    The official Terry Pluto thread

    MLB it's made for us Boomer retirees. The only sport I know of that you can fall asleep for an hour and not miss anything. But it is a relaxing sport all 162 long games before the playoffs. ........edit add, and golf might be #2, a surefire cure for insomnia.
  5. I wouldn't go that far some no most are decent people like any demographic group of people. BUT like in any group there's always the rotten apples that give the whole bunch a rotten name. For every Hunt, OBJ, Garrett, ABrown and a few others there are many decent players out there. Cleveland just has attracted a few on this team, great players -but- in the headlines for the wrong reasons. Lack of team discipline has just fueled the fire.
  6. We had breaded flounder the other day, not as good as fresh catch but not too bad. Back to basics on GAMEDAY, tailgating or similar meals which is best or the most popular? Steaks, burgers, ribs, hotdogs, chicken, chili, pizza, tacos, fish, chips & dip or anything really delicious. Well I checked around for a few ideas, here's a few I found. Best tailgating food ranked by college students. 1. was dip and chips 10. was chili. https://spoonuniversity.com/lifestyle/best-tailgating-foods-ranked-college-students Food Network's top 50 Tailgating Recipes.

  9. From a link in the story after all of the work and surgery Clevinger was one of the lucky ones that finally made it to the big time. Mike Clevinger rhp 1 year/$4.1M (2020) 1 year/$4.1M (2020) re-signed by Cleveland 1/10/20 (avoided arbitration)\ 1 year/$592,200 (2019). <---- a bargain at that price ! re-signed by Cleveland 3/19 1 year/$558,500 (2018) re-signed by Cleveland 3/18 1 year (2017) re-signed by Cleveland 3/17 1 year (2016) contract selected by Cleveland 11/20/15 re-signed by Cleveland 3/16 acquired by Cleveland in trade from LA Angels 8/7/14 drafted by LA Angels 2011 (4-135) (Seminole State JC, Fla.) $250,000 signing bonus agent: BBI Sports ML service: 3.041
  10. BIG PRICE, LITTLE PAY. (from the article) Until a player reaches the Class AAA level, the money is embarrassingly low. Let’s look at Clevinger, who was a fourth-round pick by the Angels in 2011. His bonus was $250,000. That sounds good. Let’s say he cleared about $170,000 after taxes. Then reality hits: Welcome to the minors. Most players start at rookie ball, where the average salary is about $1,100 per month during the season. That’s about $5,500 for the year. The salaries rise a bit with each level. By the time a player is at Class AA, he makes about $12,000 a year. They often have off-season jobs. The Indians in 2011 had a pitcher named Josh Judy who finally made the Majors. For several winters, he worked at the Wal-Mart in Fairlawn, usually in electronics. Judy pitched 13 years of pro ball, including several seasons in Mexico and other foreign outputs. His Major League career consisted of 14 innings and a 7.07 ERA. He spent parts of five seasons in Class AAA. THE LONG CLIMB. (from the article) It took Clevinger five years, an elbow reconstruction surgery and a trade to Cleveland before he finally arrived at Class AAA. After five years in Class AA and lower levels while making less than $10,000, that $170,000 (after taxes) signing bonus was long gone. “I’ve been there,” said Clevinger. “I’ve had to live with my mom until I got to the big leagues. And now you’re telling me that someone could have potentially shorted my career or sent me back down because they knew what I was throwing when I was in their park?” Clevinger first reached the Major Leagues in 2016 with the Indians. He made three trips that season between Class AAA Columbus and Cleveland........ In 2017, he made three more trips up and down I-71 between Cleveland and Columbus before he finally stuck with the Tribe
  11. ASTROS Cheaters? How severe should the penalties be? Clevinger speaks out...... (from the browns forum) Let's shift gears abit with Terry Pluto, cheating in sports baseball style. https://www.cleveland.com/tribe/2020/01/like-mike-clevinger-many-mlb-players-should-be-angry-with-cheating-houston-astros.html Like Mike Clevinger, many MLB players should be angry with cheating Houston Astros  Posted Jan 21, 2020 By Terry Pluto, The Plain Dealer CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cleveland Indians pitcher Mike Clevinger’s rage about the Houston Astros cheating scandal was powerful because he spoke for the average-to-marginal player fighting to stay in the big leagues.  Clevinger unleashed his fury in a video for an online site named Momentum, a company connected with former Tribe pitcher (and Clevinger buddy) Trevor Bauer. Clevinger said batters knowing what pitches are coming is “worse than steroids." He could be right. Steroids can make players stronger, and not just hitters. Pitchers also used them to increase their velocity. Sometimes, baseball turned into a battle of chemists as “juiced" pitchers faced “chemically enhanced” hitters. But the Astros used video equipment and other means to steal signs from opposing pitchers and relay the information to the hitter, according to a recent MLB report. Good luck if you’re a pitcher....... continued in link......
  12. The Q1 o/u only 10 points even? Doesn't that sound to easy for the over or will the defenses control things? I've never bet a Q1 before but it sounds so easy.
