Cleveland at Texas, 8:35 PM (STO)

Starting Pitchers:

Cleveland: Jake Westbrook (11-8, 4.27 ERA)
Texas: Vicente Padilla (13-8, 4.16 ERA)

One month to go, and the season's just started to get interesting. Nobody's been called up yet, mainly because most of the young players worth taking a look at are already here. After Buffalo's season ends on Sunday, I'd expect a couple more to get the call, including Kevin Kouzmanoff, Jeremy Guthrie, and Fausto Carmona.

Arlington has always seemed to give the Indians fits; it's a stadium where doubles turn into home runs way too easily. Hopefully Jake Westbrook's sinker is working tonight.
