Corner of Carnegie and Ontario: "We're going streaking!!!"
Michael Brantley is entering rarified air with regards to his current 22-game hit streak, and Ubaldo Jimenez and Justin Masterson have looked like aces. Will these three continue to perform at this level for the rest of the season? We're more than halfway to July, and speculation has begun with regards to teams willing to make a deal. Will the Indians be in on a guy like Alfonso Soriano?

Today's headliner is a Cleveland native that just won't go away, and shouldn't. Check out Friday's Around the Farm, after the jump...
