The Cleveland Indians are going into the day winless. They are one of two teams that are—the other team is the Washington Nationals. The Indians came into the season as favored to win the Central Division with Cy Young winner Cliff Lee leading the team in pitching.

The Indians made a few key offseason signings also, including solid pitcher Carl Pavano, who was less than impressive in his first start—only going one inning and allowing nine earned runs.

The other addition is a really good one from the Chicago Cubs—Mark DeRosa. He is hitting a very weak .120 and only one HR in the five games they have played.

The Indians are currently playing the Toronto Blue Jays who are surprisingly at the top of the AL East. They lost last night in a close comeback in the late innnings, but again just could not get that win.

Once the Indians get that first win, they will be able to finally breath and relax and just start making their way up to the top of the division and off to the playoffs.
