The Numbers Behind Why Vinnie Was Optioned ☆

Before game one of Wednesday’s double header with the Padres, the club announced that reliever Vinnie Pestano was being optioned back to Columbus.

Indians 8, Padres 6: The Murph and Plush Show overshadowed by Pestano’s struggles

Raise your hand if you had David Murphy and Nyjer Morgan as Cleveland’s the two hottest hitters? (crickets) I will be the first to step forward and say that I wasn’t enamored by the signing of Murphy to a two-year deal this winter, especially coming off of his worst season as a regular.  He started the season 2-for-12 and looked bad doing so.
