4.) Fundamentals: This is such a crapptastically vague topic that folks always seem to just toss it out there. I will be specific with what bothers me. This team completely lacks the ability to advance runners and score runners from third with less than two outs. Those runs should come across, but they don't. They don't in a lot of cases because of poor plate discipline and lack of fundamentals. How many guys on this team can bunt? Ever seen it? It is UGLY, yet this is a crucial aspect of the game and really puts the tribe behind the eightball in close games. You know what happens when you get greedy and try to pull an outside pitch with runners on base? It usually ends in a double play grounder to short or second. I do not play major league baseball, nor have I ever, but I still know that little tidbit of information. So why is it that I continually see these double plays end rallies? Baserunning: we don't need to even mention this. If you have watched the Indians this year you know what freaking adventure that is. It is like seven starters went and got baserunning advice from Manny Ramirez in the offseason. It is an epidemic through the whole team.

Grady comes up.No thought of a bunt to get him to 3rd with 1 out???Then Grady walks and still no bunt?2nd and 3rd, 1 out, they walk Hafner and load em up for our hottest hitter with runners on in Victor.Anyone else thinking that at all?
