Yesterday, the Cleveland Indians did not play baseball, which means it was next to impossible for them to lose by 1 run yet again.  Today starts a new home stand, so hopefully the Tribe can turn around their recent string of losses.  The Detroit Tigers are in town starting today, which, depending on how you look at it, can be a good thing or a bad thing.  Regardless, let's get to the news!
