Even Klubot is getting dismantled these days, so we must turn our hopes to the Harbinger. Trevor Bauer finally makes the start delayed by days because of a nasty case of food poisoning. Can he carry the load for a Tribe team that looks increasingly listless in all aspects of the game? He'll face off against L(N)GFT Jeremy Guthrie, one of the many that got away before turning into a productive major leaguer.

Today's Lineups

KANSAS CITY ROYALS CLEVELAND INDIANS
Alcides Escobar - SS Jason Kipnis - 2B
Mike Moustakas - 3B Jose Ramirez - SS
Lorenzo Cain - CF Michael Brantley - LF
Eric Hosmer - 1B Carlos Santana - 1B
Kendrys Morales - DH Brandon Moss - RF
Alex Gordon - LF David Murphy - DH
Salvador Perez - C Lonnie Chisenhall - 3B
Omar Infante - 2B Brett Hayes - C
Jarrod Dyson - RF Michael Bourn - CF
Jeremy Guthrie - RHP Trevor Bauer - RHP

Today's pros and cons:

Pros
  • Bauer is good
  • Guthrie is not a lefty
  • Bourn is out of the leadoff spot again
  • It's a home game
Cons
  • Kipnis, along with most of the offense, is still struggling
  • Hayes over Perez won't help the struggling offense
  • Guthrie is pretty good despite not being a lefty
  • It's a home game

Well, what the hell. Here's to giving it all we've got. Let's Go Tribe!
