If this were football, the Indians would have locked up a first round bye and probably would be hosting the Packers at Progressive Field.

Sadly, it isn't. But the first 10 percent of this season has gone better than anyone could have imagined. The pitching has been better than it has been in four years. The hitting has been reasonably consistent, with Travis Hafner of all people among those leading the charge.

But Monday night in Kansas City was a big deal -- it was the first time all season that the Indians fell behind and came back to win. And the Indians bullpen, despite some control issues, got it done.

No one can talk pennant yet, but did anyone believe the Indians would be eight games over .500 at any time this season?

If the season ended today, Manny Acta would be manager of the year and Justin Masterson would get Cy Young votes. It doesn't, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy things right now.
