Bullpen, bullpen, bullpen

*we didn’t start the fire voice*

Tyler Olson please come back

McAllister is still bad

Dan Otero holding on

Andrew Miller is still gone

Cody Allen saves the day

Josh Tomlin go away

Niel Ramirez got rocked

Oliver Perez still rocks!

This bullpen is on fire!

Worse/Best case scenario

Worse case: 1-2 series loss

The Indians are one of those teams that are finding trouble playing consistently from series to series. They’ll go from a sweep, to getting embarrassed by a third place, albeit good A’s team. Hopefully since they lost their last series they’ll turn around and take this one. But baseball isn’t about who you play, it’s when you play them. The Indians are playing the Reds at a time when they’re playing good baseball.

Best case: 2-1 series win

I don’t think the Indians can sweep this series. As I said, the Reds are playing better than their record would indicate. But the Indians are good enough to beat them and take two, the Reds may steal one at home but that’s not a big deal.

Next: Lonnie Chisenhall and some Tribe history

Thiis series will be played until Wednesday with every game at 7:10 PM EST. Let the battle for Ohio begin!
