October is nearly upon us but first we want to take a look back at the top Cleveland Indians stories from the month of September.

That means the Cleveland Indians are set to being postseason baseball at the end of the week, although fans will get their October baseball fix all week thanks to a wild finish in the National League.

Things are about to get a bit more hectic after what was a very casual month of September for the Indians. The division was clinched but it was never in doubt. However, some storylines did still stand out.
