I think some of the CS% has to do with our pitching staff not doing as good a job at holding on runners as they did last year.
Except for Tomlin I think the pitching staff has regressed in this area.
Of course there is a "but". Marson's throws have not been as crisp as last year either.
I like Lou and want to see him on this team. Lou is making Acta think long and hard when making out the lineup card, good for him. In my opinion I think Kotchman and Hafner have more to fear from the emergence of Marson at the plate than Santana does.
Baseball has a way of working itself out with things like this, i would not be surprised at all if next year we see Santana at 1st or DH and we are shopping for another back up catcher. Assuming Marson stays consistent at the plate.
We shall see. Because Acta will keep putting him out there in the 4 spot everyday. We certainly can not change that. He will be doing this as long as he is here. Personaly I have seen enough of the long swing forever.
We shall see though and I will keep complaining.
This article is why Acta is such a joke of a manager!

Thats what I thought they should have done after the Houston series.
It would have given him about 3 weeks to work on his new swing in Akron or Columbus without the added pressure of having to produce at the same time.
Its one thing for them to know what needs fixed with his swing, but then trying to fix it while the guy is batting right in the middle of the lineup is another.
Uh oh, what??
Don't tell me it doesn't have anything to do with $$ (5yr,21mill.). They could send him down for a minor league stint or give him a week off or so to get his shet together! Read the article. First line 4th paragraph, it's about $$ as well. Your not going to pay a guy that kind of money and sit him or send him down, esp. if you are the indians front office.
