It's one thing to breakdown every player used by a good team, but to go through every cog in a broken-down machine like the 2012 Cleveland Indians is not very pleasant. But it is Jim Piascik's sworn and solemn duty to rank every player used by the Indians this year as we hit the home stretch, so read on if you want to see who is the best (and who is the worst). Just don't expect to feel good after...
