    He's just lurking in the pack with his 1.45 ERA for the finishing kick in the stretch run late August & September.:nod:

    Well, he definitely has an advantage this year because he won't face the Indians' hitters.

    Hey @VikingFan2k2, you up for another bet on this weekend's series?

    Depending on the outcome of today's Tribe/WSox game, I might not be able to start payment if I lose until 6/27, but you know I'm good for it.

    Yes. It's been bad. I try to get an avi bet for every series because I laugh when I make another person sport an "I love peckers" avi, but it hasn't been working out so well as of late.

    I think I lost avi bets in four or five straight series. Folks have decidedly NOT been loving peckers.

    No chance this time. 3 first inning runs the last 2 games 0 runs in innings 2-9.

    Absolutely pathetic offensive performances and you get Kluber and I don't get Berrios. If we don't get swept, it will be a miracle.

    That's what you said last time. It's just an avi bet.

    You're not going to give me a shot at some payback?

    Come on. You know you love peckers. Er, I mean, you know you want to take the avi bet. . .

    I'll let you have the next series bet after this one no matter what. I just can't do it, because this is going to be my team in a body bag come Monday.

    Alright, @craigk217, time to review the results...

    Game 1 - CLE (W): 4 / CHW (L): 0
    Game 2 - CLE (L): 1 / CHW (W): 5
    Game 3 - CLE (L): 2 / CHW (W): 3
    Game 4 - CLE (W): 5 / CHW (L): 2

    The series was a split, so per the rules of engagement, we go to total runs for the tie breaker.

    CLE: 12
    CHW: 10

    I win, you lose, and it's time to pay the piper. As I told you, my intention is to take it relatively easy on you because you took a tough bet AND, you accepted it after your team was already down a game. Big ups to you for that - you're a good sport. However, relatively is a very important word in that sentence.

    When considering this relativity, it's crucial to remember that past losers have publicly professed their love for all types of nasty peckers, including uncut, veiny, slightly crooked, and even malformed peckers. Compared to those, this is a piece of cake. Pecker shaped cake.

    Without further ado:

    Wear it with pride, my good-sporty friend.

    The thing you forgot to look at is neither Kluber nor Carrasco are softy tossing lefties that throw pussy 70 mph breaking balls.

    That’s the bread and butter to mowing the twins down lol
