Have you ever read the works of Shan Yu?

"Live with a man 40 years, share his house, his meals, speak on every subject. Then tie him up and hold him over the volcano's edge. And on that day you will finally meet the man." -Shan Yu (fictitious psychotic dictator for the TV series Firefly.)

We are entering a period where we will get to meet the real Cleveland Indians.

The starters won't always give us a quality start. The bullpen will give up some runs. The hitters won't always come through in the clutch. The defense won't always be spotless. Just like every relationship must move past the infatuation stage, every winning streak must end. Now, we get to see the blemishes.

The magical hot start of the season has come to its inevitable end. This can be a good thing. Let me remind you that Justin Masterson still pitched well even without his best stuff. Now we get to see our team face some adversity. The next few weeks will tell us, where we are as a team.
