"Built to Win it All"

 

The beauty of sports is and always will be,

once the ball is put in play, there is no

written script for what will happen next.

 

The Indians came within perhaps a brief rain delay

of winning their first World Series since 1948.

They nearly did it without two of their

top starting pitchers(Carrasco,Salazar) and

perhaps their best hitter(Brantley). Of course

on the other side of it,they received unexpected

monster years from Mike Napoli and Rajah Davis.

 

As amazing as their post season was,

the off season, which included the stunning

signing of free agent slugger Edwin Encarnacion

was terrific.

An under the radar move was the signing of

lefty reliever Boone Logan. Another lefty at

a pretty high price($5million)when the team

already has Andrew Miller. It's almost overkill,

but it's a perfect example of how the front

office is trying to prepare this team to deal

issues in the upcoming season.(ie:a fatigue

factor for the bullpen from last year.)

 

In baseball one can always count on some form

of adversity to occur over the long season,

but this Indians roster appears to have taken

all of this into account. The Indians don't

need career years from their players to

contend for a championship.(Although a career

year from Lindor, is a scary thought in a good

way.)

The Indians need to play follow the leader

(Francona)and 2017 could be as great as

1948.
