We all got a taste of first place here at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario, as your Indians found themselves all by their lonesome in first on Monday afternoon after Justin Masterson did his best Cy Young impression in beating the New York Yankees. I’m not going to lie. It tasted pretty good.
Sure, the Indians were in first place at this point last year, and the year before as well, but this team is a whole lot different.
The offense is sustainable, and it’s healthy.
The defense is stable and improving.
The starting pitching is…well…what it is, but there’s potential there as well in a couple of kids named Trevor Bauer and Carlos Carrasco.
The bullpen is arguably one of the top four or five in the game.
Do you think the Tigers took notice this weekend? Sure, it’s only April, but I sure love the tenacity of this team. The scary thing?
They are going to get better.
Justin Masterson was absolutely brilliant on Monday in game one of the doubleheader against the New York Yank...
