Who Are You and What Have You Done With the Indians



Um, don't look now but the Cleveland Indians are super good at baseball.

One night after their seven-game winning streak was snapped, the Tribe rallied for the win in their final at-bat for an incredible seventh time this season. Seriously, I hope Indians fans have learned to not leave the ballpark early this season.

One thing's for sure: they will not be ignored. Everyone is a contributor, including former Oakland Athletics infielder Jack Hannahan, who broke an extra-inning tie Thursday against his old team, nailing a liner just past Cliff Pennington in the 12th inning to send home the go-ahead run in the Indians' 4-3 victory at the Coliseum.

Manager Manny Acta is pretty proud:

"They’re very resilient and they believe in themselves. It’s early, but the amount of times that we have done it late in the games, really kind of gives them confidence."

This marks the seventh time Cleveland has busted out a 21-9 start, including the magical year of 1948, which just so happens to be the last time they won the World Series. Coincidence? Probably.

By the way, this has absolutely nothing to do with the Indians, other than the fact that leading your division is pretty damn sexy. Behold, the 40 sexiest celebrity first pitches, courtesy of Super Booyah.
