going live here.
Going live at 6 36 at 6 36 in the east.
If you are watching a replay of this, gonna be talking Indians.
Little bit of browns.
Um, quick browns.
Um, but you know, Indians pregame working toward a 8 10 start, I believe tonight, um, eight o'clock start against the Chicago White Sox on the road in a huge game.
Obviously, Indians have six games remaining.
Could win all six.
That would be nice would be the nicest scenario.
But, you know, gotta sweep the White Sox.
You know, you could say Oh, well, these take two or three.
But at this point, you really should sweep him.
Um, so a lot of Indians talk to be had.
Jose Ramirez is back tonight.
Forget too far and want to share this.
And as soon as I started talking, my cat ran over so hopefully shows and start going crazy jumping.
So let me get a good thumbnail to share our good enough.
Um, let's see some hash tags in there.
If you are watching, I'm shared out.
If you're sportscaster user, which I prophesy if you popped into, let me just share this really quick.
All right? I won't share it on Facebook, so Yeah, just doing some Indians pre game.
I'm gonna throw in a bunch of stuff here at the start.
I did, um, waas NFL picks When I just put in the chat, there is my twitter handle an instagram handle kiss.
Um, we're gonna wait a minute here while I make sure all this stuff's going throughout the shared stuff.
Ah, we're day on Twitter.
Um, as usual, there's never a quiet day on Twitter.
There's always something going on today is more political talk about that, Obviously, Just a lot of stuff going on.
I'm more focused today on the Indians, who, like I said, have eight o'clock start tonight against the White Sox.
The White Sox are bottomed out, you know, they never really stood a chance.
Maybe if they got Manny Machado, they'd be a little better.
But you know, not this year.
Klinger's on the hill tonight against Carson Fulmer.
And really, the good thing is, at this point in the season, I mean, if you're a bad team 1 September hit, you called up some of year, sometime soak.
Levinger should completely destroy them by the issue.
With him is, well, sound.
It's the team's issue is that sometimes the Indian's struggle against opponents ation struggle against.
I could look here.
Klinger had a start on September 14th against Minnesota.
He went eight innings, two earned runs, 10 strikeouts.
The Indians lost to do nothing.
That is unacceptable.
You know, the White Sox harbors You're worse than the Twins, but it's tough to trust him.
I mean, he pitched September 3rd against the White Sox.
He gave up two earned rounds, nine strikeouts, seven innings.
Indians ended up losing 65.
So Klinger himself is a 2.
I think he's gonna come out completely, dominate the White Sox.
But I just don't trust the Indians as much as I should.
All right, cat below me, digging around with her.
Belen, just want to share something quick.
Um, my Twitter account, where I cover the Indians.
Putting that there And I will share that too, in case your first time of you, or you just like the Indians in general.
You sure? I'm typing this right? Believe one ball is a fan sided site.
I'm one of the site.
It's called site expert, but just editor managing editor.
All that fun stuff.
So Indians tonight? The main story, which recovered at believing Ball, is the fact that Jose Ramirez is back in the lineup, was activated from the Ohio earlier and then tonight, just to confirm he is hidden.
So Ryan Flaherty is finally out of the lineup.
Jose Ramirez is back on the Ryan Flaherty starting over you Chang debate.
I'm going to talk about any more than goodness.
Um, so we got the lineup tonight.
Usual stuff at the top.
Francisco Indoor Oscar Mercado, Carlos Santana, Yasiel Puig.
Then you got Luke Low hitting fifth.
Ramirez back in the lineup.
We'll raze down hitting seventh, which I'm fine with this power down their brutal prez.
Eighth as usual.
And then Mike Freeman hitting ninth.
I mean, he's been doing decent this year better than Flaherty and chain um, the only guess.
Although he's been doing well, I guess there's not a regular.
You want kid nous in there, especially considering this is probably his final season with the Indians.
But Of course, he's hurt with the hamate bone injury School seemed a bunk here.
Some tea because tea with honey.
That's what you need when you're sciences.
Air killing you anyway.
So strong lineup tonight.
I'm Clevant around the mound.
I don't think the White Sox pose too much of a threat, but, like I said, this is the Indians were talking about.
It's almost crazy to think that they have 92 wins.
