At this point, we're going to go ahead and assume Cleveland is cursed. On Tuesday morning, as the Seattle Mariners and Cleveland Indians played an afternoon game, an earthquake hit the East Coast. Centered in Virginia, the quake was felt up and down the coast, and as far west as Cleveland. Mariners reporters at the game tweeted about feeling the press box shake, though the game was not interrupted.â†µ
