Anything can happen, but tonight's lineup doesn't exactly make me swoon.
In case you missed it, Jason Kipnis has been placed on the DL, and could be out for a month. Jose Ramirez has been called up to fill his spot on the roster. But for tonight at least, Elliot Johnson will take over as the start at second base. With the Tribe facing a southpaw, Lonnie Chisenhall is out of the lineup, with Mike Aviles at third base and batting second (good grief).
Hopefully Danny Salazar can pitch as well as he did last year, and hopefully the lineup can provide enough help to pull out a much-needed victory.
