The bad news is, the Indians are facing a lefty tonight, which tends to mean they won't do much. The good news is, the Indians aren't doing much against anyone right now, so maybe the starter being a southpaw doesn't matter. What's that you say? The good news doesn't actually sound so good? Um... tomorrow's Friday, so that's good news, right?

The Tribe rotation has a ton of talent with a world of questions swirling around it. Tonight we'll get another look at Carlos Carrasco, as we try to figure out if he's finally made adjustments that will allow him to be a successful starting pitcher. We still won't know after tonight, but we'll have a better idea. Maybe he'll solve Jose Abreu, which is something few players on the team have been able to do.
