    I like their chances with Kluber on the hill.

    With a win tonight, they would tie the 2002 "Moneyball" Oakland A's.

    Yes if they are going to win a game you would think it would be Kluber. Well outside of Game 7 on 3 days rest

    Read a stat today that they have hit more HR's in this 19 game winning streak than total runs by the opposition. That's pretty incredible

    I feel like so many of the games that the Marlins have lost recently have been in the last at bat. Just sickening.

    But congrats to Cleveland on their good run. Still you have to worry about them peaking too soon. Guess we'll find out in three weeks...

    Guess they haven't lost yet - got a notification half an hour ago that they did! My statement still stands - too many walk off losses lately it feels like!

    Two bullshit infield singles. Not Jansen's fault.

    I kind of assume that the Dodgers and Indians streaks would end on the same night. Guess I was wrong.

    Glad to see Mitch Kramer/issac Hanson is pitching for the Indians today vs Tomlin. Think it ends though today or tomorrow. I am worried about them peaking too soon but once its over, they will rest some players so it maybe that will help combat that. Kluber probably locked up Cy Young last night.

    20 in a row in baseball is an amazing achievement. The last team to do it was the 2002 Oakland A's. That team got knocked out in the first round of the playoffs by the Twins, and the Angels (who were the AL Wild Card) ended up winning the World Series. Baseball is a crazy and unpredictable game.

    Yes it means absolutely nothing but a footnote in baseball. I mean ok if they would win the Series with this, it means probably a bit more. If they don't, its just a stat that people will bring up when teams win maybe 15 or 16 in a row.

    True. The important thing is that the Tribe now has the best record in the Al and they're only 4 games behind the Dodgers for the best record overall.

    stuff like that mattered more back when there were no divisions and you won your league, you went to the world series. Still an impressive achievement, no matter how you slice it, though.

    However I have a pretty good feeling Tomlin and his starter mullet is going to end it tomorrow.

    Yeah, Tomlin is probably the weakest of the Indians starting pitcher group this year. Kluber, Carrasco, Bauer, Salazar and Clevinger are all ahead of him.

    Tomlin just doesn't get the strikeouts, huge drop off from the other Indians pitchers. He gets hit hard at times since he can't miss bats.

    BUT..... If Cleveland hitters score over 5 runs for him like they have done several times this year...... he can get the WIN. He just needs to eat innings and get it to the Pen.
