The Indians finished with a record of 68-94 and a run differential of -178, second worst in baseball and the worst by a Cleveland team since 1991. It takes a lot of things going wrong for a team to be that bad, but the main culprit for 2012’s failures was the starting rotation.

Derek Lowe was acquired by the Indians just after the 2011 World Series ended. He had one year left on his previous contract, but the Braves were no longer in his services.
