The Cleveland Indians didn’t play a game in November, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t plenty to talk about when it came to rumors and reports.

November is always an odd month for Cleveland Indians fans. Especially if the team doesn’t play late into October.

The month did not bring any major moves, but did bring plenty of rumors that have Indians fans talking.

Lonnie Chisenhall is also a Pittsburgh Pirate now, so that kinda stinks.

December is nearly upon us and that means rumors begin turning into reality. But before that begins, let’s take a look back at some of our top posts from this month.
