Good read on Tim Couch- “When you’re in it, you think completely different,” Couch said. “But when you get removed from it you realize. That was almost an impossible situation to be successful in. It really was. We just didn’t have a lot of talent. Every week was a struggle. Then I had my problems. I kept getting hurt. It was one thing after another.” [McManamon/FSO]

The team the Indians are playing this week? They tend to cause headaches as well- “It’s not the losing streak that makes me want to snap. It’s that the Royals apparently have learned nothing from an entire generation of losing. For 25 years, the Royals have been the most anti-sabermetric team in all of baseball – while the Godfather of sabermetrics lived down the road in Lawrence – and over the last 25 years the Royals have the most losses in the major leagues.

And their current front office, like the front office before them and the front office before them, thinks that this is a coincidence. They keep arguing that the problem with the Royals is that they’re not doing the little things right. That may be true, but only because they’re not doing ANYTHING right.” [Rany on the Royals]

Former Buckeye Evan Turner on Mark Titus’ book- “You accept Mark for Mark,” he said. “I laugh at him, but I’ve got enough stuff to worry about without some guy telling stories to make money. You expect that from Titus, you know? When you accept somebody for who they are, you don’t get mad. He’s one of those guys who likes attention, so he started the blog, (and) he writes a book or whatever to keep the attention on him. You understand that’s what he likes, and that’s what keeps him going. That’s Mark, you know? … I love him for who he is. I don’t get mad at that type of stuff.” [Jones/CSNPhilly]

“Outside of Justin Verlander, the Indians shouldn’t be worried about Detroit’s starters. That’s why it is so important for the Tribe to keep their starting pitching on track. We’ve pretty much accepted that Ubaldo Jimenez is going to be a crap shoot every time he takes the mound, but Derek Lowe has been surprisingly solid in his first three starts, Jeanmar Gomez looked good Saturday night, and Josh Tomlin threw eight innings of one run ball in his start last week against Seattle. The biggest question mark is turning out to be Justin Masterson, who has given up 15 earned runs, 21 hits and 11 walks in his last three starts, covering just 13 innings.” [Red Right 88]
