Just when it looked like the Cleveland Guardians were about to pose a significant threat to the Minnesota Twins in the AL Central, things went south yet again.
Over the weekend, the Guardians lost two out of three to the New York Yankees, who just don’t stop winning.
On Monday, things didn’t get any easier.
Cleveland had a doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers for the 4th of July, and it didn’t go well.
Former professional wrestler Jerry Lawler, who is a huge Guardians fan, posted a very relatable tweet for all fans of the Guardians after they lost both games yesterday.
Just spent 6 hours of my life, that I'll never get back, watching my Cleveland Guardians lose a double header to Detroit. pic.twitter.com/3vRCzvroSD

A Relatable Feeling
Perhaps there’s no better way to cope with losing both games of a doubleheader to the Tigers than to tweet about it.
The look on Lawler’s face says it all.
Guardians fans can relate to something like this.
When you watch your team lose both games of a doubleheader against a sub .500 team like the Tigers, there’s really nothing you can do about it, other than relate to Lawler’s tweet in this case.
After losing the 2016 World Series to the Chicago Cubs, the Guardians basically became the new Cubs.
They currently own the longest championship drought of any team in baseball, having not won it since 1948.
But here they are after being swept in yesterday’s doubleheader, to the Tigers of all teams.
At the end of last week, it seemed as though they were about to catch up to the Twins and possibly even take their spot at the top of the AL Central.
But that was not to be.
Lawler’s tweet tells the entire story of disappointment for the Guardians and their fans.
