Hope and Faith: How the Cleveland Indians Can Win the World Series

Dan Fox

The Indians badly underachieved a year ago, but smart management has a way of bringing teams back.

"We're a front office that craves information, craves it in every formWe're going to use that information and what's important is the framework you put that information into, how you weight it, and the decisions you make."
--Indians General Manager Mark Shapiro during the Fantasy Summit last month at Jacobs Field.

Joe's in Arizona for spring training, and he has good news for the locals.

The Arizona Diamondbacks haven't been all that relevant since an 84-78 season in 2003. However, the now-departed Mike Rizzo's tremendous work is about to bear fruit in the form of as many as five drafted-and-developed hitters forming the core of a potentially excellent lineup. While their reacquisition of Randy Johnson this winter has the smell of "sideshow" about it, Johnson actually may well be a perfect #2 to Brandon Webb's #1, making the trade for him less about selling tickets every fifth day and more about selling them in October.

Christina takes off the propeller beanie and talks about why she's excited about the season to come.

I'm an A's fan. That doesn't mean I turn a blind eye to my team's weaknesses-last October, in assessing the likely outcome of the ALCS, I came to the personally glum conclusion that the Tigers would win. (A critic would note that I was too optimistic even then, as I picked the Tigers in six, instead of in four.) But with the latest snowfall melting, and as I ponder the season to come, I am reminded again that hope and faith is an A's fan's bread and butter.
