Clevelinks, August 6: Salazar Gets the Call


The Indians kicked off the first of four games they will play against the Tigers this week, but unfortunately things are not going as the Tribe hopeful would have planned. A 4-2 loss and a ninth inning implosion by closer Chris Perez aren’t the results many had hoped for heading into last night’s game. However, that wasn’t the only news to arise from this week’s series against the Motor City Kitties. Perhaps even bigger than last night’s loss was word that Ubaldo Jimenez would be skipped in the rotation in favor of Danny Salazar. Naturally, when this news broke the internet imploded upon itself and leads this edition of Clevelinks.

Manny Ramirez homers off of A’s closer Dennis Eckersley in the bottom of the 12th to give the Indians the sweep. Eckersley’s reaction is priceless. (refresh is player doesn’t load)
