Don't cry, Cleveland Indians fans. At least you're not cheering on the Chicago Cubs or the Houston Astros. Sure, the Indians did not do anything and the team has gone 23-30 since the start of June and 6-12 since the All-Star game, but what did you expect?

For a team that is six games out, the Indians chose to do nothing. Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reported that Tribe GM Chris Antonetti said on Tuesday, "I think the most important thing the guys that are here can do is to perform to their potential. It they can do that, I think we'll be in a much better position at the end of the season than we are right now."

After 103-games, the Indians are what they aremediocre. Actually, being three games under .500, they are less than mediocre. They still sit in baseball purgatory, where there is no winning and no losing. They just linger, waiting for something to happen, good or bad, while people around them hope for the best.

This leads us to what the next step should be for Cleveland fans. It is something they are all used to by now: looking forward to next season. In this version, you will see who will be back, where the Indians can make some changes or upgrades and where money could or should be spent.

If you are still buying this season, good for you. The Indians were not. You deserve a cookie, and this is the best treat for you right now. On to 2013!
