Francisco Lindor Catches Fire, Indians Score in Bunches- Indians 11, Royals 2

If the Indians are to overcome their abysmal start from their bullpen, the offense os going to have to score early and often. Last years MVP candidates Jose Ramirez and Francisco Lindor are the crucial components in the line-up. As they go, the Indians go. Ramirez has been hitting well for a couple weeks now after a slow start, and in the last 7 games, Frankie has joined him. Hitting .519 with 5 home runs and 7 RBI’s, he has been locked in. He has also only struck out twice in that stretch, no small feat in today’s MLB. While he uncharacteristically also has 5 errors in the field, but that will go away over time. Mr. Smile looks to continue the hot streak with the Tribe heading out on a road trip to Detroit, Houston, and Chicago for the Cubs. The team should know a lot about where they stand after this trip.

Mother’s Day in Baseball is Always One of the Most Fun Days of the Year

One of the best days of the season is Mother’s Day. Not only does the league wear special hats and use special equipment, players are encouraged to pay tribute to the women in their life. Some of my favorites from this year:
