The Cleveland Indians ownership has taken a lot of bullets over the years for being “cheap.” While that’s a relative term in a game that is notoriously unbalanced in terms of payrolls, if nothing else, it’s fair to call it a facile and slightly lazy dig at this point. I’m not saying you can’t make the argument that the Dolans are cheap, but it would take far more than 140 characters on Twitter to make that case.
All that said, it only took 140 characters for the Indians’ official Twitter account to fight back a rather trollish tweet directed at Indians ownership.
And there at the bottom of the screenshot you can see the follow-up response to the guy who was so swiftly repudiated.
@Indians I'm glad you guys responded to me. I'm a huge fan of the team and I just want to win. But Swisher wasn't exactly the best signing.

Maybe you’ll think twice the next time you tweet straight at the @Indians account with a smart-alec comment.
