I found this interesting info from last season really shows how strange last year was

American League Central teams, against teams with .500 or better records:

1. Cleveland: 37-38
2. Minnesota: 40-43
3. Chicago: 40-48
4. Detroit: 41-59
5. Kansas City: 41-62

And against teams below .500:

1. Chicago: 49-26
2. Minnesota: 48-32
3. Kansas City: 34-25
4. Detroit: 33-29
5. Cleveland: 44-43

Looks like the Indians are playing to the level of their competition.

The moral of this story is; show no mercy to the bottom feeders, especially in home games. And play about .500 against good teams. This is not rocket science.

Or the other strategy is to go .500 on the road (41-40) and win 2/3 of your games at home (54-27). Though that home record would be pretty tough to pull off, that would be a record of 95-67.

Or we could just go out and win every series and win 108 games. :)

Yup, goal should be to play about .700 ball against the bad teams and .500 against the top teams......will average out to around .600 ball for the whole year, which is 97 wins.....if the Tribe wins that many, they win this weak division.
