MLB: Chicago White Sox at Cleveland Indians David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

You may have noticed in prior games that the Cleveland Indians’ offense is in a bit of a rough patch. This particular rough patch is filled with thistle, acacia, bougainvillea, honey locust, and landsharks.

Random Fact: Contrary to popular belief, it is not illegal to die in Longyearbyen, Norway. It’s merely forbidden to be buried there, since the year-round cold stops bodies from decomposing. Because of this, researchers were able to gather samples of the 1917 influenza virus for further study. While this sounds like the beginning to a Stephen King book, the research was actually incredibly helpful in understanding the flu.

Also, C Cameron Rupp is now in the player pool? Okay.
