1Q: Cavs capture Lottery’s top pick
What to do with it? There isn’t a superstar here, unlike last time when we picked Kyrie.
Nerlens Noel is barely over 200 lbs. He doesn’t have an offensive game. And he’ll be unable to play until December, at least, from his torn Achilles injury.
Otto Porter is solid, but not spectacular. Drafting him would go after a position of need. But you don’t do that with the 1st pick.
Ben McLemore is a good shooter.
Do we trade the pick for a veteran? If we don’t see a star, why would someone else trade with us?
2Q: Indians Imploded in Beantown
Chris Perez’s problems continue. He couldn’t protect a 3 run lead on Sunday. And he had to leave after injuring his arm. He’s on the DL with a sore right shoulder. The team recalled Nick Hagadone (again).
Hagadone gave up a 2R HR in Monday’s game in the 8th inning against the Reds to blow the game for the Tribe.
Vinnie Pestano blew Saturday’s game. He’s recently back from injury himself. Who steps in to close now?
Corey Kluber (1ER, 3H, 10K in 6 ⅔ IP) pitched a really good game in a hitter’s park on Sunday. It’s a shame the team couldn’t hang on to win that one.
3Q: It was a rough week for the Tribe
After the 4 game sweep over Seattle, we dropped a pair at home to Detroit.
2 months into the season, let’s look at the standings:
