Cleveland Indians: 0-162?
BASEBALL IS NOTHING if it isn't acres of statistical projections. So as a Pirates fan well adjusted to losing seasons, I think it's important to note that the Cleveland Indians have opened the season with five losses and nary a win. Based on my carefully researched theory of relativity between the Pirates and Indians, if you project the Tribe's 0-5 record to date, it would be fair to project the possibility that the team will lose all of its 162 games this year. Of course, if it happens to win tomorrow's game, it improves the final projection to a more socially acceptable 26-136. (I may be off a game or two because I'm not good at math.) Never lose hope even if your team is forever losing games. I hope this is helpful to get you through the remaining cold days of spring until you can get out into the yard to project the grubs that will strike next.
