You don’t need to provide the Indians with a proof of concept about how it could work. They didn’t exactly invent the idea of riding their bullpen until it crumples, but they certainly popularized it last year. They did it last year because they had to, because two of their better pitchers, Danny Salazar and Carlos Carrasco, were hurt. So their rotation was basically Corey Kluber and Johnny Wholestaff, over and over again.
They had to do it last year. This year, they might do it by design. If Britton is right, and the rest of the Indians bullpen is as effective as they were last year, they’ll be the masters of shortening the game again. The over-under for total innings thrown by a starter in a Yankees-Indians ALDS would be about 10.5.

This team may be a candidate for a new stadium in its own market or a potential relocation. Very strong Major league affiliation. Asking price is $8.5 million.
Unique turnaround situation is probably not what you want; that’s like saying a house is a fixer-upper with good bones. You’re not fooling anyone. Plus, $8.5 million is pretty steep for Chrissy as a first time owner. Next!
