Not to take anything away from the Tribe fans who made it to Turner but crowds there have been pretty sparse. It's not too hard for the visiting teams fans to be heard. I saw tickets for the series available on StubHub for $6, yikes!

Edit: That guy in the red shirt REALLY needs to fix his shorts.

Looking ahead to Toronto... I expect the winning streak to end north of the border. I can see the Tribe splitting the series 2-2 with the Jays. That's not so bad considering Toronto is better than the previous four teams the Indians have swept. Also, a 2-2 split would give Cleveland an 8-2 road trip, which is excellent.

The Tigers won at home against Miami.
Minnesota will likely lose at the Chi Sox.
Hopefully the Cards will drop the Royals but that one is knotted at 0 in the 7th.

I was talking with my mom a couple days ago about the Brexit. She said she was going to ignore her 401k for a few days, haha.

Looking around the AL Central...

Tigers will likely beat the Marlins at home.
Minnesota will likely win at Chicago (AL).
Royals will likely lose at home to St. Louis.

Looks like the lead will increase to 6!

Excellent 9th inning for the offense. Great to see Santana and Lindor step up in a tight situation.

I remember going to Draegers when I was a kid. They closed a few years after I moved to Virginia. The Draeger family actually opened up a small shop in Chagrin Falls where they sell their fudge. You can order it online and they ship all over the country.

992, we took our naps before the Tribe game. The plaza had long since emptied out from the parade.

I traveled up from VA (McLean) the day before the parade. My dad lives in Shaker, so I could hop on the Blue Line quite easily to get downtown.

As of yesterday, the Indians are second in MLB with a +86 run differential. The Cubs are first with a ridiculous +158 differential.

992, we were over at the mall to see the speeches. Those speeches ended sometime around 5 and with RTA being shut down, we decided to walk the 5 blocks from Tower City to the Jake. It was fairly relaxing during the wait. My dad and I took turns napping on the grass area of the plaza between the stadiums before the gates opened around 6.

Notable home & homes for us starting in 2016:

Oklahoma (16 away/17 home)
Texas (22 away/23 home)
TCU (18 away/19 home)
Notre Dame (22 home/23 away)
Oregon (20 away/21 home)
BC (23 home, 24 away)

2023 will be a fun OOC year. BC & Texas at home and ND on the road.

CWRU, I was very surprised the Indians didn't sell out the day of the parade. My dad and I left the parade slightly early to avoid the mob of people moving toward Tower City. When we got there, the cops already had the place shut down, so we went over to the Jake (I will not call it Progressive Field). The Indians were running a $16 ticket special which we took immediately, figuring the crowds would be coming right behind us. The box office lines were never more than 20 people deep and I don't think attendance was anything over 25k. Needless to say, my dad and I had plenty of room to spread out.

I understand the fans problem with the Dolans and their tightness with money but they need to realize that they have a winning baseball team right now. If I lived in Cleveland, I would try to make at least one game a week. The Indians are coming to DC for the first time in 10 years and I've had my tickets lined up for a couple months now. The Indians have most of their key pieces under control for the next 2-3 years but sometime after that, those guys will be traded for prospects and we'll fall back down for a few years. People need to buy-in now while the iron is hot.
