Ah, baseball season. For me, there are few feelings like it. Spring Training represents a new era every year for me; one filled with hopefulness and optimism. The recent purchasing of an undisclosed publication taught me something that put a damper on this anticipation: The Cleveland Indians are the worst team in Major League Baseball.
30th of 30, the bottom-feeders, the lowest of the low. "This simply cannot be true," I thought. Yes, we were no good at all last season, finishing 69-93, but hey, we still finished better than the Kansas City Royals (by two games). Looking at the roster, while relatively weak in some areas, it is a far-cry from the worst in the Majors. The optimist in me would like to give Tribe fans some hope for this season...or maybe just for myself.
This presentation will highlight the many reasons why I believe the Cleveland Indians will not be the worst in the league; and some reasons why we could surprise people.
