More Pluto

Why does the Tribe not draw?

Here's my point: For the baseball fan, isn't the bottom line how the team produces on the field? Is it winning? Is it moving in the right direction? Does it make good trades? Is it fun to watch?

Who buys a ticket to watch an owner?

It just seems the Indians are delivering on their promise -- they said they'd contend for the playoffs in 2005, and that's what they are doing.

I like this team. Key players such as Victor Martinez, C.C. Sabathia, Travis Hafner, Coco Crisp, Cliff Lee, Sizemore and others will be around for a few years because of their contract extensions or they simply are not close to free agency. The farm system is healthy. Even if they do lose Millwood, they have other pitchers coming -- and can use his $7 million to sign someone else.

I really don't understand the negativity around a team that could win 90 games.


Here's my thoughts on this, back in the 90s, you could tell which games the Indians were going to win. Like if they were playing a bad team, you could tell they were going to win and win big before the game or series even started. With this team, you know they should win, but you never know? Does that even make sense? Like they'll get swept by Tampa Bay at home in one series and then go 5-2 on a road trip.

But it shouldn't matter... they don't mash like the old teams, but they win. That's all that should matter.
