On June 15, 2007, the Chicago Cubs selected 20-year old SP Orlando "Biceps" Silva with the third overall pick in the amateur draft. Three days later the Cleveland Indians obtained Silva for six players.

Silva seemed to have it all: high upside (20/79 rating), 96-98 MPH velocity, four pitches, a strong Work Ethic (16), the top Leadership rating (20) and a world of potential.

Like the Cubs, the Indians started Silva at A ball, and he quickly zipped through...

2007: A Contender Emerges

Part 2: Winning the Division

The 2007 Indians Dynasty

Posted 01-15-2013 at 04:56 PM by IndiansGuy57

Playing OOTP 8, I took control of the 2007 Indians as GM. I immediately set out to revamp the team. I made the playoffs my first year but lost to the despised Yankees that season.
