JOSE MESA RUMORS & GOSSIP
The Cleveland Indians clinch the American league Central Division title in a 3-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles. It was just Cleveland’s 123rd game of the season, giving the Indians the record for the fastest team to clinch a division.
The victory gave the Tribe an 86-37 record and pushed their lead over second place Kansas City to 23 ½ games. Orel Hershiser earned his 13th win...
For the next 26 days, DTTWLN will profile and break down the roster of arguably the most exciting sports team that Cleveland has ever seen; the 1995 Cleveland Indians.

The 2013 BBWAA Hall of Fame ballot is out, and there are several Phillies on the ballot. Try not to laugh. They are:
Who will get votes? I'm sure Kenny Lofton will get some, Curt Schilling will get some, and Dale Murphy will fall short...
As you may have noticed if you read the site regularly, I like to make lists. As a separate part of the All-Time Indians section of the site I will be adding position by position rankings of the top ten Indians of all time. Rather than writing individual bios for each player on this page, each name will be linked to the bio I have already written for them, assuming they have one...
