Best Indian 

C.C. Sabathia

Whether it's injuries, inconsistency, or just plain suckitude, the Tribe can never seem to stabilize its rotation, but thanks to C.C. Sabathia, the problem's now only four arms deep. He's earned his "ace" label, with double-digit wins each of the last seven years. Over that time he's averaged nearly 200 innings pitched, with just one short trip to the disabled list. This year was his best since his rookie year, rolling off 12 victories in the first half of the season, earning his second All-Star nod, and shaking off a rough July to finish with a career-high 19 wins and 209 strikeouts. And he still has the flattest hat brim in the league.
