Are the Indians coming back to Earth?

LC June 14, 2011 0

The Cleveland Indians are the biggest surprise of the 2011 MLB Season this far. They maintained the best record for a lot of April and May, but have hit a rough patch. They were the best team at home coming into June were they lost 5 out of 8 game at home, including 5 in a row. Right now the Indians are still in first place, losing a series to the Minnesota Twins. The Tigers are hot on their tails, they have been improving after a slow start and are on pace to give the Indians a run for their money to win the AL Central. The Tribe has already dealt with injury problems to Shin-Soo-Choo,Grady Sizemore,and Travis Hafner. When they are all healthy, they are the best team in baseball. Grady Sizemore has made two separate stints to the Disable List already this season, and Travis Hafner is just returning from a stint to the DL. With Hafner and Sizemore both in the line up they are at their best. Lately the Indians have struggled with their pitching and defense. Rookie Alex White was out to a great start before getting hurt and going to the Disabled List. Justin Masterson has showed he has potential to be the top end of the rotation guy, but can he keep it up? It is going to be tough, but the Indians can make it to the playoffs and move on. They have a great future in front of them with all of their young stars.
