    services. CLEVELAND -- If Francisco Lindor werent so grounded and mature at age
    22, he might be tempted to develop a crush on himself. Lindor already has an
    All-Star Game appearance on his resume. Hes a finalist for a 2016 Gold Glove
    award. And when Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon was recently asked for his
    opinion on the Cleveland Indians?shortstop, he sounded as if he were auditioning
    to be the kids agent.Amid the industry praise and recognition of his skills,
    Lindor is well aware that the growth process entails taking some risks,
    stretching boundaries to the limit and finding a way to move on from failure.
    While posting an impressive .360/.396/.540 slash line in October, he has had
    multiple opportunities to demonstrate his bounce-back power during Clevelands
    13-game jaunt through the postseason.In Game 3 of the World Series at Wrigley
    Field, Lindor got picked off first base by Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks and
    grounded into a rally-killing double play only to be bailed out by Clevelands
    pitchers in a 1-0 Indians victory.He wasnt so fortunate in a 3-2 loss in Game 5
    on Sunday night. Lindor was thrown out by Cubs catcher David Ross on an
    attempted steal of second base and struck out looking against Chicago closer
    Aroldis Chapman with the potential tying run on third base in the eighth inning.
    In the immediate aftermath, it was easy to reflect on those two missteps as
    potential difference-makers.Shortly after Javier Baez tagged Lindor out on the
    attempted steal, Indians outfielder Rajai Davis pulled Lindor aside to share a
    teachable moment. Davis led the American League with 43 stolen bases this
    season, and his inner thief spotted a missed opportunity; Chicagos Jon Lester
    has a well-known mental block that prevents him from throwing to first base to
    hold runners, and Davis thought Lindor was a bit too tentative to exploit that
    advantage.I was just letting him know I thought he could have gotten out a
    little further, Davis said. If he got out two more steps [with his lead], he
    would have been safe at second. Instead of bang-bang out, it would have been
    bang-bang safe. Those are the things you learn.Hes very good at taking
    instruction. He doesnt have too big of an ego where he cant listen to somebody
    that knows. He is so mature and beyond his age. Hes definitely had some good
    coaching to this point. Hes the most consistent 22-year-old Ive ever seen.The
    Indians were well aware of Lindors all-around package before they selected him
    with the No. 8 pick in the 2011 draft and signed him to a $2.9 million bonus.
    Lindor grew up quickly after moving from his native Puerto Rico to the U.S. with
    his family at age 12, and he made a name for himself against top competition as
    a prep player at Montverde Academy, a private boarding school in Florida. So it
    was no surprise when he zipped through the Cleveland system and finished his
    minor league apprenticeship with Clevelands Triple-A Columbus affiliate at age
    20.While MLB talent evaluators express admiration for the Indians team-oriented
    approach and rave about the Cubs collection of young talent, Lindor is the one
    player who would fit right in with the Kris Bryant, Javier Baez, Kyle Schwarber
    array of Baseball America darlings on the Chicago roster. He has the elite
    package of skills that an organization can build around combined with the
    natural fan appeal that marketing departments love.Lindors sense of style was
    apparent when he showed up at a news conference during the AL playoffs lugging a
    white leather backpack and wearing a fedora, a la Houston Astros shortstop
    Carlos Correa.dddddddddddd And his perpetually sunny approach to the game
    ensures that baseball never seems like drudgery. Lindor hugged Toronto Blue Jays
    infielder Ryan Goins during batting practice at the American League Championship
    Series, gave an unsuspecting Indians fan game tickets and a hug during the
    division series at Progressive Field, and even stopped to show some love to Cubs
    reliever Hector Rondon after a futile pursuit of a foul pop earlier in the World
    Series.Hes got a lot of positive energy about him, Maddon said. I love the way
    he interacts. Thats the kind of guy you need to attract young baseball fans. Not
    necessarily players, but fans. I think hes wonderful.Lindors dedication to the
    finer points of the game and willingness to put in the requisite time reflect
    his alternate, more workmanlike side. During spring training, manager Terry
    Francona told a story about how Lindor was on the list of players who were
    excused from the Cactus League opener against Cincinnati. But Lindor showed up
    to watch, regardless. The next day, Francona passed by a back field at 7:30 a.m.
    and saw Lindor working on jumps and lunges with Clevelands strength and
    conditioning coach.Lindors internal makeup precludes him from coasting. His
    attention to detail is evident when hes asking injured outfielder Michael
    Brantley how to approach a pivotal at-bat during a game, or when he takes ground
    balls from his knees in a drill the Indians use to improve hand-eye
    coordination.Lindor sent a message to the Cleveland veterans at the outset of
    his big league career by consistently deferring to their experience and tapping
    into their knowledge. Early in the World Series, a reporter asked Lindor the
    standard Who was your favorite player growing up? question. The depth of Lindors
    response showed he had given the matter considerable thought.I liked Robbie
    Alomar because he seemed like he was going to impact the game in different ways,
    Lindor said. I liked the swag he had, and how calm he was, and how he impacted
    the game. And Omar Vizquel. He always seemed like he knew what was going to
    happen.Derek Jeter was focused and always helping teammates. Barry Larkin was
    calm at the plate in big situations, and Jim Rollins was little but at the same
    time he was a big guy on the field. My dad and my cousin and brother always told
    me try to get something from everyone. Dont get stuck in one player. Just learn
    something from everyone.Some attributes -- like the ability to move past
    mistakes and maintain a sense of calm during pressure situations -- can be
    refined only with experience and time. Lindor has endured a few rough patches
    this month, but theyve been mere blips in an impressive debut on the October
    stage. Its all part of laying the groundwork for what promises to be a long and
    prosperous major league career.Hes so good at putting stuff behind him and
    staying in the moment, Cleveland closer Cody Allen?said. He continues to grind
    and grind, and he never settles on how well hes playing or mopes about how bad
    hes playing. He just continues to move forward.Lindor and his fellow Indians
    will move forward Tuesday night in World Series Game 6 against Chicago at
    Progressive Field. If they can close out the Cubs and bring Cleveland its first
    MLB title since 1948, the new face of Indians baseball will make sure there are
    plenty of hugs to go around.
