The morning after the night before

And we all said, “Wait until next year.”

The more I think about last night’s crushing defeat, the more I think it was probably for the best. While I wish the Indians could have gone deeper into the playoffs, they truthfully don’t possess the “full package” required to get bigger jobs done. Translation: we need clutch bats, and right now, we don’t have them. We could have won, oh, two-three against the Red Sox, but I doubt it would have gone much further. And until and unless we can beat Detroit…

Still, it was a thrilling September for Cleveland baseball fans. For the first time since 1997 (when the Tribe lost the Series to another Florida team), I can honestly say that “waiting until next year” isn’t so terrible.

Waiting for the weekend, however, is pretty much unbearable right now. Bring it!

    :-( So sorry about the Tribe, sweetie. Even I was getting into the excitement! They definitely need a little “tweaking”. If they can get the kinks worked out, next year looks pretty promising! We’ll hang our caps up for the Indians for now, but let’s keep our helmets on for the Browns! ;-)

    Come on weekend – my sistah needs some down time!!!

    Scintillating analysis of the Tribes woe there Ms Fink, quite well stated! (You are right up there with Peter King as my favorite, will not miss morning read!) For the Brewers, of our home State, they consider it a winning season if they finish ahead of the Cubs….Go Brew Crew!

    Home Sweet Home … Though I am not sure what day it is nor the time. :)
