Comparing Aprils

Last season, the Indians finished 81-80, a largely disappointing season considering the lofty expectations they had entering the year.

Carlos Santana and Tyler Naquin are hitting, but Cleveland Indians are falling

Exercise your democratic rights. The Indians had an awful, awful, awful week, going just 1-5.

Just as the Indians got good news on the injury front with Michael Brantley returning to the team on Monday night, things got much, much worse.
