BELIEVE IT! The Indians are the best team in the American League!

Is it early?

Sure.

But the White Sox just dropped a week of games and the Twins are banged up (and lost to Baltimore).
And oh yeah, Justin Masterson is 4-0 and making the Victor Martinez trade look worse for the Sox. (Hindsight being 20/20.)

If the Tribe wins tomorrow, they will have taken 3 of 4 from the Royals. Usually that doesn’t mean anything, except that they were the best teams in the A.L. when the series started.

Start watching, Cleveland fans. Something cool might be happening.

Well there was good news and bad news…

The good news?

A Red Sox farm product through a masterful 2 hit shutout in the Sox/Indians game.
Bad news?
It was Justin Masterson pitching AGAINST the Red Sox!
Ah well… Sox lost 11-0. It’s hard to get worked up when the teams pitching AND hitting stunk.
And frankly Buchholz didn’t pitch badly. 7 innings, 3 earned runs is pretty good.
Boof Bonser let up 4 runs and got no batters out in his Red Sox debut.

He put the oof in Boof.

Currently his ERA is infinity.
Let’s hope he can lower it.
