Watch the hysterical video of the Indians reading mean tweets

TonyMazur Swisher

The Cleveland Indians ripped this bit off from Jimmy Kimmel, but who cares? The execution was really great and delivered the kind of hysterical results you’d expect. My favorite is also the featured image here where Tony Mazur gets bro-slapped by Nick Swisher. I also appreciated the Jim Rosenhaus bit. And just getting a jump

Corey Kluber Cleveland Indians

This is me talking to myself. I have to talk to myself sometimes when it comes to sports because otherwise you forget about foresight and only look at hindsight and then you hate yourself for being so stupid and not being able to see the future. That’s why I treat myself so harshly with regard to

Two Indians mentioned as Grantland’s worst contracts

Swisher Best 140711

It’s what all the Cleveland Indians defenders say when anyone wants to talk about how cheap the Dolans are, and they’re not wrong.

Hey there, WFNY. It’s Wednesday, and I’m not TD. Yes, much like Mike Aviles, I have no regular WWW position, but I’m pitching in wherever needed. So, from when you last heard from me in the WWW space, it was Thursday, and plenty has happened since then. In fact, all five of the teams that
