hall of fame canton

In the recent Draft Day movie, for all of its known quirks, my favorite guffaw might have been the mention of Canton in the early goings.

It’s called “losses”, and the Indians had 93 of them. But, for whatever reason, the Indians actually had some pretty good results out of their bullpen in
