I won’t get carried away explaining how fun it is seeing the Indians walk-off two games in a row, but these Indians are keeping fans on their toes. Even in the loss on Tuesday, the Indians had a chance to walk things off against the Twins. The Indians have played thirty games decided by one run. They are 15-15 in those games. Walk-offs haven’t really been the forte for this team given how bad their bullpen was for a while. Now that the bullpen has improved significantly, they stand a better chance in these one-run games.

Worse/Best case scenario

Worse case: 2-1 series win

Yeah, the worse case scenario this weekend is that the Indians don’t sweep the White Sox. Anything below that should be considered embarrassing. The Indians are far and away better than the Sox and now is their chance to prove it.

Best case: 3-0 series win

Seriously guys, just sweep the Sox and put them out of their misery.

Next. Indians waiver target: Brandon Nimmo. dark

This series is the start of a road trip that will also take the Indians to Cincinnati for their final National League matchup of the 2018 season. But they’ll have to take care of business this weekend first. It starts tonight at 8:10 PM EST.
