Now, Perez is pointing the finger at himself and his teammates. #Indians Chris Perez: ”The front office stepped up and now it’s time for us to get it done. There’s no reason why we can’t win this year.” — Tom Withers (@twithersAP) February 16, 2013 Perez continued, this time speaking on the difference between this club, and Indians’ teams of the past. Perez: ”It’s a totally different atmosphere, and for the guys who have been here for the last four or five years, it’s refreshing.” #tribe — Tom Withers (@twithersAP) February 16, 2013 The Indians’ opening day lineup is expected to have four new faces with the additions of Michael Bourn, Nick Swisher, Drew Stubbs, and Mark Reynolds.
