    I've been in Europe since Friday morning, and we have been blasted these past three games.

    Coincidence? I think not.

    Now that Wheeler has been cut can they finish the deal and have Krotchman join him.

    Indians Designate Dan Wheeler For Assignment
    By Steve Adams [May 13 at 3:42pm CST]
    The Indians have designated right-hander Dan Wheeler for assignment, according to MLB.com's Jordan Bastian (Twitter link). No corresponding roster move has been announced by the Tribe as of yet.

    Wheeler was tagged for six earned runs in an inning of work today, ballooning his ERA to 8.76 in 12 1/3 innings of work. The 34-year-old seemed to have lost the ability to miss bats this season, as he struck out only two hitters during that time. After walking just eight batters in all of 2011, he walked seven in his short Cleveland tenure and his average fastball dropped from 89.2mph to 88.3mph.

    Wheeler signed a one-year, minor league deal with the Indians this offseason and has appeared for the Astros, Rays, Mets, and Red Sox in his 13-year Major League career.

    Collapse will continue and the Indians will return to the irrelevancy I've been guaranteeing all year.

    Yeah hard not to see this as the beginning of the end for the Tribe's first-place hopes in 2012.

    with them sending Donald down and releasing Wheeler they are starting to get rid of some of the dead weight on the roster

    counting the days until Cunnigham is gone

    lets see whether they can start to address any needs with their replacements

    Good thing they spent all off-season training Donald how to play OF so he had an additional place for Acta to not play him.

    Wondering if there is some dissent between Acta / Antonetti. Seems Antonetti built a roster that had Marson, Duncan, Donald, Lopez ready to come in vs Lefties but Acta almost never used that to his advantage. Sending Donald down may have been just so he actually gets some playing time.

    Choo batting leadoff tonight with Damon getting the night off. The bottom of the lineup tonight will be Lopez, Kotchman and Duncan. YIKES

    He wasn't producing when he was being played. He actually has better numbers against righties this year.

    It just reminded me of Marte / LaPorta where they bring a guy up and play him once a week and then complain when he doesn't produce. On a team that desperately needed right-handed bats he should've played a few times a week. Kotchman has 45 PA vs lefties, Hannahan has 42. Donald has 49 PA TOTAL and only half were against lefties.

    Cleveland called up Jeremy Accardo who has a 2.76 ERA in 16 1/3 innings of relief and holding opponents to a .207 average. He's also 4 for 4 in save opportunities.

    Accardo was lights out in Spring Training , but they went with Wheeler based on past accomplishments

    waiting for them to cut the other player that didn't warrant a spot based on lack of performance - Cunningham
