Cleveland Indians projected to have the easiest schedule in the AL

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Cleveland Indians Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Famed Internet Nerd Website Fangraphs has projected how easy (and hard, for some) every MLB team’s schedule will be this year, and the Indians are the lucky ones of the American League, having a schedule “5.5 wins” easier than the toughest, Texas. The Twins also benefit from having the White Sox, Royals and Tigers around, projecting to have the 2nd easiest in the AL.

Still gotta play the games though, obviously.

Playing games is not something the Indians did yesterday, but Jordan Bastian still found things to answer questions about in his mailbag.
