Game Thread: New York Yankees @ Cleveland Indians 8/11

The New York Yankees and the Cleveland Indians begin a three game set tonight inside Progressive Field with each team heading in the opposite directions. The Indians are rebuilding towards the 2016 season while the New York Yankees are hoping to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2012. The Yankees lead is dwindling in the American League East and the team will have to start gaining back some of their cushion they had tonight in Cleveland. The Yankees will send Luis Severino to the mound tonight to face off with the Indians starter Carlos Carrasco. The game will be played at 7:10 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV.

New York has to win this series, even sweep this series if possible, before heading to Toronto for the weekend. No if’s, ands or but’s about it. It’s hard to say all the pressure is on New York in a series that starts on August 11th but when a team slides into a valley they need to get out of it quickly before it becomes mental. Bomb these Indians and send a message to the rest of the league, do it now. Head over to Twitter and follow @GreedyStripes to root for the Yankees during this massacre with us.

Jacoby Ellsbury is ready to step into the box and end the Yankees scoreless streak and I’m ready to tell half of our Twitter followers that I told you so. Go Yankees!
