Morning Rundown: WhiteSox Down, Joy in the Misery of Others
Asdrubal CabreraChicago White SoxChris PerezJustin MastersonRafael PerezRoberto HernandezRuss CanzlerUbaldo JimenezThe Chicago White Sox pushed Jake Peavy back a start. The ultimate slap in the face for a team not in the race as they prepare to face a much stiffer test in Tampa. I can understand why they did it, but if I'm the Indians, I use that as enough motivation.

Morning Rundown: Gone Quicker Than a 20 Dollar Bill
Asdrubal CabreraCarlos SantanaCord PhelpsDavid HuffJason DonaldKansas City RoyalsLonnie ChisenhallRoberto HernandezThomas NealTravis HafnerSo an 8-4 lead isn't anything, especially since you trailed until the sixth inning. So I guess that the game all in all was a very up-in-the-air affair. The final score isn't really indicative to what happened, especially in the weekend as a whole considering the Tribe dropped the previous two meetings on Friday and Saturday.

Morning Rundown: Tribe Foiled Again in Texas

The Indians are at 59 wins. If they were to end up losing 100, they'd only end up winning no more than three more games. The thought is crazy considering they have 19 games left, six of which are against the Royals and Twins. They can win more than three in there, right? RIGHT?

Last night, I laid there and watched the ship sink. I didn't jump off though. I decided that drowning in the sorrow of another Jimenez effort was a nice way to spend a Tuesday night.

Not that he's overly killed them compared to anyone else. I mean the rest of baseball would feel better about themselves if Cabrera wasn't terrorizing pitching rotations and bullpens.

This is the Cleveland Indians team we saw in April and May, the one we've seen in the past two games. My question: Where did they go and why did it take so long for them to come back?

The month the Indians have been waiting for. One that is not August. I'll be forever mystified by the "We can't wait til August is over" quotes, but I get it. They've mentally made up in their minds that August has been a total disaster and that once it passes, things will get better. Whatever helps everyone sleep at night I guess. As long as things change in September. If the first two games are any indication, they'll likely win at least more than five.
