Do the Indians need a left-handed starter?

And we're not talking just the Fall Classic either, but an entire regular season without one. Fast forward 30 years, and the Indians head into the 2014 season without a southpaw in their rotation. IBI Tribe beat reporter Jim Berdysz wonders if the team should add a lefty into the mix.
