The saying for the month of March goes “in like a lion and out like a lamb." This, of course, is referring to the weather pattern that is often seen during that part of the year. For the Cleveland Indians, however, it wasn’t March that came in like a lion and out like a lamb, it was May.
The second half of the month saw the Indians slowing down a bit—save for the four-game sweep of the Seattle Mariners—taking only seven of the last 14.
Some people will point fingers at the Tribe bullpen, while others claim the starting lineup is losing its pop.
Looking back at the month of April and comparing it to the month of May should paint a better picture of who is performing well for the Indians and who needs to pick it up.
