It was a Cinderfella run for the Indians to the World Series in 2016. Not that they didn’t have the talent to make it to October, but the injuries they faced before and during their playoff run all around the team made their World Series berth even more improbable. But, not satisfied with just making it there, they replaced Mike Napoli with slugger Edwin Encarnacion — and they signed him to a reasonable deal with reasonable years to an already great offense.
