Watch the young guys.

As I’ve mentioned a gazillion times recently, expect to see some of the Indians younger, lesser-known players used more. They’ll be facing a lefty on Tuesday’s game, meaning it’ll be an already different looking lineup. This period could have something close to a spring-training period. We’ll be seeing guys who may not start on the team in the next few years, but they have developmental potential.

Worse/Best case scenario

Worse case: 1-2 series loss

I’m not gonna get too worked up over this series, and neither should you. Sure, the Red Sox are coming to town after this series. But by then they may have clinched their division as well. The White Sox will be playing for pride, the Indians will just be playing.

Best case: 2-1 series win

If the Indians can take advantage of playing these lowly White Sox, it’ll feel pretty good, and it’ll help them inch closer to that 90-win mark. It would feel good to reach that mark, but it won’t make that much of a difference.

Next. Indians work far from done. dark

The reality is the Indians do have one thing to play for. They can maintain a lead over all of the NL teams, in order to get home-field advantage in the World Series should they make it. But that’s about it. This series kicks off tonight at 7:10 and continues at that time slot for the remainder of the week.
