Cleveland News

Who's the Indians Fifth Starter? | indians.com — Bastian talks through Cleveland's three big questions for 2015. Stop me if you've heard these: filling out the rotation, right field, and defense. I think Bastian is terrific at his job but...sheesh. Opening day can't come fast enough.

Who will be the starting right fielder? | cleveland.com — Hoynes himself as identified some big questions such as...what's going to happen in right field? If I were a beat writer I think I'd try to sneak one through about, say, Brantley's role being unsettled going into spring.

Match.com is advertising in the Indians website carousel | indians.com — Are these people baseball fans? Just local? Who's going to go on a date with one of them and report back?

Kluber's focus firmly on 2015 | indians.com — Rest assured, Kluber is not resting on his laurels. Quote Yan Gomes:

I think Gomes is doing the best he can here, same as Bastian but...sheesh. Opening Day can't come soon enough.
