I have been watching for the Indians to sign a free agent or two and or make a significant trade. The only move so far was the free agent signing of first baseman Yonder Alonso. My first reaction was why not Logan Morrison or Matt Adams? Alonso had a great power year in 2017, but I am concerned he has hit 20 homers or better only once. The other guys have a better track record but the Indians chose Alonso. We shall see.
Free agency is just about here and the Indians have some major decisions to make. The Tribe has Brian Shaw, Jay Bruce and Carlos Santana on the market. It is no secret they will lose one or possibly two, hopefully not all three.
I had waited a little bit before posting because I believed the Indians would beat the Yankees in at least four games. I was then going to write about the Indians versus the Astros.
The big streak ended, but instead of slumping, the Indians have won four straight games. Now they are chasing the Dodgers for home field advantage for the entire post-season. A month ago this did not seem possible but here we are.
