Cleveland Indians vs. New York Yankees

July 10, 2016, 1:10pm ET. Progressive Field

Television: STO,

Radio: WTAM



The Indians play their final game before the All-Star break. This gives them one last chance to think of what they'll say to the families they've barely seen since March.

Yesterday Tom Hallion said that a base runner needs to do everything in his power to avoid the fielder. This is interesting, since most fans agree that Umpires should do everything in their power to avoid ruining the game.

Our starting pitcher against the Yankees is Carlos Carrasco. Will today be the day that he finally reveals himself as Yangarlo Rodriguez?

The San Francisco Giants now hold the best record in all of baseball at 56-33. Since it's an even-numbered year shouldn't we just call it now?

THIS is the Let's Go Tribe Game Thread.

Last night's loss hurts the heart a little bit. The Indians, by my count, had exactly eight chances to win the game, but could not convert. They'll try to split the series against the Yankees today to notch their 53rd win before taking time off for the All-Star break. If the Indians lose today, this will be the first series they've lost since June 15th.
