CLEVELAND cheap Jason Kipnis jersey stood near his locker, already showing signs of an early fall cleanout, and sized up a season of major momentum swings and minor fulfillment.
The Indians jerseys fell way short of expectations and the playoffs. Unsatisfying.
Still, despite spending just two days over .500 during the regular season and getting there again with a 3 1 win over the Boston Red Sox jerseys on Sunday to finish 81 80, Kipnis offered a promising outlook.
close, the All Star second baseman said. not far away. years after a late charge put them in the postseason, the Indians jerseys packed up their bats in early October and will spend a portion of their offseason pondering what might have been.
What if sensational shortstop cheap Francisco Lindor jersey, whose arrival in June kick started the club, would have begun the season in the majors and not Triple A Columbus?
What if the club had traded disappointing free agent signings Nick Swisher and cheap Michael Bourn jersey and their swollen salaries earlier?
What if they had started 14 7 in April and not 7 14?
But a second half surge the Indians jerseys went 33 26 after Aug. 1 provided positivity and perhaps a glimpse of the future. I
t certainly did for Kipnis, who rebounded from an injury plagued 2014 and re established himself as one of the AL best all around players.
definitely got a good foundation here, said Kipnis, who then offered a challenge to Cleveland front office. definitely got good players and now, could be just one piece away, one bat away, one pitcher away and I think it be important for us to go out and get it. Indians cheap mlb jerseys for sale jerseys, who haven won a World Series since 1948, have a title drought that stretches over generations of fans who cling to hope and the promise of next year. While there optimism for 2016, here are five things that worked and didn work for the Indians jerseys in 2015:
KEY HITS: Cleveland pitching staff kept the Indians jerseys in games and the playoff race until the final week. Reigning Cy Young winner cheap Corey Kluber jersey pitched far better than his 9 16 record and in cheap Carlos Carrasco jersey (14 12) and cheap Danny Salazar jersey (14 10), the Indians jerseys have two of the league best young power starters.
The Indians jerseys became the first team in AL history to have four pitchers with at least 170 strikeouts.
A STAR IS BORN: Lindor energized Cleveland lineup, infield and clubhouse. The 21 year old was called up in June and played like a 10 year veteran. He batted .313 with 12 homers and 51 RBIs, seemed to make a stunning defensive play every game and didn hide his passion. He could edge Houston cheap Carlos Correa jersey for AL Rookie of the Year.
you take his body of work, it kind of had to find someone else who has done better, Indians jerseys manager Terry Francona said. know the kid Correa has been really good, but Frankie been across the board, defensively, offensively, on the bases, power. He done it all. ERRORS: The Indians jerseys didn do well enough in their own division, going 32 43 against Kansas City, Minnesota, Detroit and Chicago.
SHOPPING LIST: The lack of a bona fide power hitter in the middle of their lineup doomed the Indians jerseys, who need to add a slugger this winter. cheap Carlos Santana jersey doesn belong in the cleanup spot, and a true No. 4 hitter will only help Lindor, Kipnis and cheap Michael Brantley jersey, who had another strong season before being shelved by a shoulder injury.
EMPTY SEATS: The Indians jerseys did a fabulous job remodeling Progressive Field, but the makeover didn lead to a bump in attendance as the club drew just 1,388,905 fans the lowest attendance mark in the ballpark 22 year history.
