All-Time Indians Team

The Cleveland Indians are one of the most storied franchises in the AL Central.  In fact, they have won more AL Central titles (7) than any other team in that division.  Not surprisingly, their all-time team is solid; it includes six Hall of Famers (plus two more that could be enshrined- Thome and Lofton).  Remarkably, five Indians Hall of Famers did not make our list which is a testament to how deep this team is.  The most difficult choices for us to make were at 2B (Alomar or Lajoie), 3B (Keltner or Rosen) and OF (Doby or Lofton).  The Bob's form a formidable pitching duo that matches up with some of the better ones out there.  Addie Joss and Early Wynn would make the cut on most teams but they're both relegated to honorable mention on our list.  So check out our All-Time Cleveland Indians team and tell us what you think.

  1. Not a bad team. Great pitching history. Early Wynn, Luis Tiant and Sam McDowell left off the list. I pushed for Larry Doby, but was outvoted for Lofton.
