The Indians knocked the Yankees out of 1st place when the two teams met last week. New York has climbed back on top of the AL East though, because the Blue Jays would apparently prefer the excitement of the Wild Card Game.

Very nice to have Kipnis and Brantley both back in the lineup. Meanwhile, anyone back in March who had the Tribe sporting an outfield of Jose Ramirez, Abraham Almonte, and Lonnie Chisenhall can report to the ticket window to collect their winnings.
