CLEVELAND! THIS IS THE MOMENT WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR! Mike Clevinger is set to take the mound on Monday, June 17, at 8:05 p.m. Folks, I cannot tell you how excited I am right now. This is giant news. The Indians have not only turned around their season and have been trending upward exponentially, but now we’re getting back our potential Ace and Cy Young award candidate? Holy. Moly.
Clevinger, who dominated in his AA Akron wrap-up game yesterday, pitching 67 pitches with 51 of them being strikes, is finally coming back. This means one thing ladies and gentlemen: Wins are coming to Cleveland. Is that a complete game shut out I smell? YUP! Is that another series win for the Tribe? YUP! Is that an AL Central lead and a playoff clinch I smell? YUP!
Get ready folks because it’s about to be a fun summer once more in Cleveland. I’ve said it many times and many people called me a fool, but this team is GOOD! They have been playing in their own heads and have finally woken up. For those that have jumped ship, I will gladly allow you back onto the wagon, as long as you apologize and say that you were wrong and not being a good fan. It’s okay, we love each other here in Cleveland, but humility is key.
