"What we know, though, with reasonable confidence, is that Bibee and Williams are among the five best starters in the organization right now, and that the Guardians need every win they can get. The expanded playoffs don’t help them much, as their access to a wild-card spot is likely limited given the quality of the teams in the AL East and AL West. They probably have to win the AL Central to get into the tournament, and every Hunter Gaddis blowup makes it less likely they do so."
