Congratulations to Cleveland Indians General Manager Mark Shapiro for being named the 2007 Major League Baseball Executive of the Year by the Sporting News. The Cleveland Indians tied the Boston Red Sox for the best record in all of baseball by winning 96 games. They beat the New York Yankees in a best of 5 series in the playoffs, but fell short of going to the World Series when they lost to the Red Sox in 7 games after being up 3 games to 1. Mark last won this award after the 2005 season when his Indians won 93 games but failed to make the playoffs due to a collapse, losing 6 out of their last 7 games.
Mark, want to win it two years in a row?
It will not be enough to just get into the World Series…you gotta win the World Series!
How will he do it?
Rock n' Roll baby, Rock n' Roll!
