FILE - In this Sept. 24, 2017, file photo, Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber throws against the Seattle Mariners during the first inning of a baseball game in Seattle. Determined to end their World Series title drought in 2017 after coming so close the previous season, the AL Central champions were bounced in the playoffs by the New York Yankees despite taking a 2-0 series lead. It was a bitter finish for a team that won 102 games and reeled off 22 straight victories. But while there was a sense of finality for some Cleveland fans, manager Terry Francona said these Indians aren’t done.
