I have also posted on many Cleveland Indians' fan sites over the years and have been kicked off most. Not for bad language but, rather, because my opinion is considered too negative and I like to focus on what needs to be fixed rather than what is going well. When you have consecutive 90 loss seasons with only a marginal chance for better in 2011, not much is going well.
OK, let's start with the facts:
If you are here you are:
- probably a fan of the Cleveland Indians
- are curious to see what will be posted here
- not turned off to my opinion
What I am is ant-front office stupidity, anti-dissing prospects in favor of minor league free agents and overpriced free agent mercenaries who don't give a crap about Cleveland other than it is a paycheck. I am pro spending lots of money SMARTLY on the draft every year and have been for years before it recently came into vogue on most Indians' fan boards and with the Indians, themselves.
Despite popular belief I am supportive of all prospect rating systems and individuals to a degree but do respect the veteran publications, specifically Baseball America, who have been doing this for years.
So, if you want my opinion, welcome. If you don't then don't hang around.
