This is a tough one. So.........

Indians Notes

• Eric Hosmer won Carlos Santana’s gold glove.

• The Indians have a number of minor league free agents, including some guy who goes by “INF Michael Martinez”—who could that be?

• Rosey is spending his offseason doing an Indians puzzle. #RoseyForPresident

• Castrovince is spending his admiring and making puns about a new warning track. (The race to sign Ubaldo Jimenez is now in its third day.)

Non-Indians Notes

• This is a bummer: John Lackey wants to pitch in 2018.

• Curtis Granderson, who looked like “INF Michael Martinez” this postseason shouted “SAME!

• Jeff Sullivan discovered what we knew: The Royals lack talent.

• He also found the worst called ball of the season.

• And a........ Kershaw eephus!?

• George Springer is on the cover of SI again, and this time he brought his tiny buddy.
