Playing the White Sox won't hurt either. The Tribe has the easiest remaining schedule in the AL. At the moment they only have one series remaining with a team who has a winning record and that would be the Twins. They should have an opportunity to overtake Houston.
Now, that I did not know. Quiz is correct, Baltimore is just above .500, at 70-68 We're getting players back off the DL and getting healthy again, at just the right time. Their recent play, has put us in a strong position to gain home field advantage. It would be great to see them at full strength, going into the playoffs and with Carrasco this time.

The Astros have a pretty tough remaining schedule Seattle-3, Angels-6, Red Sox-4, Rangers-3, A's-4, White Sox-3. So, maybe the Tribe has a good chance at #1 in the AL. At least we hopefully have home field against the Red Sox or Yankees (which was huge last year).
The Indians beat up on chump teams, which they have to do to succeed. Now the real test begins against quality ballclubs. Frankly, don't see the Tribe finishing anymore that one or two games above .500 when it is all said and done. just way too inconsistent hitting. Pitching is fine, bullpen is good, but hitting consistently is atrocious.
The above post never left my thoughts, with this historic run by the Tribe.
Try.......31 games over .500 and best record in the American league?
All eyes of baseball are on these Indians!
What special times we are experiencing, what a great time to be a Tribe fan!

As BellevueBuckeye mentioned earlier Universal Windows did have a promotion with the Indians however they didn't lose a bundle.As a matter of fact they are laughing all the way to the bank.I read they had a 75k insurance policy that paid out over 1.8 million in work. Next year when they run the same promo(I assume they will)they'll sell twice as many windows and face it the odds will be long the Tribe could do it again. Great marketing move.
