Indians are done, but how much progress came at Progressive?

Major League Baseball’s postseason starts tonight, and the Cleveland Indians won’t be a part of it this year. It’s easy to take that at face value and say that the Tribe regressed this season.

The Final Countdown: The Tribe and the Twins
