    "The Guardians" is why the NBA and NFL and WWE are kicking baseball's ass. Such awful marketing for the twenty-first century. They had this one chance to make zillions with nationwide merchandising, a real splash, and they did that. So provincial. It's like a bunch of old Ohio white guys were sitting on Zoom the last year and thought, Guardians, nice. Not offensive at all. Could be the name of an insurance company or newspaper from 1955.

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.

    they just showed a graphic saying that freeman has gone 32 straight plate appearances without a single swing and miss.

    So you're saying those teams would boo a guy as he walked out to the mound who before wednesday "struck out 41 batters in 37 innings, giving up only 17 hits and six earned runs, to go along with a 1.45 ERA and 21 saves?"*

    would they boo a closer with a 36 ERA and 6.50 WHIP in his last 3 appearances? yes, absolutely.

    Chapman Jun 19 to Jul 4, 2021: 5 games, 3.1 innings, 10 runs

    Just before that he was the beneficiary of a triple play.... completely forgotten how to pitch. glad he didn't kill didi when he was airmailing them to the backstop the other day.

    Can’t believe the Sox managed to hang that L on Cole. Impromptu bullpen game came through for them.

    Interesting take Benny. For one I don’t think the committee was as white as you imagine from everything I’ve read today but whatever.

    If they would have gone the route of the edgier leagues or past expansion teams we could have expected an animal name and a lot of teal in the new colors.

    That what you like? Cool.

    They keep their colors and have a connection to the past. The script “Guardians” is half of the old script “Indians” for Pete’s sake. I think it works. Many won’t. As is life.

    I’m more pissed about taking winning games into the 9th back to back nights and giving it up to the Rays. Or Devil Rays. Or whatever they are.

    They have a shit load of teal in their colors too. Maybe that’s they key?

    Dodger fans know enough to give Price a standing O after 5 & 2/3rds of very efficient pitching which is exactly what we needed

    I can tell you just about any name of a color that Porsche slapped on a car for the better part of 3 decades, but I can’t make that claim when it comes to splitting the hues of the late 90s most favorite color.

    Sherwin-Williams is based in Cleveland. I’m just glad they weren’t consulted on a new color scheme for the team.

    I just think they totally missed the boat with Cleveland Rocks. It was a gift from above. The merchandising alone. Built in catchy theme song. Partnership with R&R HOF. Air guitar contests. Elvis impersonator nights. Elvis mascot. Hair metal night. Country Rock for the pickup set. Sure, work in R&B and Rap. Christ, the T shirt sales, just to start.

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.

    I guess the stain and shame of Disco Demolition night will always be with Cleveland.

    Damn. History fades. Always confuse it with ten cent beer night.

    This is why the world needs my alternative HOF. To keep the memory of these great events alive, so our grandchildren can learn about them.
