Changing gears - the Cleveland Indians

Fans of the BBC know that this blog has changed it's central focus in the past....and it'll happen again. Today is one of those days.

The Buckeyes are 60 days away from their opening game of the 2007 season. As that number shrinks, the frequency of OSU posts will increase. This blog was created as a Buckeye blog, and my beloved university always be the main issue of discussion. But in the meantime, I'm still a huge sports fan, and it's the middle of baseball season. Thus, I will put a lot of focus on the Cleveland Indians.

I'm not one to get too in-depth when it comes to baseball (if you want pitch-by-pitch breakdown and if you want to know how to tell the difference between a slider and a curve, ask PoJo. He's your man. But I'm a Tribe fan and I love spending evenings at the Jake, so I'll put my two cents in as often as possible.

Having said that, how bout those Indians?

Tonight the Tribe took it to the Detroit Kitties again (do we own that city and the state they reside in or what?) We're 5-2 against the defending AL Champions, and we now hold a 3-game lead in the AL Central. Did you hear that? We're in first place in July. Hell, yeah.

One last point to bring up before I call it a night.....for any doubters out there who want to talk about the juggernaut that is Boston, or the surge that is Los Angeles, let me mention this....the Indians are 51-32. One-half game behind both the Red Sox and the Angels. Tomorrow night, it's likely that we could be the best team in the MLB.

But for now, we're the best in the Central, and that gets us into the playoffs if it holds.

Yo JEFF...thanks for the props. We tell it pretty much like it is over at the Tribe Report, and have a good team of guys over there.

Only 60 days to go though...and looking forward to the BBC picking it up...as well as the Horseshoe.

As far as the Indians go...After the Buckeyes, and the Cavs MADE it to the finals...

it would be nice if someone could actually WIN!

Go Tribe!
