April Showers Brought Season-Long Swoon 12 Years Ago

April 16, 2014 |

A dozen years ago, the Indians were just starting a new era of Tribe baseball.  Long gone were Albert Belle, Carlos Baerga and Manny Ramirez, but it was just prior to the 2002 season that Cleveland said goodbye to Roberto Alomar, Kenny Lofton, Dave Burba, Marty Cordova and Juan Gonzalez.  The long-dominant Indians were a team in transition and were picked by most to finish in third place in the American League Central Division.
