Am I the only one who has the sensation that this team is never going to lose? (Yes, I am well-versed in reality. Still, this is awfully fun.) 17-7? Best record in baseball?

Our dear angel went 7.2 innings, another deep performance to minimize chances for the evil bullpen to screw it up.

Just look at the beauty of it while it lasts:
