Cleveland Indians Improved Roster Makes Them World Series Favorites
The Cleveland Indians look to top their 2016 World Series appearance with a 2017 World Series win. Given that their roster looks even better in 2017, I wouldn't put it passed them. Deservedly so, the Chicago Cubs were the story of the MLB in 2016.

Jose Miguel (Torres) Fornieles (b: January 18, 1932 – d: February 11, 1998 at age 66) was a MLB pitcher from La Habana, Cuba. The right-hander pitched a one hitter in his major league debut on September 2, 1952.
In 1960, he went 10-5 with a 2.64 ERA, and tied the Cleveland Indians’ Johnny Klippstein for the league lead with fourteen saves. Fornieles also had an AL best 48 games finished, and set a major league record with seventy appearances out of the bullpen. He was the first ever recipient of the Sporting News AL Fireman of the Year Award.
Fornieles went 1-1 with a 4.76 ERA for the Twins before being released on July 22, 1963. He signed with the Cincinnati Reds in February 1964, but failed to make the club out of Spring training.
