The Indians and Tigers are Acting Like a Gay Couple (Not That There’s Anything Wrong with That)

This AL Central “race” has shades of the tortoise vs. the tortoise. In their last 22 games, the Indians and Tigers are 10-14 and 8-16, respectively. It has gotten so bad that the Twins are only 7 games back and the Yankees and Mariners are tied for the lead in the Wild Card, with the Indians trailing by 1.5 games. In fact, the Tigers have won only 5 of their last 17 and the Indians just got swept by the Yankees in Cleveland. I can just imagine Eric Wedge and Jim Leyland, at Baskin Robbins, sitting on the same side of a four-person booth with a hot fudge brownie sundae:

Wedge: You can take the first bite
Leyland: No, you take it!
Wedge: No, no, no. I want you to have it!
Leyland: (giggling) Okay, fine! (takes a puff from his cigarette, then takes a bite)

Tuesday the 14th, the Tigers will be going to Cleveland for an infamous two game series that is sure to be a split, with blown saves by Joe Borowski and Todd Jones on the horizon. And people make fun of the NL.
