What does a 7-game win streak in April mean?

Basically nothing.

Over the past 50 seasons the Indians have put together a seven-game win streak three times (excluding this year). Here were the eventual results:

  • In 2002, the Tribe won 10 straight in April and promptly dropped their next six games, and 15 of their next 17. They would finish 74-88.
  • In 1999, the Indians won eight straight in April and went on win 97 games while winning the division by 21.5 games.
  • In 1966, they won 10 straight, only to finish the season at 81-81 and in 5th place in the division.
