Way to early to say that. There's over 90 games still to play. Kinsler and Phillips should both go close. I wouldn't discount David Wright or Nate McLouth either.

Not really when you consider how awful the Indians lineup is right now.


"Awful" "right now"? Cleveland is leading MLB in runs/rbi in June -- batting .287 and are 3rd in total bases.

Besides Grady who do they have that is tough to get out? Your team stats will definitely get a boost after facing DET, MIN, SDG.

Shin. Soo. Choo. Nearly impossible out.

No, I hear - just reacted to "awful" and "right now" - it's not a lineup that inspires fear, I agree.

Well for the season they're 6th in the AL in runs scored so not only are they not awful but they're actually average to good.

They're just having a down year, they'll be back.
Sabathia could get them something huge, so we'll see next year.

Or Brandon Phillips.
PLus a few other guys, who could easily get it if they got on a little tear.
