Found May 03, 2013 on Indians Baseball Insider:
Summer is in the air and Jake, Mike and Hayden are back to discuss the warming weather and warming bats in Cleveland. Cy Young winners are dropping like flies at the hands of Indians hitters as the Tribe is now working their way back to the .500 mark and staying in the AL Central race. The offense is scoring runs left and right while the starting pitching appears to be settling into a groove. Is something special brewing with this team? David Price and a couple other Rays pitchers along with MLB umpire Tom Hallion were fined for a confrontation in Chicago. Can Price turn his game around? Meanwhile, Boston is on a tear as they currently own the best record in baseball with Clay Buchholz leading the charge. And one month into the season and Kansas City is still a division leader.
