The Cleveland Indians have lost their last 8 games in a row.
Even worse than that, they have lost 21 of their last 25 games.
Yes, that’s 4-21 in their last 25 games. (They are also 9-29 in their last 38 games.)
It’s safe to say that the Tribe sucks at this given time and has for a while as well.
The Yankees will now play Cleveland for three games – with CC Sabathia facing Corey Kluber, Hiroki Kuroda going against Justin Masterson and Freddy Garcia squaring off with Ubaldo Jimenez.
If New York does not win at least two of these three games, then they should be embarrassed. This is a lay-up, an empty net shot on goal, a bar date with a hot alcoholic recent divorcee who suffers from self-esteem problems. Or, in other words, Yankees, don’t screw this up.
