Baseball Prospectus: Tribe #2

#2: Cleveland Indians, 89-73, first in AL Central, 838 RS, 757 RA. True story: this wouldn’t be as good a run differential as they sported last year, when they went 78-84. So in actuality, I’m projecting them to a little bit worse than they were last year. OK, that’s taking Pythag a bit too seriously, but still, the Indians don’t have to get a lot better to win the Central. They have terrific lineup core with my pick for MVP in Grady Sizemore, and power from all nine slots. They sport a solid rotation with some upside at the front, one that will hopefully take the pressure off an improved, but just barely average, bullpen. Eric Wedge has to let skills and performance dictate roles out there, rather than experience and salary. Hello, Fernando Cabrera, Shin-Soo Choo, Ryan Garko and Rafael Betancourt, and goodbye Joe Borowski, Trot Nixon, Casey Blake and Roberto Hernandez. How the playing time gets spread will determine whether this pick looks good or not.

A FUCKING MEN
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.
