It's almost time for the postseason! As teams punch their tickets to the October party, we're taking a look back at their season -- giving away some Season Superlatives and also offering you a chance to learn which member of the team you actually are. 2016 may go down as the greatest year in Cleveland history. The Cavaliers came back from a 3-1 deficit to win the NBA Finals -- upsetting the Warriors and their NBA record for wins in the regular season -- and the Indians won their first division title since 2007. If they manage to win the World Series, the entire city may float away into the sky, because how could anything ever top 2016? Let's remember the Indians' season for the bright shining moments that were with this year's yearbook superlatives. This is an easy one. After all, every Indians fan changed their profile picture to Tyler Naquin's hair-standing-on-end yawp following his inside-the-park walk-off home run. Even better, there's the chance that fellow Cleveland native LeBron James willed it into existence as he was in the stands and was shown on the video board before the dramatic comeback.
With Francisco Lindor on your team, every game -- nay every ball hit into play -- presents an opportunity for a defensive gem. Lindor's range and smooth hands, combined with his superhero-like costume of amazing stirrup socks, makes his play at shortstop something nont to be missed every night. But his best came when he teamed up with Jose Ramirez . That's right: This one has throwback uniforms, a dive, a flip and, best of all, friendship.
