Of the cool things that have happened this season with the AL Central-winning Cleveland Indians, this might rank just slightly behind winning 22 straight games. Pitchers Trevor Bauer and Carlos Carrasco have spent the last few months of the season making the Indians’ “Mini Team” — baseball art that they say are basically caricatures of their teammates. Being the team whose fictional identity introduced us to Jobu, makes these pieces of baseball art even better.

If you were paying attention to sports last week, you already know that the Cleveland Indians allegedly broke the MLB record for consecutive wins. Yes, the Indians passed the '02 Athletics for the AL record, but there's a question nobody seems to want to ask—is the new MLB record actually legitimate? My answer is an emphatic n-o no.
