Offense, expect a ton of it. Cleveland pitcher Scott Lewis has been getting cranked like a Fisher-Price toy lately. Scott Richmond, starting Jays pitcher, is fairly green and untested. It’s not fireorks night in Cleveland today for the home opener, but there will be plenty of boom!
Toronto brings a pretty potent offense featuring Vernon Wells and Alex Rios. Several other players are hitting homeruns for the Jays too.
The common sense thing to do here would be to predict big offense. That’s exactly what I am doing when I tell you both teams will probably score over 8 runs. I could look like a total idiot and Lewis can throw a shutout. Based on what I have seen so far, Indians pitching is tee ball quality so far, why break the trend?
