First Drones, Then . . . ?

Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer, who was slotted to start game 2 of the American League Championship series for the Tribe, cut his pinky fixing a drone.  Because professional baseball pitchers do need use of their hands, his scheduled start will be moved back to game 3.

  • Freak storm dropping 18 inches of snow during the fifth inning of game 2
  • Entire Indians team experiences food poisoning from eating poutine the night before game 3
  • Zombie uprising strikes Toronto, with half of the Tribe bullpen converted into grotesque freaks who crave human flesh
  • Alien invasion during the performance of the National Anthem at the start of game 4

Or here’s something really weird:  maybe the Tribe will avoid any more oddball injuries or other mishaps and actually advance to the World Series.  What could be weirder than that?
