Call to the Bullpen has moved to a new show time! Tune in tonight and from now on on Wednesday nights at 10:00 pm ET. Don't look now, but the Indians have won four straight series and are still in second place within striking distance of the Tigers. Now a long, hard road trip will test them and see if they can stay afloat despite their recent struggles away from Progressive Field. The bullpen will play a huge role in whatever success they have. However, they've recently become somewhat unreliable for the Tribe due to injuries and inconsistency. Can they get back on track and go back to being the dominant force they've been in the past? Jake and Hayden discuss all that and more tonight!
