Neither the Indians nor the Royals are winning this division. In a few months both teams will probably be bludgeoned back down into meek obscurity.

But, as of now we have a game between the best record in the AL and the second-best record in the AL, so what the hell, time to be arrogant while we still can.

Davies is one hell of a frustrating fuck. Will we be resigned with his inconsistencies this year, or is he on notice? Replaced in the rotation before the break?

For all the grief he's gotten lately, this has been a really good outing for Davies so far. He's only up to 78 pitches, so he might be able to give us 6 or 7 innings.

he's been more than willing to give the outside strike today, its the low strike he seems to have a problem with seeing.

So, both pitchers should be throwing high and inside/out today.

If my #5 starter can go 6 innings, and give up only 3 runs, I'd say that's a good day in the office.

nah, everyone has a good outing sometimes. With good pitchers, you routinely see good outings with a bad one sprinkled in. With bad pitchers, you routinely see stinkers with a good outing sprinkled in.

Baseball is very random, you take any one game and a crappy pitcher can go 7 innings with 1 or 2 runs.

so far, good pitching is clearly beating good hitting. Carrasco's at 78 pitches now. If the Royals are gonna win, they better jump on him in the 6th or 7th.

Yeah, but to be fair, KC's pitching seems to be doing all right, considering how many runs the Indians scored on the Baltimore series....

Davies has far more natural talent than Hochevar. Not even close, actually.

Davies is at 90 pitches. I say we take our chances and bring him out for the 7th, even though the heart of the order is due up. He hasn't walked anyone yet, he's throwing strikes out there.
