The good news for the Cleveland Indians---they're in first place in the American League Central. The bad news--they're struggling. After 42 games, they're just 21-21 and have the worst bullpen Earned Run Average (5.68) in all of baseball. The Indians have blown five run leads twice in the last week and over the last 20 games the bullpen is 1-7 with only one save, three blown saves and an ERA of 9.73.
With the Indians preparing to start a weekend series in Houston against the World Series Champion Astros, longtime Tribe play-by-play man Tom Hamilton joined "The Drive" on 105.7, the Zone Thursday. Hammy talked with Stan Jackson and me about the bullpen issues and more. As usual, it was an entertaining and informative interview. You can check it out here.
