Only 3 of the games have been by one run.

9 of the games have been "blowouts" (winning by 5+ runs).

6 times they've scored double-digit runs.

6 times they've thrown shutouts.

They've done fantastic once they got past the part of their schedule where they were facing Doug Fister every week.

Kluber vs. Matt Boyd tonight. Tigers may show up, may just stay at hotel.

Indians' 19-game winning streak, by the numbers:

Hitting: .309/.388/.563
HR: 38
ERA: 1.68
K-to-BB: 5.15-to-1

38 HR and 32 runs allowed.

They haven't needed any dramatic comebacks. By a quick count, their starters have gotten the win in 17 of the games. In one of the other two, they never trailed and, in the other, they didn't trail after the second inning.

Wow - talk about a season of Big Stories.

1. Aaron Judge during the 1st half - unstoppable, the new face of baseball ! Hmmm
2. The Dodgers! Possibly the best team ever ! Hmmm
3. Chris Sale! The Cy Young is yours ! Hmmm
4. The Home Runs! The Home Runs! Is the ball juiced ?
5. Stanton on a pace for 60 home runs ! Or is he?
6. What happened to Aaron Judge?
7. What happened to the Dodgers?
8. The Tribe! 19 and counting! Book a ticket to the World Series, baby
999. Seligula enter the Hall of Fame

What a season of stories .. is really good. So what'd I miss?

8. The Tribe! 19 and counting! Book a ticket to the World Series, baby

9. Tribe wins 111 games in wake of the ALCS, and then gets swept by the Giants Rockies in the World Series. Cries of "small sample size" are heard all along Lake Erie's shores, as the #1 hit song "Sh-Boom" echoes off Municipal Stadium's walls.

#7: Sorry, off to comedy school with you! It should be:

666. Seligula enters the Hall of Fame.