Thinking of the ups and downs have gone through this season.
So their lineup, uh, I mean, it sounds like they're rolling out a bad line up, so it's just that they're not that good, Um, tweeted about full season ticket plans.
So you're a White Sox fan, and you wanna be set up for another year of disappointment.
Just talk to me.
Um, you know, on that White Sox train here, just wanna peak really quick.
Just I mean, the Indians used to be like this for what, 50 year or 40 years? Um, before they got good in the nineties, just being bad for so long, like the sea.
The White Sox last made the playoffs in 2008.
And throughout their history, they're never in the playoffs.
So between 1945 and nine, the world Siris and 59.
So that always helps.
Um And then, really? I mean, they lost in the LDS in 2008.
05 They won the World Series 2000 and lost in the LDS.
So since 2000 I've been in the playoffs three times winning a world.
When you win, the World Series will take it.
But in general, I mean, this year they're at 68 wins right now.
They had 62 a year before 67 before that, and then they were hovering around 78.
Win mark, mid seventies.
So you're the last time they won the division? I mean, is that 08 year they went to the LDS.
They've been under two million in attendance since 2012.
Barely made it in 2011 world.
They were well over two million.
Just rough for them.
I know the Indians, of course, before friend coming out here, they were in that kind of rough patch of, you know, they made the, um a L C s in 2007 had a few years break before then in the playoffs.
And then after that, they waited till 2013.
Gets a wild card game.
But, man, I mean, the Indians, since 1995 had some good runs in the playoffs.
They've never been terrible for, like, a decade, truly bad.
And that's what the White Sox are going through now.
So moving on from White Sox team history talking, MLB scoreboard watching, which is gonna be huge tonight, especially for Indians fans.
Um, let's see here.
The main one we're looking at is the Tampa Bay Rays, who are taking on the evil Empire.
New York Yankees wrote an article earlier about how we have to be rooting for the Yankees in that two games serious in Tampa.
And pretty much is gonna be, ah, Yankees home game.
I think Tampa drew like 8000 fans yesterday.
I'm against the Red Sox.
I'm not a huge attendance, You know, Stickler, I know if you have good TV ratings, Tampa's park is really tough to get to.
I'm throwing all the excuses out, but it's just the truth.
Um, but anyway, they're playing the Yankees Yankees Rays at 7 10 so they're result will be in before the Indians were done.
Aren't very quick game razor up 1/2 game, but they are off Thursday, so the Rays have a game today and Wednesday against the Yankees.
Indians air today through Thursday against the White Sox.
So after Thursday, the Indians and Ray's wife played the same amount of games.
Hopefully, the Rays lose the next to um, which would be nice.
Indians could sweep the Rays lose to a would be 93 66 the Indians that they sweat would be 95 64.
That's what you'd hope.
Then you go in the weekend serious, just, you know, less stress against the Nationals.
But other than the Rays, well, we're on scoreboard washing.
I mean, the Twins Tigers.
You could say, Hey, like, maybe the twins will lose out, but they already have two guys on in the time of the first.
They're gonna kill the Tigers.
Maybe I wouldn't get my hopes up or is tell anyone to get their hopes up, but the A's or the other team are watching.
They're taking on the Angels in Anaheim or L A.
I should say, um, both, you know, the Angels were having a tough year.
Oakland's huge betting favorites on the money line, by the way, um, but the Indians air two games behind the A's A's were sitting at 94 62.
There is still the chance that there's a crazy try breaker scenario in which the A's the raise, the rhyming teams and the Indians all finished with the same record.
I don't want that to happen.
That's too much chaos.
My hope is Indians just drawn both.
I didn't get that home game, but I mean, right now we'd be looking.
I mean, best case scenario.
I don't think the Indians are gonna jump the A's.
Um, it's Indians went out.
They've finished with 98 wins.
Right now, the A's are sitting with 94 by the other, facing a week Angels team.
And then they finished the year against the Mariners, who are kind of looking several years in the future for when they're gonna content.
And that's what the Indians, you know.
They get 98 wins if they were to win out, which I don't think they're gonna do.
I'm It's possible because the Nationals today they're in the midst of a five game series against the Phillies.
