IBI Power Poll: AL Central Division Winner?
The Cleveland Indians have made dramatic improvements over the offseason, which turned what likely would have been a lost year into one of curiosity. The Detroit Tigers remain loaded, and may have the three best players in the American League, let alone the AL Central, and the Kansas City Royals have the most talent, and could be ready to take a Tampa Bay Rays-type move from a few years ago. I haven't even mentioned the White Sox or the Twins yet. Who wins the division?

2013 Spring Training Game #20: Indians 5, White Sox 2
Ubaldo Jimenez wasn't perfect, but he was better. The Cleveland Indians will need their starting pitching to come through in 2013 for the team to make a legitimate playoff run. While you can never count on the spring training games to guarantee success, this start was certainly a step in the right direction for the Indians' righty.

Corner of Carnegie and Ontario: Speed Kills
The Indians have gone from a slow-ish, non-athletic team that depended on walks, to an athletic, speedy team that will depend on big hits and stolen bases. Will that translate into a winning season? The team is also ripe with new leadership, that should help foster the growing number of young players that could emerge over the coming years. Will this new brand of Indians baseball mesh together under the tutelage of Terry Francona?
