Heading into Friday’s action the Indians are the hottest team in baseball.
They can’t be this good can they? For the Indians it is all about pitching and this series will test just how good those arms are.
Even missing Jose Bautista the Jays are one of the better offensive clubs in the league and they have been heating up through June.
Though the lineup does not get a lot of pub the Indians are 7th in runs thus far. That may not be a shock for a team winning the way they are but it is a surprise to me that they are in the upper half in all offensive categories, including homers.
I really do think they can be even better too as it is not like Jason Kipnis or Carlos Santana is lighting it up. BTW Francisco Lindor is awesome.
Josh Tomlin is not going to scare opponents but he has the best winning percentage on the staff thanks to an insane strikeout to walk rate.
When you are pitching with few runners on base and are backed by a good defense you don’t have to have the nastiest stuff on the planet.
As good as Cleveland has been playing they are definitely going to be in the market for bullpen help. This group has been good but they are not elite.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays took their final two games at Colorado to start the week and will be hosting red hot Cleveland this weekend. Hopefully it will get their attention as this club seems to fade in and out with intensity.
The bats have come alive of late with Josh Donaldson and Edwin Encarnacion leading the way.
They are going to have to do some damage in this series to slow down Cleveland.
Overall the Jays have gotten strong starting pitching but Marcus Stroman has been in a big time funk after a good start. He might have started on opening day but his performance has essentially made him their fifth starter.
His numbers have been especially bad at home. I am not sure if there is any one thing that is wrong other than that he is getting hit a lot. All other indicators seems fine.
The Jays bullpen has been Jekyll and Hyde all season long so be careful.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
Cleveland is the hottest team in baseball and their recent run has made them the fourth most profitable team of the season. There is every reason to like them in almost any game with their starting pitching. Including this one.
The Jays may be at home but with the Indians coming to town there could be some really good value on them and even some underdog opportunities. I expect this one will fall into that category and it has me pretty excited.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Toronto ML
This series will be a nice test for Cleveland. My hunch is that they are going to get knocked down a peg. In their recent run of success they haven’t exactly been dominating contenders.
Nice face opportunity here.
