Chris Antonetti is the Major League Executive of the Year. Terry Francona finished second in the American League Manager of the Year voting to Paul Molitor of the Minnesota Twins. The Indians won an American League-best 102 games last season. Over the last five years, no American League team has won more games than the Tribe. I mention all of this because it's worth mentioning. I mention all of this because I believe the Indians not only are the best-run franchise in town, they are the most under appreciated. I mention all this because the Indians did have an awful ending to a wonderful season -- losing the final three games Michael Brantley Jersey of the American League Division Series to the New York Yankees. When the Tribe was up 2-0 in that best-of-five series, I remember hoping the Houston Astros would win Michael Brantley Jersey the other AL Division Series bracket. I thought the Astros and Tribe would not only be a fun series to watch, but it also would be a celebration of two franchises who did it right. They were not built with huge payrolls and massive free-agents investments. They became winners through savvy trades, solid drafting and a few wise free agent acquisitions. They have smart front offices and excellent field managers. Whenever Antonetti is praised, he immediately shines the light Cleveland Indians Jerseys of good feeling on general manager Mike Chernoff, the other members of the front office -- along with Francona Francisco Lindor Jersey and his coaching staff. Yes, there is angst and gnashing of teeth about the Tribe very likely losing Jay Bruce to free agency. The same with Carlos Santana. But the Indians remain well-positioned to win the Central Division once again. Antonetti and his staff didn't just throw together some players who will win for a year or two. In the last two seasons, they had records of 94-67 and 102-60. I understand the hunger of Tribe fans for a World Series victory. I was born in 1955. I never saw the Tribe play a postseason game until 1995 -- when I was 40. After losing to the Chicago Cubs in the 2016 World Series, the Indians are now the baseball franchise that has existed for the longest without winning the World Series. Very few fans can remember 1948, the last time the Tribe celebrated a World Series title.
