Toronto is down 2-0 in the series. Cleveland is showing no signs of slowing down. Last night, Josh Tomlin had his disgusting curve ball on full display, striking out 6 over 5 2/3 innings.
Tomorrow the series moves to Toronto, and we should expect to see the Jays come alive one of these nights. Still thinking Cleveland closes it out in Toronto. Sorry Blue Jays fans. If you want to win, try harder.
Cleveland and Toronto open in a just a few hours. Based on my completely bogus method above, which allowed me to go 4-2 predicting the winners thus far, I’m going to go with Cleveland as the winner.
Both teams have solid pitching, but I’m giving the edge on the bullpen to the Indians. They only played four times in 2016, and they split. Looking at the vs. stats is kind of pointless because one of those games was a 17 to 1 ass kicking with the Tribe taking the business end of that sodomizing.
Toronto does not have the patience that Cleveland has displayed. No one in the league had more walk off wins in 2016 than Cleveland, and no team pissed me off more this year than Cleveland. Last year, Toronto gave me that feeling all season, and once the Royals beat them, I knew they would win everything. I feel that way this year about this series. I just have a feeling that whoever comes out of here is going to win, and because they’ve had luck on their side, they’ve shown resilience and restraint all season, and their pitching has a slight edge, Cleveland will be the AL Champs in short order. In fact, I’ll be surprised if it takes them more than five games.
Ultimately, I just want more games like we’ve had. This has been an incredible post season all ready, and I can’t wait to see more drama, more clutch hits and more late inning heroics. I LOVE BASEBALL!!!! FUCK THE CUBS!!!!
I predicted earlier today that Boston would win in five, and I’m pretty confident they will.
Cleveland is a really awesome team this year and I hate them with a giant red hot passion but I won’t have to worry about them long. The wrinkle in this series is pitching, specifically bullpen. But I gotta’ root for Papi and I really want the Cubs to get beat in the Series by the Sox. So much irony and poetic justice.
Hear that Chicago? Suck it.