Took Game one earlier in a doubleheader, eliminated the Phillies from playoff contention.
But, I mean, our only hope is that they somehow clinched the number one spot.
The Brewers have a rough week.
Um, nationals get that top spot, and then they rest. Sure, sir.
On the weekend, which I believe is scheduled to pitch Sunday, um, and just kind of take it easy against the idea.
So that's a another team.
The route for the nationals.
You know, Philly is being at a playoff contention.
I don't think they're really gonna rest anyone.
They're just gonna play spoiler of possible and just kind of enjoy the last week of the season.
But, um, Nationals, their team, the root for course.
So we have Angels, Nationals, Yankees and then later in the week will be rooting for the Mariners against the A's and the Blue Jays against the Rays.
So, too bad bottom feeder teams.
Um, we'll be rooting for in that, So I mean, right now we're kind of in a holding pattern until, huh? Until the Indians play, because I'm talking about all this scoreboard watching.
But the Indians have to win.
So if the Rays lose tonight eighties lose today for the Indians lose, then we're having the same discussion tomorrow with only five games remaining.
So really, it's just need the way.
It's like when we talk about the Browns.
You know, if you do this, this this, we're fine.
If other teams do this, but you gotta win.
So 92 wins where he got it in a year ago, the Indians won the division with 91 victories, so that was nice.
But there I think the Twins finished with 78 wins last year.
Rest the division down there to just not good.
Very bad baseball being played.
I'm assuming the Tigers are gonna stink next year, so the Royals are still gonna stink.
The white sex might be a little better, but it's still gonna be twins and Indians.
It's just baffling to me.
Our teams could be that bad.
You see? No, this over.
These teams are playing for 2021.
Well, the Indians in between should still be good in 2021.
So, like the Tigers winning one game against the Indians this year? Honestly, embarrassing, um, to be that bad.
But if that's their plan, um when their plane Miguel Cabrera ton of money, it's not working out.
I'm kind of waiting for his contract to end.
It's just it's just odd to me.
I don't understand it.
I know that sometimes you have a rebuild planning your draft picks on pan out, whatever it may be.
Um, it's just not good.
I'm just looking here on sports cancers front page really quick.
I'm just seeing what everyone else is, uh, chat about at this point in time.
Generic NFL Chance.
Um, some live baseball.
I have tried to do live Indians baseball, but it's a lot long games there.
Hopefully think in a playoff game.
I love to do one.
You know, Indians raised her Indians A's, but at the same time, I mean, that conundrum of maybe I just want to sit in chill and watch the game.
Um, because usually when I watch teams I like, I sit in painful silence, uh, painful silence until a team scores for something bad happens.
That's what happened with me with the Browns.
Um, I'm on Sunday when they lost and on that note because, you know, we're really just waiting for the Indians to start.
There's not too much news.
They just have to have to win.
That's the news they have to win the night against The White Sox are huge betting favorites minus 300 money line.
Um, seeing believing ball right now, my coat editor just put up a post about Jose Ramirez being back in the lineup.
So you want to head over to believe one ball dot com and check that out? Yeah, Excited about that? So I have to mark that down.
That is something to keep track of for my personal records.
So no matter what, if you're a writer, streamer stuff goes on nonstop.
You gotta keep keep tabs on it.
So on that note, I'm gonna put the time stamp in here communes until minutes 15.
So I'm putting them in here because I'm in a shift to the browns.
Quick, Brown's chad, um, put my legs that make sure don't kick it, can't underneath me um, so I want to talk about the Browns would quit cause I didn't chat about them, you know, yet this week I was super bummed after Sunday night.
Um, it was very depressing Browns, you know, they ran a draw on fourth and nine, which I still believe that Baker mistakenly snapped the ball or called for the snap on that one.
I don't think Freddie Kitchens called that, but at the same time, Freddie Kitchens has been kind of weird.
This week, he has been saying, No, just blame me, Blame me.
And journalists are just asking him the questions.
They're saying, Hey, look, why did you run these four players on the goal line instead of running at once? He's like, Just blame me.
Okay, we can, but and what's going on and what's There wasn't supposed to be this.
You know, this struggle on offense.
That was why he was hired.
He was hired because of his offensive cancer.
The word prowess can say offensive knowledge skills he had last year.
