Young Tribe core offers promise for 2016 and beyond

The season hasn't turned out the way we all wanted, but there's still hope for the future

It's Friday, everyone, and the Tribe is getting ready to host the The Angels Angels of Anaheim. While you're waiting for your nice, heaping helping of Trout, take a gander at what's going on in MLB-land:

Indians news & notes

Talkin' about the lineup, the kids, and the future | - Sometimes Terry Pluto talks to himself, and this is one of those times. He thinks that despite the Tribe's similarly bad first and second half records, the team has been more exciting in the second half for several reasons. He also has some thoughts on next year's potential lineup.

Core, contracts create optimism in Cleveland | - This season has gone so far off the rails, that it seems surreal to think back to SI's World Series predictions. But despite the overall disappointment, the strong group of youngins on desirable contracts gives us all something to look forward to.

Lindor living up to high expectations | Did the Tribe Win Last Night? - Francisco Lindor entered the league with lofty expectations and, despite those, he's managed to not only meet but surpass them. Is a Rookie of the Year award in his near future?

The rise and fall of Chris Perez | - We tend to focus on Chris Perez' pot smoking dog, but forget that he was once a pretty dominant closer. Now that Perez has retired, Zack Meisel has penned a fair and balanced retrospective. He reminds us that though Perez often carried himself like a clown, much of his "big" personality was driven by his passion to win.
