When the Indians were 15 games behind Chicago, it appeared that our best-team honors would go to the summer-league champ at Wickliffe Lanes. But since then, the Tribe’s been hotter than a stolen haba–ero, chasing down the White Sox and posting the best record in the majors. They’ve done it with a string of breakout performances: Travis Hafner’s 30-homer, 100-RBI season has garnered league-MVP talk. Grady Sizemore has become one of the league’s most potent leadoff men. And Jhonny Peralta has rendered Omar a faded memory. The way this fall is shaping up, the Tribe might outlast the Browns.
