What a difference a week makes. Last Saturday, the Indians had just been bombed by the Yankees 13 to 7, the Tigers were 2.0  games back and the sky was falling.  Today, the Indians have just put up 27 runs in their last two games, the Tigers have lost 5 straight to fall 5.0 games behind and everything seems right with the world. Oh, and in case you are keeping track of these things, the Tribe outscored the Browns 13 to 11 last night.
