Apologies in advance for a downer of a post. Sadly… our baseball club is back to being a terribly run organization. The name fiasco coupled with the piss pour roll out of merch is just the latest example.
It was a good run while it lasted… and we got oh so close. But the Indians / Guardians are a dying team.
Baseball is my favorite sport so it pains me to say that… but it’s the sad truth.
Max Scherzer will make more next year than our ENTIRE ROSTER.
They’re not even trying to be competitive.
Am I being too negative? Are you at all hopeful for this team? Talk me off the bridge please…
I ran across this photo on my hard drive this evening of LeBron James wearing an Indians jersey. I’m not quite sure what to think of it but it brought on a rush of feelings. Ahh… a simpler time in the CLE.
It hurts my heart to think our baseball team may someday soon be renamed but I’ve heard a couple suggestions that give me a bit of promise. How about the Cleveland Buzzards? #cleveland #indians #buzzards #clevelandindians #clevelandbuzzards
What do you think? Should Cleveland rename the Indians?
Still having a hard time getting over last night’s sweep. Not sure why but this season’s postseason slump hurts worse than previous years. Maybe it’s cause no one that has a job got to watch any of the games? Talk about a terrible schedule. Oh well… I’m an Astros fan the rest of the way.
Still love me some Tribe… and now it’s officially Browns and Cavs season in the CLE.
Summer is coming to a close and it’s TRIBE time. The Indians clinched a playoff berth last weekend and Jason Kipnis ended last night’s game with a HUGE exclamation point… a GRAND SLAM walk off which also happened to be his 1,000th career hit.
I love the Jake… but this is what I think about when I think “ballpark”. Cleveland Stadium, commonly known as Municipal Stadium or Lakefront Stadium, was a multi-purpose stadium built to accommodate both baseball and football. The stadium opened in 1931 and was a four-time host of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, one of the host venues of the 1948 and 1954 World Series, and the site of the original Dawg Pound, Red Right 88, and The Drive.
Got a favorite memory Municipal Stadium? Share them in the comments.
NOTE: I’m not trying to reignite the Chief Wahoo debate with this post. I ran across this photo when reading a story from back in May about how a protester got busted stealing federal grant money. The photo itself is awesome regardless of your feelings of Wahoo.
The Indians continue their quest for a World Series title this evening as they host Game #1 vs. the Chicago Cubs. Cleveland is going to be ROCKING tonight. Not only are the Indians hosting the Series, but the Cavaliers will be opening up their season and getting their championship rings!
Roberto Perez seemed to be everywhere last night as the Indians beat the Red Sox in game one of the ALDS. He hit home runs, he was involved in plays at the plate, he was tagging up when he shouldn’t have and brought back memories of Carlos Baerga with a slide into second base that hurt to watch.
The series continues this afternoon at 4:30 at Progressive Field.
