Why the Tribe Could Land in the Postseason
CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cleveland is three games out of first place in the American League Central Division, one game out of the wild card spot, but the Indians could be in the driver’s seat to land in the postseason.
The Indians start the second half of the MLB season on Friday in Toronto. It will be the start of the easiest schedule in the American League for the second half of the season as broken down by ESPN.com. 36 of the Indians’ final 77 games are at home. They play 33 games against teams with records over .500. They have seven games left against New York and Boston and the Indians finish the season with four series against the Royals and White Sox.
If the Tribe can land a right hand bat before the trade deadline, things could really get interesting on the North Coast.
