There was one heck of a brawl in the stands in Cleveland on Saturday

This past weekend the Indians dropped two of three to the Twins in a series they had to have. They still have a couple of weeks to make up the four and a half games by which they trail Minnesota — and they still have a shot at passing either the Rays and/or the A’s and snagging the Wild Card — but they have an uphill climb compared to their competitors.

Perhaps that stressful state of affairs explains what happened in the stands during the second game of Saturday night’s doubleheader. Perhaps that is why the gentlemen in question engaged in fisticuffs, with one man literally dropping the damn People’s Elbow from one row down onto his opponent in the row below. Perhaps that is why the same man, moments later, made the ill-advised decision to continue to engage his larger and apparently more physically formidable adversary rather than remove himself from the situation despite having ceded the high ground.

Just be glad they weren’t offering ten-cent beer again…..

Trevor Bauer: ‘I don’t really miss a whole lot about Cleveland’

Reds starter Trevor Bauer has struggled in four starts with the Reds since the Indians dealt him on July 31. Entering Sunday, the right-hander allowed 16 runs (15 earned) on 23 hits and eight walks with 30 strikeouts in 23 innings. That’s an ugly 5.87 ERA.

Nevertheless, Bauer says he’s happier in Cincinnati than he was in Cleveland. Via FOX Sports Ohio, Bauer said, “It was very easy coming in. Everyone did a really good job being accommodating, making it easy for me to make the transition. The information is great here, the coaching staff is great here, and overall I’m a lot happier here than I was. Sometimes you don’t realize how unhappy you are in a situation until you’re out of it. Just kind of the day-to-day life. I miss some of my teammates and stuff, but overall I don’t really miss a whole lot about Cleveland.”

In his final start with the Indians, Bauer struggled immensely against the lowly Royals. As manager Terry Francona came to the mound to remove him from the game, Bauer angrily hurled the baseball from the mound all the way over the fence in center field. Francona was not happy about it. Bauer was fined a couple days later, then the Indians traded him the next day.

But Cleveland leads the nation in drifters, while all Cincinnati leads the nation in is chili that resembles spaghetti sauce!
