Cleveland Indians at Chicago White Sox

Thursday, May 21, 2015, 8:10 PM, US Cellular Field


Radio: WTAM

The 2015 Cleveland Indians have a chance tonight to do something that they haven't done all year long - win three games in a row. We might be making mountains out of molehills here, but honestly, what else is the internet for? If you could couple three in a row with an impeding return to action by your Silver Slugging catcher, things just might be looking up!

Carlos Santana is back in the lineup tonight and, thankfully, batting 2nd. Jose Ramirez has looked better the last few days, but Carlos and his team high 30 walks (3rd on team in OBP) still belong in the second slot. I try not to get too wrapped up in lineup construction, but Carlos is a very natural fit for the 2 spot and it's good to see Tito put him right back there. Just as long as it doesn't mean more bunting for Jason Kipnis.
