The baseball gods smile–at least for now

Unbelievable.

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.
