Am I dreaming?

Or did the Tribe bats come alive tonight? Maybe it was just because we were facing Dontrelle Willis. But, wow. Too bad Barfield didn’t have a hit, but, I think it might just be first night jitterz. And lets give a hand to Cliff Lee, the first man in the AL to earn 10 wins. If he doesn’t get an All Star bid, something is wrong. Box score from tonight because I’m finally proud to post it.
