This season, Cleveland is again in first place early, posting a solid 23-18 record (as of Sunday night), leading the Chicago White Sox by 3.5 games.  However, on May 31st of 2011, the Indians were five games up and they ended the season 15 games back.  So, besides winning more games and beating teams that they look better than on paper, how can the Cleveland Indians avoid another embarrassing collapse?
