I had waited a little bit before posting because I believed the Indians would beat the Yankees in at least four games. I was then going to write about the Indians versus the Astros.
The big streak ended, but instead of slumping, the Indians have won four straight games. Now they are chasing the Dodgers for home field advantage for the entire post-season. A month ago this did not seem possible but here we are.
The Yankees are in town for a four game series which should tell a lot about the Indians and the rest of the season. The Tribe lost two games in Boston, one in spectacular fashion. Both Boston and New York are certain to be in the post-season and the Indians must show they are for real. They need to at the very worst split the series with the Yankees or take three out of four.
The 2017 All-Star game was not the most exciting, but it was great to see five Indians picked for the team. Jose Ramirez and Andrew Miller had their moments on the National Stage.
