BIG SERIES? OR NOT

Aug 20, 2018 -- 11:07am

    So the Indians and Red Sox meet four times this week in Boston.  On Monday it's two 15-game winners in Corey Kluber and Rick Porcello, who just happen to have won the last two Cy Young Awards.  But outside of the fact the Tribe is finally playing someone good, what does it all mean?  Good question.  If the Indians do well, they have sent a "message."  If the Red Sox dominate, it doesn't really matter "til October.  Both teams are good, both are cruising to division titles, and they can't meet until the ALCS anyway.  There's no Bauer and no Sale, both are on the DL.  And while Boston may win 115 games, they start the playoffs at 0-0 (see Mariners, Seattle, 2001).  So don't sweat it, these games are not big.  Unless the Indians win three or four.
