We turn, once again, to our friends at Royals Treatment to breakdown the upcoming series between the Royals and the Indians in Kansas City. You read it correctly, this is an early season battle for the top spot in the American League Central.
Who saw this coming? When the Royals host the Cleveland Indians in this week’s 4-game battle, it will be contested with the A.L. Central division lead on the line! Both teams, written off by analysts and fans before the season had even began, have surged out of the gate and carry forth with them plenty of momentum into what should make for a very entertaining clash:
