IBI Power Poll: Your 2014 Indians predictions are...
In 2013, the Cleveland Indians did the unthinkable: they won 92 games a season after they had only won 68 games, and they made the playoffs. While Kenny Lofton is arguing THAT point, the one-game foray into the postseason realm galvanized the fanbase, and reminded many of what things could be like with a winning baseball team. On paper, the Indians didn't add much to the roster, but will their be enough internal improvement for this team to take it to the next step? Join Jim Pete for your chance and picking the Indians' future with today Power Poll-palooza!!!
