CLEVELAND, Ohio - Every season is different and no team exemplifies that more than the Indians.





After 57 games last year they were 32-25 with a 21/2-game lead in the AL Central. They moved into first place in Game No. 54 and did not relinquish it for the rest of the season. What's more, they were eight games away from going on their franchise record 14-game winning streak, the turning point of the season.


This year the Indians are 29-28 after 57 games. After losing to Colorado on Wednesday, they trailed first place Minnesota by one game.


The roster is basically the same - Edwin Encarnacion replacing Mike Napoli was the biggest change - but it's hard to imagine this year's team coming anywhere close to last year's winning streak. They just completed a 1-4 trip in which they lost two out of three to the Royals and were outclassed by the NL West-leading Rockies.


There is an old baseball saying that goes, "no team is as good as it looks when it's winning or as bad as it looks when it's losing." The Indians better hope there is some truth in that because if the gap between a contender and the kind of baseball they're playing is as wide as it appeared to be against the Rockies at Coors Field - DH or no DH - they're in trouble.



Terry Francona is about as protective a manager as the Indians have had when it comes to defending his players. But on this last trip, he was obviously trying to send them a message.


After a 12-5 loss to the Royals on Saturday, he said, "that wasn't close to good enough.".......
