It's been a while, hasn't it? Well, getting COVID in mid-June on the offseason starting for the Cleveland Cavaliers can certainly do that to a publication as well as the lone writer running it. But, thankfully, Right Down Euclid is back with its semi-weekly Cleveland Guardians takeaways. As of today, the Guardians are 41-42, dropping their last two games at home to the Chicago White Sox, a bitter divisional rival. Despite this, Cleveland is still in second place in the AL Central division and only 4.5 games back of the Minnesota Twins for first place overall.
Even with the two bitter recent losses, the Guardians do have something to celebrate. They will have three players representing the club at the 2022 MLB All-Star Game in Los Angeles next week in Jose Ramirez, Emmanuel Clase and Andres Gimenez.

Mind you, their record would likely be different if they could've gotten more from Franmil Reyes up to this point. But, it appears the slugger might be on the turnaround. Plenty on all of this, as well as an updated record prediction, in this week's edition on key Guardians takeaways.
