Game Thread: Indians to battle Royals for sovereign control of Missouri

New, comments

I read it somewhere these are 100% the real stakes

MLB: Cleveland Indians at Toronto Blue Jays Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

Roberto Perez is catching Corey Kluber for only the 2nd time this season. Has Tito noticed that Perez is twice the hitter Yan Gomes is these days? Maybe. I’m just looking forward to Kluber giving up like four runs and having people crawl out of the woodwork to say, “SEE THE CATCHER IS LITERALLY EVERYTHING YOU CAN’T JUST JUGGLE THEM AROUND LIKE HOT POTATOES.”

Anyway.
