Baseball, in it's most wonderful form
The Indians are 15-8, but the most impressive thing is that they've won nine consecutive home games. I'm not sure if they'll match what the 1994 squad did (18 straight home wins), but it's a start.

The Indians still are not drawing. Even with a forecast for bad weather which, as it turned out, never materialized, the Tribe still ought to be able to bring in more than 9,000 fans.

The numbers will get better, but that's not the point. I am beginning to wonder if the fans just don't like the organization for breaking up the team of the 90s, or, worse, if the economy has made this a two-sport (at best) town.

Still, the pitching has been excellent. Carlos Carrasco became the second starter to go on the DL, which makes one wonder if the Tribe can get by relying on a seventh starter for any amount of time.

Still, the team is winning right now, and that's all that matters.
