CBS Likes Indians as Sleeper in Central

You can imagine my shock today when I clicked on the baseball preview on and saw the Cleveland Indians represented in first place and major postseason awards.

Three CBS analysts have the Indians picked to win the AL Central ahead of the Twins. The fourth has us in 4th place ahead of only Kansas City.

Those same three analysts have tabbed Eric Wedge as the AL Manager of the Year which would be the 2nd time in three years he has won the award. All found in the Award section are Shin-Soo Choo and Asdrubal Cabrera as Surprise of the Year, Victor Martinez and Travis Hafner as Comeback Player of the Year and Hafner as Disappointment of the Year.

There wasn't any love for Cliff Lee or Fausto Carmona to pick up the tradition of the Tribe's ace winning the Cy Young Award for the 3rd straight season.

Full predictions can be found below and remember, only three days until Opening Day!
