Eh, the Indians didn't have home field for the '48 playoff game or World Series either... ;)

And your new avatar makes me think: "Your Goddamn right" every time I see it now... :lol:

You're Goddam right!

Well now they only need to play .500 ball to hit 100 wins. Remember the 100-44 and 99-62 (didn't play last make up game) teams? This team is close to those teams with kluber.

They still only have that game and a half on Houston...who is obviously keeping up some pace.

Also, in the wildcard races....in the AL, technically, only two teams have been mathematically eliminated:  White Sox and Tigers.  While in the NL 7 teams have been eliminated.

The best race in Baseball may in fact be for the final WC spot in the NL.   Colorado holds a 1 game lead on  Milwaukee. 

And only the AL East and the NL Central division title races are not settled......between the Yankees and Red Sox, and Cubs and Brewers.

The one-game playoff for WC is lame. 

Totally unless you're dead on tied, get rid of it! After 162 games really? MLB got this one wrong.

Should be 3 games.

Totally disagree, I like the play-in wild card game.

Gets more teams in contention longer into the season, and if you don't want to risk getting knocked out of the playoffs in one game, then win your division. The last thing I want is for the Indians to sit around all week waiting for the 3 game series to conclude.

Another typical start for Kluber today vs the M's could pretty much seal the deal for Cy Young #2 for him.

Kluber: 17-4, 2.35 ERA, 191.2 IP, 252 SO, 0.850 WHIP, 5 CG, 3 SHO

Sale: 17-7, 2.75 ERA, 209.1 IP, 300 SO, 0.946 WHIP, 1 CG, 0 SHO

The only thing Sale has going for him is a higher K/IP rate.

Might as well hand the Cy Young to Kluber now.

Won his 18th game today, and lowered his league-low ERA to 2.27 while adding another 10 strikeouts vs the Mariners.

Between the MLB, ESPY and other awards the Cleveland Indians should be well represented this year.....but winning in October is needed first.

Kluber just won the Cy Young award tonight, without hurling a pitch.

Sale gave up four homers.

Old MLB saying:

"You're going to win 40, lose 40 it's the middle 82 that decide how you do in a season."

The 2017 Cleveland Indians did very well, the 22 game win streak will live forever.

There are several including:

“No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference.” -Tommy Lasorda
