Ships passing in the night?

The Indians are in Chicago for two games stating tonight. The Indians haven't seen the White Sox since the first three games of the season. After losing the first two games of the season to Chicago the Indians are 26-11 since then. The White Sox, over that same span, are 16-25.

The best part about the Indians' hot start is that it has already allowed them to put considerable distance between themselves and the White Sox and Twins, the two teams that many felt were the best in the division at the start of the season.

However, six weeks into the season the Indians are not only in first place, but a whopping 10 games ahead of the White Sox and 13 1/2 games ahead of the Twins.

The Indians are also getting the kind of breaks that seem to come with teams having the kind of year they are having. For example, last weekend, they had two games with Seattle rained out, and the scheduled starting pitchers for Seattle in those two games were Cy Young winner Felix Hernandez, and rookie phenom Michael Pineda.

When you're hot, you're hot.
