The months of August and September are looking to be real harbingers.
The Tribe starts a six game stretch against div rivals CSox and Tigers Aug 16th thru Aug 21st
Very important stretch of away games there obviously.
Immediately following this they come home for a 10 game stretch , Seattle 4 games, KC 3 games, and Oakland 3 games. If they keep things close over over the next week, the division title could rest on how well they do during this up-coming 10 game home-stand against less than stellar opponents.
The Tigers last 10 games of august are in order 4 away games against the Rays, 3 against the Twins and 3 against the Royals.
In september we face the Tigers 6 more times including a 3 game set in Detroit that concludes the regular season. Things hopefully are settled in the Tribes favor before that series.
