The Morning Edition (May 1, 2013)

From Last Night:

  • Garcia leads the Cards past the Reds with 8 strong
  • Shields leads the Royals past his former team 8-2
  • The Indians hit 7 HR including 2 more from Ryan Raburn as they rough up Halladay and the Phils
  • More than 46 HR hit across MLB

What I’m Watching Today:

  • Control savant Cliff Lee faces wild and exciting Trevor Bauer in Cleveland (7p Eastern)
  • Buchholz tries to stay hot against the Jays (7p Eastern)
  • Zimmermann tries to stay hot as Maholm tries to bounce back at Turner Field (7p Eastern)

The Big Question:

  • Seriously, what was up with all the runs scored last night?

The Indians offense pummeled the Phillies and Roy Halladay who did not look like the guy who tossed a couple good starts in a row. He’s not going to be a 6.00 ERA guy, but I don’t know that we’ll ever see the surgeon of the strikezone again. Ryan Raburn is being Ryan Raburn. He’s 7-8 with 4 HR in his last two games and is just crushing the ball right now. He’s the most engaging, streaky hitter I’ve ever seen. When it’s going good, he’s Babe Ruth and when it’s going bad he’s a reasonably good middle schooler. I just can’t look away. It’s a lot of fun.
