The Indians are ending up on the wrong side of history. With Cleveland's 5-2 loss in Game 5 of the American League Division Series to the Yankees, they became the first team to be eliminated blowing a 2 game lead in consecutive seasons. The Indians had a 2-0 advantage against New York before losing three consecutive games. They also had a 3-1 lead on the Cubs in the 2016 World Series. Cleveland went on to lose 3 in-a-row to fall to Chicago in 7 games.
The Indians haven't won a World Series since 1948.
