What if the 2013 Cleveland Indians were Disney Princes?


It's dollar dog night at the Jake tonight, folks, as the Cleveland Indians take on the scrappy Twins of Minnesota, who are hot off a 3-game sweep of the White Sox.

2. Jason Kipnis = Prince Eric (The Little Mermaid)



They're both sort of hunky and brotastic.

3. Asdrubal Cabrera = Li Shang (Mulan)



Agile. Muscular. Injury-prone.
