As I was in the doctor's office this morning for possible appendicitis, I was browsing Reddit on my phone to pass the time.
Before I go any further, for those of you who are unaware, Reddit is the self-described "front page of the internet" in which articles are posted in a forum-like manner on their dedicated sub-reddits. Once posted, threads are up or down-voted by Reddit users, which usually filters out quality work from junk/redundant articles. For baseball, the dedicated subreddit is /r/baseball (anyone who is unfamiliar with Reddit may assume that the main baseball subreddit would be /r/MLB, but that sub is pretty inactive. /r/baseball encompasses all baseball, not just MLB).
Anyway, back to this morning. While on /r/baseball, two teams sent their social media teams to interact with fans and answer questions. The two teams? The Arizona Diamondbacks and the Cleveland Indians. Naturally, I clicked into the thread for the Tribe to see what was going on.
As many of you are aware, the Tribe's social media team is pretty top-notch, so seeing them answering questions on Reddit this morning was a pleasant surprise. I'll link the full thread at the bottom of this article, but here are some of the highlights from the AMA (short for Ask Me Anything):
