Big comebacks
Down 5-0 Tuesday, the Indians get within a hit of the lead. Down 2-0 Wednesday, with no baserunners through five innings, the Indians come back, and win 7-5.

Maybe this is just a hot April. But the Indians are getting to the point where you never feel they are out of a game. This is what winning teams do.

Justin Masterson looked like he was in for a rough game. Three walks, two runs, 31 pitches in the first inning. And then ...

Five shutout innings.

I still see Cliff Lee in Masterson.

As far as everyone else... I love what Orlando Cabrera has brought to the Indians. Chris Perez is starting to remind me of Goose Gossage, a hard throwing righty who doesn't care. He makes a 3-pitch save and goes on Twitter. He grows a big beard and looks like the intimidating presence he is.

The Indians are eight games over 500, and are off to their best start since 1999, when they won the division.

No one knows where this is going.

But it sure is fun right now.
