Cleveland Indians v St Louis Cardinals

Roughly one week ago, Cleveland Indians president Mark Shapiro discussed the addition of outfielder Brandon Moss, saying that the veteran slugger has been “as productive as hoped” who is “better than we thought defensively.” Fast forward to today, and we have ourselves a bit of a contradictory report, stating that the Tribe would love to
