The Cleveland Indians have arrived in town. Let's just hope they're not here to take back their pro football franchise. Hopefully, they're here to expand the strike zone and give Orioles starter Garrett Olson a little confidence boost in the series opener tonight at Camden Yards.

Thank heaven for small favors. Olson apparently will not have to face Travis Hafner, who will be one of the Indians' hottest hitters when he is activated from his injury rehabilitation assignment on Tuesday. He just led the Double-A Akron Aeros to victory in their best-of-five Eastern League playoff series against the Bowie Baysox, hitting a grand slam to provide the margin of victory in Game 3 and homering again in the clincher on Saturday.

I heard the Indians actually wanted Hafner to continue with his rehab...until somebody realized the Little League World Series ended a couple of weeks ago.
