Hello Tribe fans! It's time once again for baseball on the "corner of Carnegie and Ontario" and this year, expectations are high for the Cleveland Indians. This is the third year Terry "Tito" Francona has been manager and while they made the wildcard one off game in 2013, 2014 was a bit of a disappointment when they weren't able to make the playoffs. And while there was some highs (Corey Kluber's Cy Young winning year) there were also lows (Michael Bourn and Nick Swisher injuries) the time might be right for the Indians to make a run at the AL Central Division title.
The bullpen will have good contributors in closer Cody Allen, Mark Rzepczynski and Bryan Shaw. The season will depend on this group being solid if the Indians have any chance at the playoffs.
Final Record: 91-71, first place, AL Central Division Champions with the Tribe going far in to the playoffs this year. Perhaps even a World Series trip.
I look forward to writing and contributing Indians recaps and stories for Triple Threat CLE this spring/summer and in to the fall.
