Oh, oh God. Oh God. Oh God. Oh my God. Holy mother of God. Oh, oh, oh, oh God.
Zach Plesac made 3 bad pitches out of 95. All three of them were solo home runs. Regardless, my hitters could manage only one extra base hit, a double, and were shut out as a result. Cleveland is now 4-3 on the season and looks to take this 3 game series tomorrow from Detroit.
I almost had my first complete game this season. Aaron Civale went 8, striking out 10, and I had him start the 9th, but he gave up two straight hits, so I had Emmanuel Clase finish things off as it wasn’t a save situation. The bats were hot as well, with 8 runs off of… Continue reading 2021 COVID-19 Season: Cleveland Vs Detroit – 4/9/21
A 7 hit shutout performance from Zach Plesac, and the bullpen only made one mistake, giving up a solo shot home run. I finish this series on top and bring the team home for our home opener.
I came back to tie the game twice. One swing in the bottom of the 9th and it didn’t matter. Pitching in the early season isn’t looking too good.

I also should have backed up my game before making any changes. Learn from my mistakes, people. To make… Continue reading 2021 COVID-19 Season: Cleveland At Detroit – 4/1/21 REPLAY
When your starting pitcher gives up 5 runs in 4 innings and your cleanup hitter strikes out with the bases loaded, you know you’re not going to win. Bright side – My relievers struck out 10. Cleveland falls to 0-2 in this very early season.
My first surprise was that I didn’t recognize half the players on the Cleveland roster. Since I haven’t been following actual baseball due to COVID, it looks like I may have to do some research on my team. My second surprise was that Shane Bieber only got 4 strikeouts, not to mention giving up a… Continue reading 2021 COVID-19 Season: Cleveland At Detroit – 4/1/21
