CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – A slow start to the season for the Cleveland Indians has led to some comedic fact or fiction statements from Tribe fans on twitter this week.
Here, along with a few more serious topics, are some of your suggestions:
Fact: They better be. Workload over the past two seasons made this a question mark — and I’m not sure he’s out of the woods completely yet. I think the lack of consistent work — largely due to a drop off in regular save chances — hasn’t helped him pitch completely out of his funk. He’s still throwing hard, but his command hasn’t always been sharp this season. That could improve with more consistent chances.
Fiction: As a starter? That would be surprising. But could he be a September call up for the pen? I wouldn’t rule it out, considering he’s on the 40-man roster and the 24-year-old was just named the Tribe’s Minor League Pitcher of the Month for April (24 IP, 3 ER, 18 K, 4 BB at Double-A Akron). After a rough 2014 season, the Indians are certainly pleased to see him start fast in 2015.
Fiction: He doesn’t look a day over 64.
Fact: Foosball is the devil!
Fact: And Billy likes soda.
Wait, those are costumes?
