  • Tough roster decisions ahead for deep Tribe

    The end goal was not achieved. After coming one victory short of a World Series triumph a year ago, the Indians envisioned a championship parade up E. 9th St. as the conclusion of this campaign. The Tribe fell short of that dream, providing a sour end to what had been a scintillating season.

    The Indians made history with a 102-win regular season that included a 22-game winning streak. They needed a third win against the Yankees in October to keep their postseason hopes alive.
  • For Tribe, too much change not a good thing
    In the wake of the Tribe's stunning collapse against the Yankees in the American League Division Series presented by Doosan, we can safely say the differences between 2016's near-triumphant postseason run and this season's disappointment, well, made a difference.
  • Indians not ready to tackle uncertain future
    While most of the Indians' roster will return in 2018, there will be a handful of interesting decisions to be made in the offseason -- like what to do with impending free agents Michael Brantley, Carlos Santana and Jay Bruce.
  • Tribe's storied season ends in heartbreak
    Didi Gregorius homered twice, CC Sabathia rolled back the clock with nine strikeouts before turning it over to the bullpen in the fifth inning and the Yankees completed their historic comeback from a daunting deficit, advancing past the Indians with a 5-2 victory on Wednesday night in Game 5 of the American League Division Series presented by Doosan.
  • Tribe: Yankees 'played their butts off'
    For the Indians -- who finished the regular season as the AL's top seed, rattled off an AL-record 22-game winning streak and looked to avenge their World Series loss to the Cubs last season -- the loss in the first round of the postseason was clearly devastating. Despite their heartbreak, the Indians tipped their hats to the Yankees.
