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!
