Second Thoughts: Swisher, Bourn have not been up to par

Over the winter, Michael Bourn and Nick Swisher were given a combined $106 million (with the possibility of up to $132 million) to play for the Indians for the next 4-6 years.

It's the turning point at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario

There comes a time in every Cleveland Indians’ baseball season when you can look back and say, “that was when Tribe’s ship sunk.” I’ve done it every year that I can remember here at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario, and unfortunately, it always happens before the Indians can hoist up that World Series trophy.
