Let's Go Tribe!

Cleveland Indians @ Cincinnati Reds

Friday July 17 2015, 7:10 ET, Great American Ballpark

OK, technically speaking we had already started the 2nd half, but the All Star Break is always that vacation divider, so here we go!

Trevor Bauer will take to the hill, and the batter's box(!), for the Indians tonight against Mike Leake and the Cincinnati Reds. Leake will be batting 8th, perhaps in the NL lineup quirk way or perhaps because his career OPS is better than Billy Hamilton's 2015 OPS. Just, you know, without the rockets.

The Indians look to get the second half started out on the right foot as they have less than 2 weeks to formally decide if they're selling, buying or standing pat. Here's to hoping we're talking about potential additions in the next week and a half!
