Cy Kluber or Sigh..Kluber?


There's a whole lot of buzz in Cleveland lately. And today in particular, that buzz is surrounding the one sport that is dormant right now. Sure, the Browns are in first place, the Cavaliers are a hot ticket in town, even the other football team that this area cheers for picked up a huge Big Ten win.

But today is about one individual and one individual alone.

Back in 2008, it almost a given what was going to happen. The Cleveland Indians were going to nail down their second American League Cy Young award winner in a row. Cliff Lee had an incredible season and unless all the writers decided to ignore the facts and give the award to Roy Halladay based on career consistency and name recognition, the Arkansas native was going to take home the trophy.

And he did, almost without a doubt, at least in Indians' fans minds.
