Nick Swisher in right field alert! Nick Swisher in right field alert! Nick Swisher in right field alert!


With Swisher, Aviles, and Raburn in the outfield, I'm praying for nothing but strikeouts and grounders. I guess a couple easy pop flies would be okay, but I'd rather not take my chances.


This is the Tribe's first trip to Minnesota this season (except for Michael Brantley and Terry Francona who were there just last week for the All-Star Game), and the two teams still have 12 games against one another, which is theoretically good news for the Indians.
