Cleveland Sports Insiders 2.5: Indians ARE that good
Join Jim Pete and Steve Orbanek tonight at 9:00 for another edition of Cleveland Sports Insider, as the two avid watchers of General McLane athletics and Cleveland Indians baseball start their scoreboard watching early.
Their topics of conversation will focus on your Cleveland Indians, who wrapped up their week with a dominating 6-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners and former Cy Young Award winner Felix Hernandez. Their 6-0 shutout victory was their seventh of the season, which matched their win total against former Cy Young winners as well. The Indians improved to 7-1 against Cy Young winners, and the CSI boys will surely mention this five to six thousand times, to match twitter.
Keeping all of this in mind, the Indians are 5-2 over the last week, and 17-4 since April 28, which is the best record in baseball over that stretch. On top of that, the Indians record of 25-17 is fourth best in the American League, and fifth best in all of baseball. Just how good is this team really? When you incorporate the new players, the pitching staff pitching at a high level, perhaps the best bullpen in baseball, and a coaching staff that is clearly one of the best in the game, can you really mention the Tribe with the five or six best teams in baseball?
Again...is this team playing it's best baseball yet?
Oh, I'm sure CSI will meander around the Browns and the Cavs a bit, but the focus on tonight's episode will be on the first place Cleveland Indians.
