Sort of weird to see a lineup with nine guys who all feel like actual MLB players.

The Indians are all but finished, but if they can somehow end the season on a 5-0 run, they've got a chance. Is that likely? No, but they finished 10-0 last season, so of course it's possible. A five-game winning streak starts with a single victory, and hopefully the Tribe will get exactly that this evening. If nothing else, I'd enjoy ruining KC's season.
