Ranking the 30 MLB teams on my watch - Cleveland Indians #22 of 30

The Indians 2013 season came out of nowhere and seemed like a mirage of sorts - while their key free agent signings [Nick Swisher, Michael Bourn] underperformed, the Indians beat up on weaker opponents, landed the first Wild Card spot and were promptly eliminated in the WC playoff game by the Tampa Bay Rays.

The Indians probably need Swisher and Bourn to provide a bit more offense in 2014 - and who knows if this team will be able to contend if they can't find another set of Scott Kazmir and Ubaldo Jimenez types for cheap.

Between Carlos Santana and Yan Gomes - the Indians got good production out of their catchers this past season.
