There's a saying in baseball (there's lots of them) that you're never as good as you look when things are going well...and not as bad as you look when things are going badly. The Indians have won five straight road games, and opened up a 6-game Central Division lead. So are they this good? Yep, I think so. The pitching has probably over-achieved, but the offense definitely has not. Look at the recent additions. Jay Bruce, Austin Jackson, Joe Smith, and lefty reliever Tyler Olson. Not a bad one in the bunch. And Andrew Miller, Lonnie Chisenhall and Michael Brantley will be coming back. The roster is starting to look as good as last year's roster. It doesn't mean a World Series, but it means they've got a chance.
