Best Comeback

Cleveland Indians

Cleveland Indians"Unfinished business." It's the fairly official motto for the Tribe's 2014 season, referencing the team's brief and rather crushing playoff appearance last fall. With a batch of nice, long-term contracts for most of our stalwarts, we're looking ahead with utmost optimism. But this season's hope is built totally on last year's fun. Manager Terry Francona (the American League's manager of the year in 2013) presided over a congregating team of talented players both young and old, all of whom bore a great sense of humor. It was thrilling to watch them play last year. And they've set up the perfect sequel with dazzling goals of playoff success. There's a very exciting sense of "comeback" around Progressive Field these days. Don't be a fool, Cleveland: Fill up those seats and cheer on the guys. Just please get rid of that atrocious Chief Wahoo logo.
