I love throwback jerseys but…

I almost always love it when teams wear old uniforms.
Even the ugly ones.
The Pirates and A’s wore some ugly threads in the 1970s and I LOVED it when they busted them out.

But Holy Crap the dark brown Padres uniforms were UGLY! And yes, they were worse than the yellow ones.

I like the brown and yellow “Kid from Left Field” hats… but holy cow these threads stink.

Then again, as of this writing, they have the World Champions down 1-0.

So who am I to criticize their fashion?

Good start for the Tribe

Everyone and their cow is expecting the Indians to fade from the race.
Everyone thinks that they will be overwhelmed by injuries and inexperience.
It is fashionable to point out that they had a great April but have been mediocre ever since.

So how do you stay in contention?
You beat teams you are SUPPOSED to beat.

The Indians are better than the Orioles.

8-4 win.

Pile up the wins against Baltimore and Kansas City and Oakland and Seattle.
These divisions are NOT lost in the head to head match ups with the best in the league but in the frustrating losses to lousy teams.

Stay focused Indians.
There is no superpower in the division.

Every Cleveland fan born since 1964 is counting on you.

It was a group effort of lousy pitching tonight in Toronto… and good news for the Red Sox.

Bartolo Colon was really awful in the first. Yeah, 5 of the first inning runs were unearned, but 3 earned runs in 2/3 of an inning is nothing to brag about.

That would be a 40.50 ERA stretched out to a season.
I don’t care which stat you use. That sucks.

The Yankees got 6 wins and a decent ERA out of Colon through the All Star break, which is more than anyone could have expected.

As the second half comes along, and his medical records are in, and the fact that he hasn’t thrown 100 innings in a season since his Cy Young season 6 years ago is sitting in front of us, and the fact that he missed the entire season last year and at a fat 38, even stem cells might not keep him healthy… the carriage could be turning into a pumpkin.

He’s let up 8 earned runs in his last 2 starts (6 1/3 innings pitched combined in those starts.)

Now the Yankees nearly came all the way back but fortunately for the Blue Jays, Red Sox fans and Yankee haters everywhere, the bullpen sucked almost as much as Colon did.

Seriously, if I told you the Yankees scored 7 runs on 14 hits including 2 Andruw Jones homers and saw Jose Bautista leave the game with an injury, you’d assume the Blue Jays got squashed.

Thanks to Ayala, Noesi, Logan and Mitre, it ended a Jays blow out.

A bad game?
Or the Yankees pitching depth starting to get exposed?

Well find out.

All I know for the Red Sox?
