Regardless of the results of this season, it can't be said that the Tribe didn't make it interesting during these last few weeks. There are seven games left, so strap in and enjoy the ride.

Yesterday's game: Indians 7, Twins 2

The LGT staff is out of superlatives for Corey Kluber, but Kluber doesn't care. He's a robot. He just keeps getting better and better with no regard for human emotion. Klubot gonna Klubot.
