Indians Wednesday GameThread: Kluber targets Noesi in a South Side showdown

The Rubix Klube hates white undergarments. Also Chicago.

It's true. I'm responsible for all the socks you lose in the laundry.

Can the Indians make it to five games over .500? There's no disputing that Corey Kluber gives them the best shot of any Tribe starter. The rest depends on the offense, which hopefully isn't burnt out from yesterday's 8-run outburst. Fortunately, Mike Aviles isn't in the starting lineup today, but Terry Francona will have plenty of opportunities to bunt with Chris Dickerson penciled in as the starting RF.

Let's Go Tribe!
