Just a Bit Outside

The Cleveland Indians have the best record in baseball with their 13th straight home win after the first month of the 2011 MLB season. Bob Uecker and the gang would be very proud! No Manny, CC or even a Jobu, but the team which lost 93 games in 2010 looks like they could be for real. Timely hitting and exceptional pitching have catapulted the Tribe into the most dangerous team in all of baseball entering the month of May. What has changed? The AL Central is the worst division in baseball right now and their closest pursuer and only other team over .500 is Kansas City so that pretty much says it all.

Cleveland starts May with a west coast swing against the Angels and A’s and then come home to face the red hot Tampa Rays so it will be interesting to see if the Indians can keep up their fast start.
