So, did the Indians choke?
After going 1-6 in their last 7 with the opportunity to take the wildcard by winning a few games, I can't help but feel they did. What does everyone else think?
Overall, I guess I'm happy with the year we've had, even though the end has left a bitter, bitter taste. And I hate the fact that the achilles heel of the team, 1B, 3B and RF was probably the reason for the lack of a playoff berth. I feel like we should have tried a lot harder to improve those spots. And why trade Gerut, were you trying to make sure you couldn't even platoon Blake? Blake needs to be on the bench - a lot - next year. I'm assuming we won't be so lucky as to be rid of him. Could we possibly do like when you have a dog you don't want anymore? Drive him out to the middle of the country and let him out of the car? "Go on Casey. Get out of here!"
