Cleveland Sports Insiders 2.4: Indians 1, Tigers 0
Say hello to your first place Indians.
That's right ladies and gentlemen, after taking two of three from the first place Detroit Tigers, the Cleveland Indians have joined Detroit at the top of the standings in the A.L. Central with a 20-15 record. The Indians are 6-1 since last week's episode of CSI, which matched their 6-1 record the week prior. With Michael Bourn returning, are we finally seeing who this Cleveland Indians team really is, or have they yet to reach their ceiling?
Some other things to keep in mind prior to tonight's show. Yes, the Indians are tied for first place here in 2013, but there are some interesting connections to the past. In 2012, the Indians were 19-16, in first place, and two games ahead of the Tigers at this point last season. In 2011, the Indians were 23-12 and in first place and 4 1/2 games ahead of the Tigers at this point. Are the 2013 Cleveland Indians a different team, or are they finally built to win?
Steve and Jim will jump on board with this topic, as well as the return of Michael Bourn, the mysterious disappearance of Chris Perez, and many other Indians topics as well.
We are an equal opportunity Cleveland Sports talk show, and plan on talking about the NBA draft targets for the Cavs, as well as jumping into some discussion about the revamped Cleveland Browns defense.
We may have to table the Browns and Cavs talk until next week though, as the Indians will be on deck and ready to go for tonight.
Feel free to call us at 1-347-202-0338 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or at email@example.com to talk about anything on your mind. Thanks again for listening!
