Found June 03, 2012 on Cleveland Sports 360:
Well here we are in the month of June and the Tribe is sinking a bit. (Some may say stinking). The truth is that the White Sox have become red hot and our pitching has been a little suspect lately. I believe this month will tell if we have a playoff team or not. We have a LOT of away games and of course some interleague play. If we can break even there and play the Tigers well this coming week, we just might be okay. Santana will be rejoining us Tuesday and we need him. We can’t afford to lose more games within our division. Nice job by Jason Kipnis with the bat. Hope he stays hot! Matt LaPorta is back with Johnny Damon on paternity leave. It’d be great if he got hot too. We could sure use his RH bat! Maybe they could release Duncan who I regard as a liability. Speaking of liabilities, Tony Sipp must go! We can count on him for only one thing. Blowing a lead! And c’mon, Justin Masterson! What’s up with the first couple innings with you? Cut it out, dude! You’re supposed to be our ac...

Does Tony Sipp Belong In A Indians Uniform Or the Bull-Pen

The Indians Bull-pen has been the back bone of the team over the past two seasons. The weak-link is Tony Sipp. Every time the Indians manager calls for Sipp tribe fans cringe. Most often Sipp comes into the game and gives up the long ball. Sipp doesn’t fit into the Indians Bull-Pen. The Cleveland Indians have got to get rid of Tony Sipp and replace him with a guy that has the same...
