Status Quo is not how Tribe should go

Before the start of the 2014 season, the Cleveland Indians allowed 340.2 innings pitched from starting pitchers Ubaldo Jimenez and Scott Kazmir to walk out their door, while only banking heavily on a natural progression from their young starting pitchers to shoulder the burden left behind.
