Today's Lineups

-

In case you missed it, Carlos Santana and Nick Swisher have both been placed on the disabled list.

I'll be honest, tonight's lineup does not inspire me to expect big things. I might feel differently if the Tribe had shown any ability to hit lefties this season, or if the lefty on the mound for Chicago tonight wasn't one of the very best southpaws in baseball. Sure, the Indians have hit well against Sale before, but I'm not convinced they have his number or anything.

Meanwhile, Lonnie Chisenhall, my choice for Indians Player of the Week, still isn't allowed to start against a lefty, with Francona preferring to have Sellers' bat in the lineup.

Let's hope Masterson is much more on his game tonight than he has been of late.
