I think they will have a good year, and at times make me feel like this:

but in the end they will just get my hopes up only to not win a world series yet again and make me feel like this:

But the question is will they win more than 84 games which may make her happy:

Their rotation of Corey Kluber, Dannys Salazar, Carlos Carrasco, Trevor Baur and either Josh Tomlin or Cody Anderson should win almost 60 games themselves.

As long as the middle relief can successfully get the came to closer Cody Allen, another 30 wins seem likely. I trust Tito to put together the bullpen.

Scoring runs is a little scary especially if Michael Brantley is out for a while or is ineffective when he returns.

Regardless I say:

The Indians won their 85th this weekend to make my prediction correct.

Also, the conclusion is unfortunately eerily correct. This has been one of the most fun Indians teams in recent memory, but with them losing Salazar and Carrasco in the last few weeks they have virtually no chance of winning even their first round series.

Rotation of Kluber, Carrasco, Salazar and sometimes Bauer = chance to win World Series

Rotation of Kluber, Bauer, Tomlin, and sometimes Clevinger = early exit of play-offs

today's rainout allows me to make good

Despite two of our young studs (bird, mitchell) suffering grave injury, I still feel frisky about our chances in the AL Least.

Rotation is OK 1-4...CC looks as fucking useless as he's been over the last 3 years and OF COURSE they reward him with the #5 starter job

Bullpen should be nasty, as discussed.

Lineup will likely be hampered by the human vaginal strain aka jacoby ellsbury at or near the top of the order

I actually like the rest of the lineup, and didi gregorious is my sleeper all star pic...check that, i think chase headley is toast...rest of the bunch should be ok

Should be an interesting year, but fuckin a this ownership group seems determined to make the stadium experience as expensive and sterile as possible...i might drop my tickets after this year /ctz /yeah ok :eyeroll:

IF they can stay healthy, over 85 wins is EASY money

PRAY BAWR!!!


missed it by one game
