The First Half for the Indians – Four Takeaways from the Good and Bad (Part Three)

The 2018 season for the Indians took quite a turn on Thursday morning when it was announced that the team acquired closer Brad Hand and reliever Adam Cimber from the Padres for prospect Francisco Mejia.

From a team that couldn’t seem to get out of its own way when it came to their bullpen to now one with two closers, just like that the Indians appear to be a team that now looks like they can make a run in the American League against teams like the Yankees, Red Sox, Astros and Mariners.

We’ve covered quite a bit of the first half over the last few days, with two other parts of our three-part series on the first half, covering already eight takeaways from various aspects of the first half.

Today as we set up the second half, we wrap up the first half with four final takeaways, getting you ready for what should be a fun ride for the Tribe as they look to get back to the promise land of the Fall Classic.
