With the latest injury to Danny Salazar, how will the Indians assemble their rotation for the last three weeks of the regular season and, potentially, for the playoffs? Can they survive with Mike Clevinger or Josh Tomlin on the starting staff? What will the team do with Yan Gomes? What can we expect this weekend when the Tribe takes on the Tigers?

In the second episode of the Pennant Race podcast, cleveland.com's Indians beat writer Paul hoynes and Zack Meisel talk about what do the Indians do with the fifth spot in the rotation? How bizarre is this for a team to not know what to do with its rotation while in a pennant race in September? Why is it taboo for players to admit that they scoreboard watch? Will it all come down to the Indians' late-September series in Detroit? Can the players handle that pressure? Can the writers? and The tale of the galloping ghost.
Carlos Carrasco's season-ending injury certainly changed the outlook on the Indians' postseason potential. Don't tell that to anyone in the Tribe clubhouse, though. The Indians remain confident in their ability, despite the new challenges. How can they survive the absence of Carrasco? Should we be surprised by the team's reaction to Paul Hoynes' article that declared the postseason dreams dashed? We go inside Hoynes' decision to write his piece and we discuss whether the Indians do, in fact, have a chance come October.
