Mountains And Molehills

Now that I have had overnight to reflect on yesterday's Indians' game, I feel as if I may have been right about what happened at Progressive Field.

↵

Are the Cavs better than the Heat? No, they are not. Nor are they better than the Celtics, or the Lakers, all of whom they have beaten in their forgettable NBA season.

↵

Things happen, and games happen, but until there is a pattern, there is no need to make a mountain out of a molehill.

↵

I still maintain that the Tribe lost this game before the first pitch. Everyone was pressing when the game was young, including Fausto Carmona. The clutch hitting WAS clutch -- once the game was essentially out of reach.

↵

If Carmona had held the White Sox to two runs, I am willing to think that the Sox would have held the Indians to one. The simple fact is, Mark Buehrle is an Opening Day beast -- the Tribe knew it, knew they could not afford mistakes...and thus made a ton of them, especially on the mound early on.

↵

Mountain...molehill. Let's not give up on the Indians just yet (as so many on Cleveland.com seemed to last night in the comments). Let's let Carmona and Co. have their next few appearances before we "panic". Then, if the ERA's are Everest-like...then we will have a mountain. Until then, this was just a one-game molehill. Learn from it. Relax. Move on, Indians.
