New Look Cleveland Indians Have Their Eyes on October

The AL Central is shaping up to be one of the toughest divisions in all of baseball, and this offseason has only cemented that notion. While Jeff Samardzija went from the north to the south side of the Windy City to join the Chicago White Sox, Melky Cabrera joined him in the less-famous pinstriped uniforms. The Royals are coming off a storybook season and playoff run; and though...
