Since ‘The Sweep’ as it will come to be known in Cleveland sports lore. (For some reason we feel the need to name our disappointments- Red Right 88, The Drive, The Fumble, The Shot, The Collapse…) I have thrown my sports self in to the Indians and their quest to win the division. Currently they sit atop the Central by a game over the Tigers, and the Twins are 6.5 back, but certainly within striking distance. I have to say that nothing tickles me more this year than knowing that the White Sux have collapsed. Three teams are enough to battle for one division title thank you.
While we wait for Sizemore and Pronk to remember that they are all-star caliber players- the pitching staff has been excellent this year. Sabathia finally is showing signs of being a true ace, and Carmona has been a fantastic surprise so far. I always have reservations about young arms going to the post-season, but what he has given the Tribe already this year is more than you bargained for with him. Hopefully Westbrook and Lee will regain the form that they had last season. If they do- we should glide to the division crown.
