Don’t look now baseball fans, but your Cleveland Guardians are right in the thick of the postseason race.
The Guardians have now won six consecutive series and find themselves 8-2 in their last 10 games.
They have control of the second AL Wild Card spot and sit just one game back of the first-place Minnesota Twins in the American League Central division at 34-28.
Cleveland missed the postseason in 2021, but now appear to be a team to watch out for as we move closer to the midpoint of the 2022 regular season.
MLB tweeted about the Guardians’ accomplishments, warning everyone else in baseball not to sleep on them.

Don’t Sleep On Cleveland
You simply can’t sleep on this team.
This is a good team with plenty of talent on its roster.
People outside of Cleveland may not know much about these guys, but they are playing their best baseball at the moment and are beating some very good ballclubs, with their most recent series win coming against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Again, Cleveland fell short of October last year, but they’re making things interesting in the AL Central and in the Wild Card race.
This might just be one of those ballclubs that turns out to be a team of destiny, with all the pieces falling into place and preparing them for an unexpected run.
Before long, we could even see the Guardians take control of first place in the AL Central.
We’ll see what’s next for this team as we move deeper into the season.
