So, as of yesterday, there are no – as in zero – Cleveland Indians with any potential of playing in the 2016 MLB All-Star game. Not a single player in a single position. No one.
And I could not be happier.
Fans of America just took an already awakened giant and kicked him in the ass. Perfect. I want my Cleveland Indians – well, mine and Christian’s and Timmy Wells’ and Patrice Link’s – going into the second half of the season angry. Better still, I want them fuming. I want them focused on proving just how good they are to the rest of the league.
According to ESPN’s MLB Player Ratings, our best player, Frankie Lindor, is ranked 29th and only the second best SS in baseball. But what about Salazar? Nope. He is ranked 32, and not even in the top 10 of starting pitchers! And it’s all down hill from there.
I love it.
45 down, 45 to go. And we are going… all the way!
