Who knew Carlos Carrasco would morph into perhaps our second most reliable starter this year, but I'm glad it happened. Today, Carlos faces his biggest test of the season and perhaps his career. Not only is the Tribe kicking off a make-or-break three-game set against Detroit, but they're up against former Cy Young winner David Price. The Indians' fate is in their own hands. Let's do this, Cookie.
