The line-up:

  • Mike is old
  • Where did Danny Salazar's start come from this week?
  • Salazar is healthy, and pissed off
  • Throwing heat
  • Just two pitches for Salazar, but seems to be good enough
  • Did Salazar throw soft early, then get aggressive in the second half
  • Playoff Salazar
  • Kluber returning to his 2014 form...ignore the fact that I said 2015..
  • Kluber's impressive numbers are better than 2014, because of the league-wide flyball revolution
  • Concerns about Kluber over-usage
  • Jim, and especially regarding Bradley Zimmer projections. Yeah...Mike's way worse than Jim
  • The Burke Prophecies: Zimmer's strike zone is just bigger, because he's 6'5"
  • "Missing" on Zimmer is an enigma. He swings and misses a lot, but he doesn't chase
  • The Zimmer process is just beginning. He has a long way to go...
  • Jason Kipnis and Lonnie Chisenhall are returning, how does this alter the team?
  • The click-baiting Jeff Nomina...
  • Chisenhall profiles so well next to Bradley Zimmer in the outfield
  • Kipnis is struggling with health, and it seems chronic
  • Sonny Gray?
  • Could the A's, who are scouting the Indians, be looking at a weird package of players for gray that don't include Tristan McKenzie or Francisco Mejia, because Billy Beane is weird?
  • Trading for more in bullpen, and Tito bullpen usage
  • Sonny Gray vs. Danny Salazar/Mike Clevinger/Trevor Bauer
  • Cody Allen is sorta scary right an elite sorta way
  • Is Edwin Encarnacion a sneaky MVP candidate?
  • Why the hell is #JRam "protecting" EE? Shouldn't it be the other freakin' way around?
  • Austin Jackson looks really good as a platoon
