There is zero propitious about what the Cleveland Indians are doing and they are now the group to beat

What a disproportion 3 weeks make. 

On Aug 23, the Los Angeles Dodgers were personification so good that Sports Illustrated put them on the cover with the caption, “BEST. TEAM. EVER?” In the weeks since, the Dodgers have left on a widen where they have lost 16 of 17 and the Cleveland Indians have won 19 in a row, the fourth-longest strain but a detriment in MLB history.

While teams can get streaky over 162 games, there is zero propitious about what the Indians are doing. During their winning streak, they have outscored their opponents by 100 runs, or about 5.3 runs per game. As a result, the Indians have surged to the top of ball in terms of run differential, a stat that is mostly the best indicator of a team’s loyal ability. Meanwhile, the Dodgers are falling quick and are hardly forward of the next 3 teams on the list, the New York Yankees, the Washington Nationals, and the Houston Astros.
