New, comments

Big Smooth Drew Pomeranz, no slouch himself, will face off against Cleveland ace Corey Kluber.

MLB: Cleveland Indians at Tampa Bay Rays
The Klubot, in Laughing Hysterically mode.

There aren’t many non-Sox that are good enough to get the OTM photo treatment, but we have ourselves a treat today with a Corey Kluber/Drew Pomeranz matchup today and Klubes has earned it. Check this out:

That’s wild. Anyhow, Pomeranz will try to keep it going without the services of Jackie Bradley Jr., who is headed to the DL. The flailing Brock Holt /o\ takes over in left field, pushing the red-hot Andrew Benintendi to center. Hopefully Benny left some magic dust out there for Holt to pick up, or Brock is gonna get aced out pretty soon no matter how change-resistant our manager is. Here are the full lineups:
