Final meeting for these teams in 2018
Hard to believe that we aren’t even through April and it will be the last time these teams face each other. Indians radio voice Tom Hamilton has expressed over and over how the MLB schedule makers royally messed things up for the Tribe.
Nonetheless, it’ll be nice not to have to travel out to Seattle again for another 10 pm start. The Mariners currently lead this series 2-1, and this four-game series will decide the final on the season for these two teams.
Worse/Best case scenario
Worst case: 2-2 tie- I feel like I may be going out on a limb with as inconsistent as the Tribe offense has been. But they seem to have found a bit of a rhythm, and the pitching has been absolutely stellar. So in the worse case the Indians may give another hard-luck loss to a pitcher who has a great performance, and then Josh Tomlin happens.
Best case: 3-1 series win- As stated, the Indians rotation has been incredible. Arguably the best in baseball except for Tomlin. There is always the chance Tomlin comes around and pitches as he did in the second half last year, but he just hasn’t shown that yet in 2018.
