An old-school pitchers'-duel nailbiter ends in a victory for Cleveland and, fortunately for all of us, no off day in which the baseball commentariat might work itself into a tiz about the pressure facing the Cubs.
Not that FOX has any compunction about doing so for us while detailing Tom Verducci to make pretentious pronunciamenti from the infield involving Chicago poets. Shut up, FOX. I'm-a shove the lot of you into that pool McConaughey keeps backflopping into and hold you under. ...Well, I guess A-Rod's okay, and Burkhardt.
Someone's trying to drown the offensive points, that's for sure:
Here comes Arbour. Standings after the jump.
Yuhan 2 130.01
Bingham 2 127
Reid Love, Johnson 1, Yuhan 1, Drake 110s
Cameron 1, Shotwell, Bauer 1 90s
Bauer 2 60s
Bunting 2 plans, God laughs
The rest of the pool hopes short rest proves Kluber's undoing as he heads to the mound vs. John Lackey tonight at 8 ET. Anyone else going to be that jackass who spends half the party sitting on the coats and watching the game on the host's bedroom TV? Just me? Cool.
(Also cool: the Mets' Curtis Granderson winning the Roberto Clemente Award. Love that guy.)
