Detroit Tigers at Cleveland Indians

And here we are. After this weekend the Indians could have the AL Central all but sewn up, or we could be panicking on Monday. Both clubs are sending their top three starters to the hill this weekend, so this series will be played like a reasonable facsimile of a playoff series, with the only difference being that the Indians have a 6-0 lead, and both teams will go on to play other teams next week.


....


Ok, it's not really a playoff series, but it is a very important series to both clubs. You should watch it and post comments.
