Good, this kid can bring it, and he has learned the craft and improved at every level. Hopefully he will continue to develop surrounded by guys in the pen that have figured it out, know the hitters, and are doing a really good job this year. If the Indians can take a little momentum into the second half, they could still surprise. The Tigers can be had, and so can the Royals, with all their talent. I think the Lebron thing is huge. With the new players- Dickerson and Perez coming up and the overall buzz, there is a new energy in Cleveland and the Indians seem to have picked up the torch here for the moment anyway. As far as LeBron goes, I had predicted the prodigal son would return when the Heat lost to the Spurs. The universe was calling for it and LeBron, soulful person that he is down deep, heard it. I think it's igniting off a synergy of good things.... Praise the Lord!
