It's gonna be a long walk home
The Indians are on the road this week, playing two in Toronto and two in Boston.
Me? I’m in Cleveland, which disrupts my ability to provide you with the lineups and daily pregame minutia.
But feel free to keep the discussion of all things Tribe going in the comments section below. Where do you think this team, out the gate with a 9-16 start, is headed this season?
I’ll say this much: It’s going to be impossible to put together a prolonged winning streak unless the Indians get more reliable performances from their setup men. And even when and if that problem is solved, the shakiness on the defensive end and the continuing struggles with men in scoring position are potential cripplers, as well.
It’s certainly early enough to right this thing — especially in a division led by a 14-11 club — but it all starts with that back end of the ‘pen and it must start right about… now.
