Tribe Needs: Looking Ahead to 2017
in 2016, the Cleveland Indians were one win away from achieving their ultimate goal of becoming World Series Champions. now i’m going to look ahead and determine what they have to do–specifically, what moves they need to make–in order to claim the title next year.
the good news is they don’t require a complete overhaul. in fact, they’re luckier than most teams because the Indians are going to retain the majority of their 2016 roster, including all of their core players. not only that, but the players who were injured in October/November will also be starting the upcoming season at full health. (knock on wood.) so if they can just add a few more pieces, then the Indians should be primed and ready for another run towards a championship. in the meantime, i’m taking on the role of the front office.
