Want some ridiculous news? After the Yankees leave town, the next AL East opponent for the Indians is Baltimore… on August 27th. The next AL East opponent not named the Orioles for the Indians (after the Bombers leave town, obviously) is the Boston Red Sox on… wait for it… October 1st. If there’s any thought that the AL East boasts some of the more talented teams in the AL, know that after Monday, the Indians have 10 games left against them, and only 4 of those games DON’T come against the O’s. If we’re looking for a silver lining to this start by the Indians, maybe there is something to the fact that their early-season schedule slotted them against some of the heavyweights outside of their division early on and that this will all come out in the wash, with the Central ultimately being won by the team with the best record against the Central.

The DiaTribe We seriously need some quality, readily available strength of schedule numbers for MLB. Andy Dolphin (www.dolphinsim.com/ratings/) doesn't have his MLB numbers up for 2009 yet.
