Oct 6 2015OFF SEASON FOR THE TRIBE
It was an "off" season for the Indians, if you believed Sports Illustrated that the Tribe could win the World Series. At 81-80 there are positives, and consider that re-building in baseball happens all the time. Look at the playoffs that start Tuesday. Houston lost 100 games each year from 2011-13, and 92 last year. Toronto hasn't been in the post-season at all since 1993. Kansas City just won its first division title in 30 years. The Pirates were under .500 for 22 straight seasons, and now are in the playoffs for a third year in a row. See, it's easy to turn around. On the other hand the Indians have no money to spend, were 29th in attendance, and how the lowest attendance in Jacobs/Progressive Field history. Never mind, this may not be easy at all.
