    The name could have been worse. Heard a lot of stupid suggestions. They have to change the logo. I hate it. Looks like a drunk hangover from the movie Major League.
    I'll still wear my Indians stuff to a game because of the history, that and the current Guardians logo sucks.



    May the force be with us.

    How long until White Sox have to change their name? Braves, Reds? How about Rangers - surely some are offended by a name that insinuates law enforcement. Nationals? Yeah, sorry, but not diverse enough for some. What about Angels? Can't have any mention of religion for our younger generations of so-called atheists.

    Chief Wahoo always seemed like a badass mascot. I never found any of it offensive and thought he was cool.

    Sports have become political platforms these days for a few attention starved loud mouths. Social media has allowed them to fester. Most players just want to go out there and play the game.

    (found Tom Hanks narrating this video strangely creepy for some reason, 'forced')
    The price was right I guess.

    Tom Hanks started his acting career here in Cleveland and has always been a Cleveland baseball fan.
