Here’s to a great week!
A look into the Tribe’s financial picture and losing Carlos Santana and Jay Bruce. From Terry Pluto:
The Indians will never admit it, but the quick exit from the playoffs has had an impact on this season’s payroll. Blowing the 2-0 lead against the New York Yankees in the best-of-five American League Division Series meant the season ended on a downer.
That has hurt off-season ticket sales. The Indians are ahead of a year ago, but it’s not the tidal wave of enthusiasm that could have come from a deep playoff run.
Tons of young talent at SS and Lindor is as good as any.
