Bonus prediction: I think the Indians will lack power overall and the bullpen will struggle, but they will have great defense and pitching. Carrasco will win the AL Cy Young while Lindor and Kipnis both receive MVP votes. Brantley will return in May and start slow but pick up and have his typical season. Gomes will rebound and provide a big boost to the offense.
