, too, you're destroying his confidence.
Not good, especially.
You're trying to have him be kind of a key reliever moving forward.
So just all around. Frustrating.
On top of the fact that Indians tonight hand both Mike Freeman and Ryan Flaherty in their starting lineup clarity making his debut with the team.
I mean, obviously with Jose Ramirez out.
See there, you chang of clarity.
They brought up clarity with the 40 man roster expansion.
Uh, I mean the September roster expansion.
Athenians were journeymen Ryan Flaherty and journeymen Mike Freeman out there.
There's no other team or I should say no other manager that sticks with journeymen players like Terry Francona and trust them.
Ramirez being out kidneys, Still being out with his injury should be back tomorrow that I believe so.
But it's just it's not good.
There's got to be other people in the minors that you can call up to play third base.
I mean, everyone wants no one Jones to pop up, but probably gonna wait till next year on that.
But even you change.
You know what? Just put you Chang out there.
But scroll Twitter now, too.
And I do see some, you know, reporters calling out people tweeting negative things about crass go.
I looked at some of those accounts. I did that.
They look like Bob accounts, so I don't know why that would be a thing.
Um, shifting in my uncomfortable chair here.
Why, that would be a thing.
I have bought account tweet that some people are just trying to troll and be weird.
It's not funny, though.
I feel like a lot of the negativity and Twitter.
Sometimes in the sports senses, just people trolling.
I'm just kind of laying, but it's just it is what it is.
So, yeah, going through here, I mean, the flare flare have been in the lineup.
Give me a break.
Freeman had some hard hit balls.
Where did strike out twice? I mean, the whole I'm Internet White Sox played well, but you can't strike out 16 times against the Red Sox.
Ah, including three strikeouts against a bummer, which is a perfect, memorable name.
I'm of course, that's what Sex picture Aaron. Bummer.
But it's a bummer in the box score, which is how the game was in general.
You strike out that many times to the White Sox I wrote earlier this week and talk about other streams where the Indians have to beat up on bad teams and they were doing it up 5 to 2.
But even then, your crash gives up four runs, certainly put up five against the White Sox, and I'm getting picking out.
But the reasoning is that you blow a game like this.
Indian's about six and 1/2 back in the division with 23 23 games to play six and 1/2 back.
You still do have six against the Minnesota Twins, but I'm not gonna give up on the division interest because those Twins games are out there.
But it's not looking good.
Not looking good at all.
Um, I mean, the wild card race is still really what we're focusing on after this one.
Jump to the wild card. Of course.
That eh? Zahr still playing right now.
The Rays lost to Baltimore.
I know it was a double header.
OK, so they won one in last one to the Orioles.
So right now the Tampa Bay Rays are 82 59 all the Indians or 80 and 59 putting them a full game back.
Two of the Win Column of the Rays.
That A's airplane right now.
If they win, they will be 79 58 which will put them ahead of the Indians.
Cause are fewer losses, so we'll see.
A's raised Indians right now raised 59 losses.
Indians of 59 losses A's of 58.
Red Sox, Of course.
We're playing the Twins, which is a crucial Siri's for a lot of the wild card race.
So the Twins beating them kind of knocks the Red Sox out of the race.
But does it really matter for the Indians? We need? I need the win and first off on and then have the haze and race lives as well.
I'm getting swept by the race.
This weekend was not a good start for that, for the Indians sink, I mean, really now I mean, you come into the year going fishing with the division We wanted the past three years with these, um, clearly not the case.
That was clearly early on, being down 11 games.
You know, I tied it up back in first.
Now six a half bag.
So my prediction now is that the Indians will play in Tampa for the wild card game, which would be good, because it be mostly Indians fans there.
But that's just my prediction.
As of this second, I'm not gonna stick with that.
They start rambling up.
Someone's still got some more against the White Sox.
So, I mean, you gotta beat the White Sox, right? So I said yesterday that you know, you have a sweep for two days ago when I was streaming Indians after the sweep against the race.
So, looking at the schedule, too.
I mean, you still got two more against the White Sox, but with the way they played tonight, know whether I'm playing as a blade.
You get worried.
The machine Bieber is pitching tomorrow.
I mean, is that Is that it for sure? Win? No, it's not what the way they're playing now.
The division race, I think, will be decided.
It will be decided this weekend.
He had three against the Twins.
Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
The Indians do anything but sweep the Twins product of the division because then you're talking about being six or five or six games back, or even worse.
You know they do against the White Sox, Um, with less than 20 games to play.
So they really have to go.
They have to sweep the Twins two weekends from now and then play perfect baseball.
They're just not doing that.
We're just very frustrating.
I'm scared right now that they're not gonna make the playoffs.
Um, that's my doomsday scenario, but it really, very realistically could happen with the way they're playing now.
You know, crass co I was writing about, You know, maybe we could Ryan Kress gonna be aqui reliever, which he still can be.
But that's not good.
If you had, you know, the indiansbullpen obviously needed help.
Um, and you got who out there? Crass Goes on a second appearance back since a leukemia diagnosis.
Relied on in an eighth inning high leverage situation.
Um, I mean Terry Francona had confidence in him.
Fans were happy to see him out there.
I was happy to see him out there, but it's just not good.
If he is the one you who is being relied upon because it shows that there's really not much depth in the bullpen, you have to rely on him.
He should be fine.
Any was throwing hard, was, you know, doing fine, but just probably not ready for that type of situation just yet.
So a little ridiculous that he was out there and then, I mean, it's not his fault.
All No, I don't think it was blaming Carrasco for that, but may just fearing frustrating just in general.
