Cleveland Indians: Catching the Twins at Just the Right Time?


The Indians Wildest Comeback Win Ever

The Cleveland Indians might be running into the Minnesota twins at just the right time. The common thought was that the Twins would “fall back to the pack” in the AL Central. They have on the heels of a five-game losing streak. Last night’s loss leaves the Kansas City Royals as the only team above .500 in the division. This is the same division that was supposed to be the strongest in baseball, right?

The ‘steroid era’ continues to be a hot-button topic among fans and baseball writers. will the Hall of Fame ever open their doors to those that used–or were suspected of using–PED’s? Are there some players who may already be in there that did? We believe it’s time for the HOF to open its doors, and former Indians’ slugger Manny Ramirez would be a great place to start.

The New York Yankees have defied the odds this season, keeping themselves right in the thick of the playoff hunt–leading the AL East actually. After making no moves at the deadline, many wondered if they could sustain the drive. After not getting much help from former Tribe hurler C.C. Sabathia, he turned the corner and put in his best start in quite some time. How much better are the Yankees when he’s good?

And Deadspin takes a look back at one of the wildest comebacks in baseball history. Where were you when the Tribe battled back against an unseemingly unbeatable Seattle Mariners team in 2001?
