Okay Schedule-Makers, It's Been Fun, But Enough Already

This is written in the white-heat of the moment, and perhaps I am full of hot air.

So be it.

But this is what I think is happening to the Indians this afternoon. Not bad pitching. Not ineffective hitting.

What is happening is that the Tribe is facing a pitcher who has thrown two no-hitters, who was part of a shutout on Opening Day LAST year. Hence, the Tribe came IN feeling that they had to be perfect — to even have a chance. And, of course, once the pressure was off and the game was out of hand, the hitters relaxed and began producing.

I may be wrong.

But rather than test that theory, hey…schedule-makers? Could the Indians not face Chicago NEXT Opening Day?

Two of these is plenty enough.
