Hey, you grasp at whatever positive straws are there in a year like this one.
Yeah Cleveland has been pretty bad, really only real good in the 40's, 50's, early 60's and the 90's mostly. I think that's right. Their 1920 WS title was a direct result of the banishment of the Black Sox was it not? Comiskey banished the culprits at the end of the season and the Indians beat them by 2 games. Besides that, 1948 ,54, the 90's, not much. The Sox have been marginally better I guess. I like the Indians lineup and they have decent pitching , and a manager who knows what he is doing. I think they are setting up for a pretty good run .
