Win, win, win.

Say, you don't think they're going run the table now, do you? Win all the rest of them? Now THAT would be a winning streak. The Indians beat the Twins Tuesday 4-3. It's the Indians' sixth win in a row. That's their longest winning streak since September of 2008.

And, of course, everyone could see this streak coming. Yep, it was so obvious. The Indians set it up by losing five of their last seven games before the all-star break. Then they come roaring out of the break, winning their first six games. The pitching has been great. The hitting timely. The defense, not horrible.

Put it all together and you've got the hottest team in the majors right now. And, theoretically, the Indians should be getting even better in the coming days. Tuesday Asdrubal Cabrera was activated off the disabeld list, where he'd been for two months with a broken arm. On Friday Shin-Soo Choo is scheduled to come off the disabled list, where he's been since July 4.

The addition of Choo will mean the Indians' lineup will be as complete as it's going to get this season. Grady Sizemore is still on the DL, but he isn't coming back. Not this year, following major knee surgery.

So for now the Indians are 6-0. Undefeated for almost a week. Go figure. Almost makes you forget about LeBron, no?
