Indians are done, but how much progress came at Progressive?

Major League Baseball’s postseason starts tonight, and the Cleveland Indians won’t be a part of it this year. It’s easy to take that at face value and say that the Tribe regressed this season.

A Christmas newsletter from Believing Since 1999

Dear Believing Since 1999 Readers, As 2013 begins its final descent into history, Christmas is upon us once again.
