I stand somewhat corrected

Earlier in the season I wondered how Buster Olney could possibly consider the Indians to have the best 1-2-3 in baseball (instead arguing for Halladay, Burnett, and McGowan of Toronto). Well, Cleveland might indeed have the best 1-2-3, but it isn’t who I thought.

Originally I wondered who you would consider the number 3, Paul Byrd or Jake Westbrook.

Well, it is obvious to Yankee fans now that the number 3 is Cliff Lee.

Lee was simply masterful and when you combine him with Sabathia and Carmona, you have to think the Indians will contend by season’s end, even if their offense has helped put them in a hole early (along with a couple bad starts from Sabathia).

  1. I don’t think Cleveland will have the best 1-2-3 next season. Sabathia is not the type to share the title of Ace.
