Terry Pluto: 20 predictions for the Indians

19. Asdrubal Cabrera will not be traded as the Tribe will win enough games early in the season to at least dream about the playoffs. 

20. And that will happen because Ubaldo Jimenez will join Masterson in the 12-15 victory club, as he will keep his ERA around 4.00 thanks to throwing more strikes and pitching with some poise and confidence. 

AND ONE OBSERVATION: Francona will grow hair before he says anything really negative about a player in public — and he’s been bald for a long time. 

So Francona is completely bald.....not just on his head?

2. By June, only one of these three will still be in the rotation: Scott Kazmir, Brett Myers and Zach McAllister.


Kazmir apparently has an abdominal strain, so this one is right on track.

18. Trevor Bauer will be pushing for a spot in the rotation by July 4.
He was pushing for a spot in the rotation by January 4, wasn't he?

I'm watching the Jays-Indians game right now, and it kind of hurts my heart to see Tito in another uniform.
