The Reds can't seem to be healthy, Indians find themselves on a bit of a hot streak. Forty years ago, 10 Cent Beer Night plagued Cleveland. The NBA Finals and the Stanley Cup are underway.

The Indians get hot and the Reds can't get healthy. Last season, for the first time in 18 years, the Reds and Indians both made the playoffs in the same season. WOSU’s Public Media’s Thomas Bradley and Steve Brown talk to Zack Meisel of Cleveland.com about the seasons of the Reds and the Indians thus far.

Later, this week we'll make a toast to the 40th anniversary of Ten Cent Beer Night, one of the worst promotional ideas in sports history. Streakers, fights, base stealing and general drunken shenanigans… That’s The Cleveland Indians’ 10 Cent Beer Night.

Finally, Steve talks about his passion for the NBA Finals and Thomas talks about his excitement for the Stanley Cup final. Both series are underway, and excitement is sure to follow.
