Even if the Indians are out of contention, there are some individual performances worth watching and milestones worth tracking, and I would argue no one on the team is more worthy of your attention that tonight's starter, Corey Kluber. With the way his teammates having been swinging the bats and flashing the leather, he may need to be pretty close to perfect if he's going to pick up a W. Pretty close to perfect is something the Klubot is programmed for though.
