In his rundown of what each American League team needs to accomplish this winter, his assessment of the Tribe starts with: "A lot less than you think."
Keri heaps praise on Asdrubal Cabrera and Carlos Santana, as well as a starting rotation that should leave hitters pounding balls into the dirt all summer. He also points out what your Aunt Tilda already knows: They need a stick at first base, and Carlos Pena sure would look pretty there.
Happily, he sees 2012 not as another work-in-progress, but the year that a little aggressiveness by GM Chris Antonetti could have us leap-frogging the mostly woeful AL Central pack.
November hype gets you nothing in April, but it does make winter beer taste better.