Baker was running wild, throwing bombs every game, Jarvis, Landry, scoring touchdowns.
Everything you could think of it was going great.
This year is coming up very conservative.
Baker's consistently rolling out to his right, which puts cuts the field in half A soon as you roll out.
Unless you're Lamar Jackson.
You know the fall across your body, um, cuts field and have just struggling big time wondering what the heck's going on.
Um, of course, they did lose to the ramps.
So when you lose to the Rams, it's not the end of the world.
The Rams are obviously very good.
Um, I heard Jim Rome say it was kind of a CBS Sports minute with Jim Room.
I'm on the radio this big, he said.
This is more about the Rams winning than the Browns losing.
I mean, the Rams.
You you expect their defense toe, you know, stance.
Top of the line goal line.
Still four plays of what's supposed to be explosive.
Often, she have arguably the best receiver in football.
One of the best young running backs.
I'm a swell on the job.
He was tearing it up, confusing all around.
My main thing, I wrote an article on Fansite.
It's 1,000,000 page.
How much I'll see here, where it's located right now about how you know it's too early to call for Freddie Kitchens.
It's firing, which I know sounds ridiculous to most people.
But, I mean, I always based upon hearing like local radio on Twitter, which I know it's not the best basis.
A times there's local radio collars set their alarms or 5 45 call in for the six o'clock show like I'm mad.
All right, Crazy.
Um, that's you. That's fine.
But that's just not my not my thing.
Well, I wrote about how it's it's way too soon to be calling for Freddie Kitchens.
His job, The Browns consistently start over every few years since 1999 never goes well, pretty much since Butch Davis has been gone.
It's just not stop.
Everyone comes in with their insisted on bottle up.
Uh, Browns fans know the song and dance.
By now, Kitchens has struggled.
He's a rookie head coach, is his first time being a head coach.
He was like the running but runningback coach Colin Place once you Jackson's gone last year.
Anton Hayley, Of course.
So just a lot of once, I don't think it's being an apologist to say like Hey, we should be patience.
Look, I don't think that's bad to say.
I think it's logical.
I'm not saying because I said it, Um, just saying it because, like, you know, it would be a new fire in Week three.
Some people say, Well, I want to play calling to go to Todd Monk in Maybe Monkey is Colin or, like, at least giving like help with the place because it seems to be that a rat running a lot of I've seen several people say this.
Tampa, based on routes where everyone's going deep down stop baby Monk in does have an influence on the offense.
And it's not all Freddie's fault, so but that's what when there's extremely tight, you know, lid on everything that's going on, you don't you don't always know what's going on.
What's the case? Just a lot.
A lot to take in, Um, frustrating, though.
You know, they start one and two.
I was at the opener, um, big loss to the Titans, Very upsetting, 43 to 13.
I don't think they're very good.
They looked like total garbage against the JAG wires on Thursday night.
Um, last Thursday night, of course, just awful.
And they walked the Browns.
He was 15 to 13 late for the Browns, for shaky.
And then, you know, they lose that one big time week, too.
They dio, too, taking on the gents.
They will come 23 to 3, but the whole game you're going, man, you know, there's a huge 89 yard touchdown on our yard. Touchdown toe.
What you want to see? But there was an inspiring like of the offense.
So you start to worry.
You know, she often is gonna be okay.
You know what's going on.
And then Sunday happens and the offense puts up 13 points.
I should have been 20 or 21.
They could punch it in at the end with a quick run play.
Um, we have just very upsetting.
The defense has played great, but of course, Freddie Kitchens is calling the offense.
So even as head coach, the defensive play this matter. That's Allstate.
Wilkes is credit, so people are calling for Freddie Kitchens this job way too soon for that. That's insane.
I also don't think he should give up play calling.
So So let's say he's calling on his place.
I'm time monk and barely has an influence, which I don't think it's true at all that you wouldn't be in Cleveland.
That was the case.
Um, and people want Monk and call the place.
It's been three games.
Let Freddie get back to what he was doing last year.
Because if you remember or people in Cleveland remember, he said, You're a player said he came in and asked everyone, what works for you? What are our best players? And he did that.
Maybe he had too much time this offseason.
