After another weekend slumber, when will Indians wake up and hit their stride | Cleveland.com

Time for another wake-up call. From Zack Meisel:

Maybe this time, the Indians will answer it. Maybe the club will hold more meetings, more sessions to air frustration. The regular season is nearly half over, after all, and the Indians keep pressing the snooze button.

A 14-game winning streak vaulted the Indians into more prominent conversations last summer. Those franchise-record stretches don't grow on trees, though.

"This isn't last year," Tribe manager Terry Francona said Sunday. "Last year has nothing to do with this year."

The Indians suggested they understood that fact during spring training, when they discussed their desire to move past their World Series run (and ultimate disappointment). Francona mentioned how he didn't want the Summer 2017 talk to center on the Autumn 2016 accomplishments.
