Contrary to my predictions last week, somehow the Detroit Tigers have managed to remain undefeated through the first week of the baseball season. They’re 5-0. Just as enjoyable, the Cleveland Indians are right behind them, with a 4-1 record.
But that’s not the best thing.
No, the best thing is that the dreaded New York Yankees are in last place as of this writing. They’re 1-4.
I love it.
Yes, I know it probably can’t last (with the possible exception of the Indians remaining in contention for winning the A.L. Central Division) and that the first 5 games or so of a 162 game season mean little, but I plan to enjoy it while I can, before Detroit takes its inevitable plunge back to fourth place.
