Grading the Weekend Series: Tribe on top
It's time to hand out some grades. We'll hit on the Indians, Rockies, Yankees, Pirates and Phillies.
It's time, once again, to hand out some letter grades. For the sake of brevity and avoiding overkill over the course of the season, we just give one team per actual letter grade, so only five teams get graded while 25 do not.
First things first, congrats and an honorary A to each team that swept its respective series. So, nice work and a sticker to the Chicago Cubs , Kansas City Royals (who have decided not to be trade deadline sellers!), Braves and Detroit Tigers . We'll go with the most impressive series win, relative to how good the teams playing each other this weekend were as the tiebreaker, and that lands us in Cleveland -- barely over the first-place Braves sweeping the first-place Cardinals.
