Where the elite meet for one to get beat.

Cleveland Indians v Minnesota Twins

Time: 7:10 Central. Vegas Line: -148 CLE / +138 MIN

Weather: Perfect, if one likes being outdoors

Opponent’s annoying SB site here. They don’t allow cuss words. Oh, fuck the shit off.

TV: FSN. Radio: StiIl isn’t the Cleveland SB site

You don’t need to know how important this weekend series is or who the pitchers are.

So, instead, let’s focus on this amazing story from SI about the entire family who dig up mud to rough up baseballs.

Three going on four generations of family members who hide the secret mud spot as a matter of rule; you don’t even tell it to your kids or spouse. MLB wants to replace it, and they can’t replace it. Because nobody can replace the magic mud.

Read that story, folks. It will absolutely confuse and delight you, this I promise.
