Life is good for Cleveland Indians fans...for now. The team is currently atop the AL Central with a 34-26 record and lead the second-place Chicago White Sox by 3.5 games.
Does this mean the franchise is going to create the magic that many thought was only achievable for Cleveland in the movies?
Last night four Indians fans wore jerseys representing the main characters from the famous movie Major League: Pedro Cerrano, Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn, Roger Dorn and Lou Brown. The four men in the movie helped Cleveland to a fictional World Series title, which is something the franchise hasn't achieve in real-life since 1948.
But it seems as if the fans last night in Anaheim are trying to bring back that positivity as the Indians are off to a fast start in a seemingly wide open AL Central division.
Cleveland also had a nice draft and snagged great value in the first round.
Don't look now, but if the Indians can maintain consistency, they'll be in a good position to make a playoff run. They don't have Brown managing the club, but Terry Francona is good enough. And it's safe to say closer Cody Allen is a bit more accurate and composed than "Wild Thing."
