That KBO trophy was sweet, I regret that they cut away almost immediately after its unveiling

He's on a local Cincinnati news station tonight doing an interview to start his apology tour, I assume.

I want people to be able to apologize, grow, and resume their life, but a little time off is necessary for change. What's his penance?

Someone said Cleveland should change its name to World Series Champions since nothing else has worked.

I'd love it and it actually may be better odds than you'd think.

I've also heard Guardians (it's something Cleveland related I think?).

Maybe The Tribe since that's their nickname? Or is that offensive also? Hard to keep track sometimes.

Everything is offensive to someone.

Cleveland Rivers of Fire would be cool

The problem isn't necessarily the word "tribe," it would be the imagery - especially in the context of the previous name. How do you construct a logo/mascot that doesn't recall Indians or Chief Wahoo, but has any kind of meaning or symbolism?

It turns out Omar Vizquel is a piece of shit. Arrested for domestic violence that his wife says has been going on throughout the marriage and he was also fired flin 2019 from his job managing the White Sox AA affiliate after an incident with another team employee.

Damn. I just signed him to a 6 year extension in my 90’s OOTP play through. Maybe I can get out of the contract?

As someone who used the strategy in OOTP to decent effect...what is wrong with openers?

I guess this can put a cap on the 2020 season.

I know.

The Mets don't go out and get 27 year old studs, they get the Robinson Canos of the world. Now go get Bauer.

Before this thread becomes obsolete, I just want to close the circle. Reading some of his comments he made in other articles about the baseball he likes to watch compared to the baseball he knew would win struck a chord with me.
