2. So Much for Revenge
After last October’s meltdown against the Yankees, the Indians were looking forward to exacting some revenge for the AL Divisional loss, but instead were smacked in the face with two tough to swallow losses to even out their mark at 17-17 on the year.
There’s a reason why many feel the Yankees are better than the Tribe in 2017, they have a solid young team with enough vets that have not only a scary lineup but enough pitching to maybe again be the best team in the American League.
Three games in May won’t truly determine which one of these teams is the best in the American League, but the fact the Indians really could have won both Friday and more so Sunday’s game really puts a bad taste in their mouths about where they shape up right now playing the pinstripes.
