Everything is Awesome: 2014 Year in Review
Another exciting year has come and gone in Cleveland, with plenty of highs and lows at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario. There was a Cy Young Award winner on the mound and two big offseason signings going dud. There was an MVP candidate in the outfield and a former ace getting hurt and eventually traded. All in all, while 2014 did not end in a playoff berth like 2013, it was still a special year, one that Jim Piascik remembers through the lens of The LEGO Movie.

Recent history is poor for teams buying injured starting pitchers
It should come as a surprise to no baseball fan that the Indians went shopping for a bargain in free agency this winter, but it was at least mildly shocking that they came up with Gavin Floyd. Floyd has missed most of the past two seasons with injuries and the Indians are pretty well stocked with starting pitching. There are many questions that might be on a Cleveland fan’s mind, but one that is hard to answer is how we should expect Floyd to perform. IBI newcomer Craig Fletcher tries to answer that in his debut piece...