I mean, the Indians yesterday, one in 11 3 blow out a good snoozer, I should say, Um, so that got, you know, I'm around back a little high.
I see a lot on Twitter with people saying this loss, this one is it.
This is the one that you know, demoralizes the team.
I don't really think like that.
I don't think that one loss there going.
Oh, well, you know, he's given up.
They don't take it.
Is I mean, they take it hard.
But some fans who have never, never put sports or just don't are just being dramatic.
Found they're not gonna lay down because of this.
2, I drop a patriot like notice because I have one for fund.
Um, as I say, all my streams I know with Sportscaster Cem, initial steps are beta stage of some tipping for streamers.
So, um, just turn that out their patron.
If you're also a streamer and you're watching this, you should have 1 May as well.
There's no reason not to.
But come back to the Indians, of course.
Six and 1/2 game deficit, not looking good.
Um, the crazy thing is, this year they're already at 80 wins.
So you think some years were teams win a division or make the playoffs with, like, just 90 wins or 89 wins? Not gonna cut it.
They're gonna need a, you know, probably at least 94 winds to make the playoffs.
Either A wild card.
I mean, Division 94 winds that would really have to have the twins kind of collapse because the twins are already 86 52 So for them, they get, you know, I don't think they're gonna go 44 and 20 year.
Well, uh, I can't do my math.
Eight and 16 you know, for them to have 94 wins and be eight and 16.
They even just went 10 games there at 96 wins.
Indians would be, of course, on Lee at 90.
So not looking good and all.
Very frustrating Indians, though when you look at the standings as well, they're 42 28 at home, 30 and 31 on the road.
But the key figures the road number there on Lee, 656 runs scored compared to a 20 for the Twins.
Of course, we've already said a home run record.
If you really want to see crazy stance, you could see the run differentials for the remaining three teams in the division.
The Tigers are minus 2 70 which I'm not sure if it is a record.
That's pretty bad.
Um, worst one of the league by 94 runs my life.
The Orioles reminders to 45.
That's the oil. You know.
The basement teams and the Marlins are minus 1 76 So just not good.
Wildcard race will keep an eye on it.
I like your doctor painting.
Thank you. It's also your dark painting.
Thank you for joining in, um, in the chat, the picture of me.
So I'm not very good alias there at M Fromberg wouldn't be 16 people in the room right now.
The virtual room.
Ben, is, um thanks for your comment. How kind.
So, like I said in a CZ win tonight, take it on the Angels.
Right now, they're now up five and two, which is a little bit frustrating, because that would give them put them a win.
It's 79 58 Like I said before.
Very realistic chance that the Indians going to this weekend, Siri's against the twins out of both the division.
Obviously, um, and the wild card.
So do not like to see that that's gonna start the doom and gloom.
I will do my usual check in on Twitter now.
Um, like, as I see once again not to pick on James your pain, but it seems like some of the I love 93 the fan in Cleveland. They're very good.
Better than ESPN.
Cleveland, obviously, But I think sometimes they're kind of cheerleaders for the Cleveland teams, which they're not supposed to be that, um, I get what he's saying, You know, you're defending Carlos Carrasco.
You're trying to say people shouldn't be saying crazy stuff.
But once again, he should have been out there.
He did not put himself in the game.
He's trying to return for a very extreme health situation, has pitched her once and then get thrown out in this situation.
So not his fault was throwing solid, but just bad managing.
And it's, you know, that that's another thing to It's fine to criticize Terry Francona.
If you criticize him for his decisions, you're not saying you hate him.
Some people are cause they're a little crazy.
But it's okay to criticize the manager.
I am in the trust in Tito crowd, and I do like Terry Francona, but it's okay to go, you know, maybe it's not the best we put crass Cohen.
Maybe Ryan's clarity shouldn't be in the lineup.
Obviously, complaining doesn't change anything.
I had to come around on this, too, because I used to freak out any complaints.
But fans, you know, most of us know that the complaining is not gonna make any changes, but it's okay to do it because it's just part of the conversation of being a sports fan.
So it's all right if you're a Terry Francona fan, which most Indians fans are.
Two k to criticize him because you made some bad decisions.
Nothing was the main one, the lineup.
Seeing a lot of people now saying, You know, I don't You don't think the Indians were gonna We gotta finish this one strong.
Like I said, I don't think one game is something where you could say that.
Say Okay, well, that's it.
That's, um that's the season.
I don't think that.
But I get I get the mindset.
I'm some kind of, um there was a beating the same dead horse halter.
But going over the same stuff here, back to the matter is they lost.
It happens back at it tomorrow, Shane Bebe around the mound.
Maybe don't put caressed go out there.
If it's a close game, I thought, you know, when he came back that his his outings would be, You know.
We're having against a bad team gonna blow out.
Um, but no care for him out there in a close game.
A little bizarre.
What happens? Um, it's fine.
We'll move past it.
That's all I got for this one.
Kind of a 20 minute head here. Postgame.
Gonna do a separate stream.
Now? I'm kind of an evergreen one.
Or maybe I'll save that for tomorrow.
I haven't decided yet, but Indians lose very frustrating proposition about their crass go line up a bit of a dad.
The ball is clearly juiced, by the way.
Look at some of the replace from the home.
Runs the White Sox it and frame your race when he lets him treated in a pop up nearly a home run.
She had 20 minute mark inside out here.
Um, follow me on Twitter, Check on my patron.
Become a fan of me out here when you get notifications.
When I go live. Thank you for watching.
I'm gonna be back with some NFL picks either very soon or tomorrow.
