The Indians have had a dismal year, but they have been a red-hot team of late as they have now won eight straight. Now they have what should be the AL Cy Young winner on the mound in Cliff Lee. Lee stands at 18-2. How impressive is that? The Indians are just 45-65 otherwise. A 40% winning team that turns into a 90% winning team in Lee's decisions. The Tigers have gotten nothing going all season. The bright spot was when they were hitting LHP, to a record of 21-8, but recently that has stopped as they have now dropped four straight to LHP, and seven of nine. We like the Indians behind Lee on the runline here.
