    Nishioka, not completely useless.
    There isn't enough defense on the planet to justify giving 500+ PA to a guy who can barely OPS .600.

    One more run here would be nice.

    This is a definite bright spot in a bleak season.

    I kinda feel sorry for the Indians, but it will be nice if we can pass them.

    I bet that Winless August and DFA Monster are pretty upset right now!

    This game shows how much mediocre/poor defense can kill you and demoralize you in the future.

    ---Ha! Too true! The other difference between Nishi and Valencia is that Nishi at least seems to realize and acknowledge his awfulness. If Valencia had played last night and gone 0-5 with 2 errors, he still would have been strutting around like the blowout victory was all due to him.

    This Indians team reminds me a lot of the late-2011 Twins. Unfocused and unraveling.

    I only caught bits of the game until the end but saw that Deduno only went 4.0 IP on 87 pitches. Yes, that's high/inning, but since no runs scored since the second on him, why wasn't he brought back for the 5 inning. Anyone?

    Reminds me of last year's Twins.
