Indians fans are petrified of the SI cover jinx

2015 MLB preview featured in this week's Sports Illustrated
Tuesday March 24th, 2015

The Indians are featured on one of four Sports Illustrated covers this week as the World Series favorites. This is not welcome news in Cleveland. 

In 1987, when the Indians were SI's preseason pick, they finished with the worst record in baseball (61-101). So Tribe fans are scared to death of the cover jinx. Sorry.
