On the morning of May 18th, the Cleveland Indians were 26-13, owned the best record in baseball and seemed invincible. In those two short weeks since then, the Tribe have gone 7-10 and come crashing down to earth. This just seems like the same old song and dance for Cleveland fans.
However, in my opinion, the sky is still bright for the 2011 Indians. They are still in first place in the AL Central by 2.5 games and are tied with the Yankees for the best record in the American League. Every team goes through dry spells; how you react to them defines your season.
The following list is 10 ways that the Cleveland Indians can improve in the short- and long-term. The list is a mix of roster moves and things that certain players need to fix in order to help themselves and the team.
2011 isn't lost yet for the Tribe. With some shrewd moves and improvements, we can take baseball by storm again in June.