That kind of overthink things, whatever it may be, he's got to get back to what he was doing in the past because it was working is working well to me.
The Browns finished 781 after a disastrous start.
Ugly? There were 26 and one.
I'm after a loss to the Chiefs.
Whatever it WASA can remember.
Specifically, they finished with a losing record.
Don't let that happen this year, but the main thing with the Browns to is they have their schedule memorized by heart.
But I'm gonna pull it up anyway, just to double check.
They start off you know, lose to the Titans, which is less than ideal.
Beat the Jets what they're supposed to lose to the Rams, which they were not favored in that game.
Then you have Baltimore San Francisco on Monday night in Seattle and then a bye week and then New England.
So okay, that's weak.
Aid that seven games, brutal schedule.
Well, then, after that you have Denver, Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Miami, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Arizona, Baltimore, Cincinnati.
So the only really tough team is Baltimore wants.
I'm not gonna consider Pittsburgh a tough team with Mason Rudolph in their Buffaloes.
Three, you know, But the Browns could.
Browns could beat the Bills.
I love the Bills wrote about them for a year and 1/2 but they're not like a true dominant contender right now.
They could be, but now they're not Denver's own three.
I think I'll be at the Miami game, so that should be fun.
Arizona's better, but not great.
Cincinnati's garbage Week 17 against the Bangles.
I imagine the Brown she gonna run all over him.
One of those games with the other teams demoralized.
Maybe some younger guys were getting time and you don't sitting whatever happens.
But I mean, I don't think I think once you get past the 1st 7 games, that the Browns could even just be three and four.
You know they'll be fine the second half of the season.
I mean, I'm looking here.
I think they should be.
The Baltimore is gonna be tough.
The tricky thing is, if you lose the Baltimore, you're one in three that everyone starts really pressing because I think they could beat the Niners and the Seahawks easily.
That's a tough game.
They could beat them and then they could beat any team. They have the town.
But as of what we see now, I think they can go three and four through those 1st 7 games.
You know, I don't see any reason why they can't be a playoff team.
I mean, you have Denver, Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Miami, all in a row.
You end the season with, you know, since he or December is Pittsburgh, Cincy, Arizona, Baltimore Cincy.
Cincy Gantry wins Pittsburgh Speedway in Arizona when Baltimore's Tusk.
If you can go for and one in December after kind of a rough start, Um, I mean the playoff pictures and focus and the the F C.
Right now I'm pulling the playoff picture because so even you have the top six teams.
And of course, you could swap the Patriots of the Bills.
But for this, then after that around, just get away and you win your division or get wins in your division, I should say, And you're good to go.
Not the end of the world. It's okay.
Um, but just looking at the standings yelling grounds are better than the Raiders.
Think they're better than the Chargers.
But, you know, Chargers Air.
They have see contenders, but then they start losing easy.
Gangsters, for example.
This recently lost The Texans have a bad loss to the Lions, so I think the Browns air completely.
Um, why? I guess I should say Think they're completely fun.
I think there have the ability to be completely fine, but they got a Clinton things on offense.
Um, you can't be scoring.
Are struggling to score every single time you take the field.
Maybe, man, what a shootout that was.
The Browns were close, but since they only scored 13 and they had some just mind boggling place on offense.
The fourth of nine Dry.
Still can't believe happened.
I'm one of the craziest place I've ever seen in a bad way.
And then the four players on fourth angle or, you know, from the five first and goal on the fourth and goal brew brood.
Um, so you know, that's all I really got on the Browns.
I'm gonna predict.
Let's say I'm gonna predict an 8 to 1 victory with Mike Leavitt. You're on the mount.
A toe oneself Throw that in the chat box here.
Indians win 8 to 1 Bill.
I think that's gonna happen.
Um, Jose Ramirez is back.
His hand is probably a lot of pain.
He's playing the night.
So my phone's blowing up? No, um, anything relevant Enough.
But approaching the 30 minute mark hair kind of a new 30 minutes, I might jump up our later to do another topic.
I just want to do some quick Indians pregame.
I'm like I said would do during the game.
But this is a stressful time, so I'll see.
I'll see what happens if it's going well I might Come on and do some Ended the game. Postgame.
We'll be sure to share my streams of your sportscaster.
