Aug 25 2016SCOREBOARD WATCHING
Thursday night may not be a good one for the Indians, as they open a 4-game series in Texas. Josh "Homerun" Tomlin is facing Cy Young candidate Cole Hamels. Okay let's chalk that up as a loss, but what does it all mean. The Tribe is 5 1/2 games in front of Detroit, which goes to Boston this weekend. Cleveland has series left with Miami and Houston, then most of the rest is in the Central Division. My conclusion? Don't worry. Five and a half games is a pretty big lead with 37 games left, and the Tigers can't win 'em all. Detroit and KC play seven more, the Tigers play the Indians six more times. If the Tribe wins two of those, Detroit only gains two games in the standings. See? Don't worry. But I know you will anyway.
