I can't believe they're playing baseball in Detroit before the month of May is over.

It was 4%. Prior to the season starting, they were projected to finish with 68 wins. Now, they are projected to finish with 73 wins. They won’t make the playoffs if they finish with 68-73 wins, though.

Indians just got dealt a major blow with the injury to Mike Clevinger.  I have no idea what happened all I saw was a tweet on twitter saying Francona said "It will be 6-8 weeks before he even thinks of throwing a baseball again."

So you're saying there's a chance?

Why is Mahtook in the lineup?  Kluber will chew him up and spit him out.

Surprised to see him starting as well. As anemic as this offense is...

But what has mathematization of everything given us? 

Algorithms that pry into and manipulate our innermost desires.

A classroom experience many find frustrating.

Robot armies roaming our streets looking for human prey.

All because human beings were born with 10 digits they could count which by some fluke corresponds with the mathematical construction of the universe.

If we’d been born with nine digits we’d still be scratching ourselves and plucking ticks from each other’s pelts and we’d be happy.

It probably just went up a couple of points on the Clevinger news.

He strained a muscle in his upper back.  He wanted to keep pitching, but the Indians didn't want to take chances.
