Zach McAllister gives Cleveland 6 solid innings and the Indians beat the Detroit Tigers 3-2.

The Cleveland Indians were only a couple of wins away from taking the A.L. Central last season. Just imagine if they could have beaten the Detroit Tigers last year.

Top of the order: Where you at?

The Indians have had a rather disappointing beginning to the 2014 season, sitting at 7-7 and fourth place in the AL Central. These early season woes are reminiscent of last season, when the Tribe went 8-13 out of the gate. What has also been a parallel to last year is the top of the batting order’s inability to produce for the Tribe. Specifically, I am talking about Asdrubal Cabrera...

On Asdrubal Cabrera, Francisco Lindor and wanting good things too soon

WATCH: Jeff Francoeur victim of great prank by teammates

Clubhouse pranks are as much of a part of baseball as peanuts and Cracker Jack and as far as this one goes…it’s a winner.
