Front Office News
Rajai Davis was not given a contract so we, as Indians fans will have to thank him and always remember his 8th inning heroics in Game 7 of last year’s World Series. Thank you Rajai, we’ll miss you.

Spring Training in Goodyear
Music hit the ears of many baseball fans this past week as pitchers and catchers reported for teams. Basically, winter is over and the greatest sport in history is back. With some of the best pitchers in the league in Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, and Andrew Miller, this season is already looking good.
Indians look to bounce back and return to the world series
The 3-1 jokes are old and dead. Now it’s a new season and the Tribe is ready to go. Once again, the Indians are favorites to go to and win the World Series. This team is the best group of players we’ve seen since the 90’s greats of Thome, Lofton, and Vizquel. With how loose and fun the guys and the club keep their demeanor, the team is in good shape. Here are some photos featured on the Indians snapchat for your amusement.
Returning to the lineup
Michael Brantley may finally play in an Indians uniform again. It’s been too long since we last saw him shagging fly balls out on the grass in Progressive Field. This year, though it looks like he will finally be able to play and make a great contribution to the team. How do we feel about that? Well, we’re all smiles.
