Kiss 'Em Goodbye: Cleveland Indians
The Indians rolled the dice on Ubaldo Jimenez and must now fill holes for 2012
Kiss 'Em Goodbye is a series focusing on MLB teams as their postseason dreams fade -- whether in September (or before), the league division series, league championship series or World Series. It combines a broad overview from Baseball Prospectus, a front-office take from former MLB GM Jim Bowden, a best- and worst-case scenario ZiPS projection for 2012 from Dan Szymborski and Kevin Goldstein's farm-system overview.
Today we bid farewell to the Cleveland Indians, who ran out of steam down the stretch after a surprisingly successful first half.
For the full breakdown from all angles -- Bowden, BP and Szymborski -- you need to be an ESPN Insider.
