Where: Comerica Park

How: TV - STO; radio - WTAM


Today might be the least important game of the season. The Tribe has clinched a division title and while the fight for homefield advantage is still very much in play, the starters have earned a day off. I'm pretty sure all of them are hungover anyway, and that's well reflected in this lineup. The Indians send out eight warm bodies plus Carlos Santana while Detroit fights for their life toward a potential Wild Card spot. Ain't baseball grand?
