Power Rankings
People keep talking about the Rangers, but the Indians would make a near-perfect fit for Jonathan Lucroy. Reports indicate the Indians are unlikely to do it, but, man, it just seems a great fit.
That's three straight weeks the number one team has bombed after the ranking. I need to realize that with great power comes great responsibility.
A fun choice and a relatively easy choice. Oh and hey, how is your summer going so far, Cleveland?
The 11-game winning streak marks the longest for the Indians since 1982. They are two away from tying the club record. Yes, I considered moving them above the Cubs, for those curious. Strongly considered.
You know who is having a very good year, albeit one under the radar? Joba Chamberlain. In 16 1/3 innings, he has a 2.20 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 17 strikeouts. Opponents are hitting .148 against him. That's a hell of a return on a one-year, $1 million deal.
Even with the two straight losses to the Royals, the Indians are 18-9 against fellow AL Central foes this season.
Since May 15, the Indians have gone 15-8 and every loss has come against a team with a winning record.
Corey Kluber has allowed at least five runs in three of his 11 starts. That only happened twice in his Cy Young winning season in 2014.
Major injuries to Carlos Carrasco and Michael Brantley and they're only 1 1/2 games out of first -- and tied in the loss column. Keep an eye on this group.
Losing back to back series against the Astros and Twins is pretty tough for an expected contender. But, again, this thing is a marathon.
