The Tigers are down 11-0 already and yup this one is over

Barring a miraculous comeback, the Indians will clinch their third straight AL Central crown. The Detroit Tigers and Cleveland Indians started their game at 3:10 p.m. on Saturday afternoon. I’m writing this roughly one hour after that, and can already say that the Indians have won, clinching their third straight AL Central crown. Let’s recount all of the bad things that got us here: Jeimer Candelario led off the game with a walk... and was promptly picked off first base. Michael Fulmer gave up two solo home runs to Francisco Lindor and Michael Brantley in the bottom of the first to...

Watch Spencer Turnbull notch his 1st career strikeout

Turnbull racked up his first strikeout with a 96 mph heater past Yan Gomes. Since MLB.com is being generous with their embeddable content this morning, let’s also check out Spencer Turnbull’s first big league strikeout. Turnbull tossed a 1-2-3 inning against the Indians on Friday with a pair of groundouts, and this dusting of Yan Gomes.

Could Adalberto Mondesi be the next Francisco Lindor?

Could Adalberto Mondesi be the next Francisco Lindor?

The kid has some upside. Hype, man. In the world of baseball, prospects are all the rage. Before one of these highly touted youngsters even step onto a major league field they are pumped up for what they “could be”. The hype is real and always appears to foreshadow their “ceiling” of what might be on the horizon. But we all know the hype sometimes has nothing to do with reality. The reality can be a real downer, a window into mediocrity that could be stamped on them forever. The hype can be just as much a detriment as a saving grace for these players hoping to be the future of the...

Red Sox 7, Indians 0: David Price shines, Sox ride huge fifth to 90th win

No one else has 80. Also, Blake Swihart is good now. The first half of this game went fast and no one could do much. The second half was... different. You see the score in the headline. Here’s how it happened: Top of the first David Price started the game by getting Francisco Lindor to line out to right. Yandy Diaz fouled off a ball Mitch Moreland couldn’t quite reach near the stands, then grounded out to short. Jose Ramirez ran the count full before watching a perfect strike three on the inside corner. Price was dealing! Bottom of the first Leading MVP candidate Mookie Betts led off...
