Rebuilding is essential in sports. Every team does it at one point, and the Indians seem to be doing it right now. But are they really? It seems as if the Indians are a staple for grooming players that go on to have equal or better success elsewhere. Players like Manny Ramirez, Jim Thome, Cliff Lee, and C.C. Sabathia all excel for the Indians. But for most of them, they look for winning success elsewhere. Along with the players listed above, there are laundry lists of stars that have played for the Indians in the past ten years or so.
But now the Indians find themselves in the basement of the MLB. No, they are clearly not the worst team, and should not be considered so. But, they are not exactly in favorable position. The Indians have little to look forward to for the future. And when the exciting future gets here, they will be on their way out before the fans of Cleveland realize it. No wonder why LeBron James wore a Yankees hat to a playoff game in Cleveland.
