Starting Lineup
  1. '06 Grady Sizemore, CF: .290/.375/.533/.907, 28 HR, 53 2B, 134 R, 11 3B, 22 SB, 6.6 bWAR
  2. '99 Omar Vizquel, SS: .333/.397/.436/.833, 5 HR, 36 2B, 112 R, 42 SB, 6.0 bWAR
  3. '18 Jose Ramirez, 2B: .270/.387/.552/.939, 39 HR, 38 2B, 105 RBI, 110 R, 34 SB, 7.9 bWAR
  4. '95 Albert Belle, RF: .317/.401/.690/1.091, 50 HR, 52 2B, 126 RBI, 121 R, 377 TB, 7.0 bWAR
  5. '59 Minnie Minoso, LF: .302/.377/.468/.846, 21 HR, 32 2B, 92 RBI, 92 R, 5.5 bWAR
  6. '59 Tito Francona, DH: .363/.414/.566/.980, 20 HR, 17 2B, 79 RBI, 4.8 bWAR
  7. '78 Andre Thornton, 1B: .262/.377/.516/.893, 33 HR, 22 2B, 105 RBI, 97 R, 5.4 bWAR
  8. '48 Ken Keltner, 3B: .297/.395/.522/.917, 31 HR, 24 2B, 119 RBI, 91 R, 6.1 bWAR
  9. '70 Ray Fosse, C: .307/.361/.469/.830, 18 HR, 17 2B, 61 RBI, 5.2 bWAR
I feel like this lineup is pretty well balanced. Sizemore, Vizquel, Minoso, and Fosse are all gold-glove fielders, Sizemore, Ramirez, Belle, Thornton, and Keltner can all smack 30+ home runs for me, Sizemore, Vizquel, Ramirez, and Minoso are all threats on the basepaths. The only guy that doesn't really hit for a great average is Thornton, and the lowest OPS on the team is my gold glove catcher at .830. Five of my nine guys have a .900+ OPS, and three of the four that don't are gold glove guys who still have plus bats.

Bench
  1. '14 Yan Gomes, C: .278/.313/.472/.785, 21 HR, 25 2B, 74 RBI, 4.0 bWAR
  2. '80 Miguel Dilone, OF: .341/.375/.432/.807, 30 2B, 9 3B, 82 R, 61 SB, 3.0 bWAR
  3. '04 Ronnie Belliard, IF: .282/.348/.426/.774, 12 HR, 48 2B, 78 R, 3.4 bWAR
  4. '95 Paul Sorrento, 1B/LF: .235/.336/.511/.847, 25 HR, 79 RBI, 0.4 bWAR
My bench isn't super deep, but I still think I have a few players here. Gomes is one of the better backup catching options that was drafted, Dilone is able to reach and steal bases at an extremely high rate, despite being a subpar fielder. Belliard can cover third, second, and first base for me along with providing solid gap power, and Sorrento provides a great pinch hitting power bat off of my bench, along with being able to spot start at both 1B and LF.

Starting Rotation
  1. '17 Corey Kluber, RHP: 18-4, 2.25 ERA, 2.50 FIP, 0.86 WHIP, 5 CG, 3 SHO, 11.7 K/9, 1.6 BB/9, 8.1 bWAR
  2. '65 Sam McDowell, RHP: 17-11, 2.18 ERA, 2.08 FIP, 1.13 WHIP, 14 CG, 3 SHO, 10.7 K/9, 5.9 H/9, 8.2 bWAR
  3. '18 Trevor Bauer, RHP: 12-6, 2.21 ERA, 2.44 FIP, 1.09 WHIP, 11.3 K/9, 6.9 H/9, 0.5 HR/9, 5.7 bWAR
  4. '19 Shane Bieber, RHP: 15-8, 3.28 ERA, 3.32 FIP, 1.05 WHIP, 3 CG, 2 SHO, 10.9 K/9, 1.7 BB/9, 5.0 bWAR
  5. '54 Mike Garcia, RHP: 19-8, 2.64 ERA, 2.55 FIP, 1.12 WHIP, 13 CG, 5 SHO, 0.2 HR/9, 4.9 bWAR
I think my rotation is pretty deep, especially my top-3. Lot of strikeout guys in there, with Garcia serving as my "Tomlin-esque" guy that is going to rely on his control and fielders to get him deep into games. All five guys can go extremely deep into games if need be, and outside of McDowell, have pretty solid overall control. McDowell makes up for his lack of command with near-unhittable stuff. My main flaw is that I lack a dominant lefty starter, but Cleveland lore isn't very rich in those anyways, so I'll let it slide.

Bullpen
  1. '16 Andrew Miller, LHP: 4-0, 1.55 ERA, 1.53 FIP, 0.55 WHIP, 14.3 K/9, 4.3 H/9, 1.4 bWAR
  2. '95 Jose Mesa, RHP: 3-0, 1.13 ERA, 2.70 FIP, 1.03 WHIP, 46 SV, 8.2 K/9, 3.9 bWAR
  3. '11 Vinnie Pestano, RHP: 1-2, 2.32 ERA, 2.67 FIP, 1.04 WHIP, 12.2 K/9, 2.2 bWAR
  4. '18 Brad Hand, LHP: 0-1, 2.28 ERA, 3.23 FIP, 1.15 WHIP, 8 SV, 13.3 K/9, 0.9 bWAR
  5. '97 Paul Assenmacher, LHP: 5-0, 2.94 ERA, 3.25 FIP, 1.18 WHIP, 9.7 K/9, 1.5 bWAR
  6. '66 Gary Bell, RHP: 14-15, 3.22 ERA, 2.98 FIP, 1.14 WHIP, 6.9 K/9, 4.2 bWAR
  7. '16 Dan Otero, RHP: 5-1, 1.53 ERA, 2.33 FIP, 0.91 WHIP, 7.3 K/9, 2.6 bWAR
My bullpen is anchored by the best reliever in Indians history in Andrew Miller, along with Jose Mesa, one of the very best righty relievers. Pestano and Hand are the next two up as RHP/LHP guys, followed then by Assenmacher and Otero. Gary Bell provides me an excellent long relief and spot starter option.


So I think I did alright overall. Would've liked to get a lefty in the rotation instead of maybe Mike Garcia, and my bench depth isn't the greatest. Guys like Dilone and Sorrento weren't good fielders, so the days where they are out there might not be the best for my defense. I do really like my starting rotation.
