The Indians host Atlanta and Miami (nee Florida) on a very short homestand that begins Friday. OK, so? Well yeah, the games themselves are no big deal but...these are the two teams the Tribe lost to in epic World Series in the 90s. I'm old, so I remember. The Indians were the mega-power of 1995, in the World Series for the first time in 41 years. And they were hosed by the epically wide strike zone, giving the Braves their ONLY world title in the ATL. Two years later the Indians were underdogs against the Marlins, but were 2-2 with game five at home and Hershiser on the mound. And Orel gave up 14 RUNS. The Tribe would lose in the 11th in game seven. It matters not this weekend. But Gawd, I loved the 90s!
