The Cleveland Indians signed a free agent! Probably not the one a lot of fans wanted, but Juan Uribe is an easy upgrade over Giovanny Urshela. However, being that the Indians signed an aging veteran on a discount, I'm sure everyone on Twitter is thrilled about it, right?
First, let's get the #CHAMPIONSHIP responses out of the way.

@LetsGoTribe I'll add this: Juan Uribe -- much better than expected, when I expected to get nothing, ... and like it.— Michael Skotnicki (@MSkotnicki) February 19, 2016

There are some people who seem genuinely excited about the signing, which is cool. You can count me in this crowd.

Juan Uribe is a winner. Solid veteran piece. The days of the all left handed lineup are long over. I'm down with this move. #TribeTown— T.D. Dery (@TD1TribeKU) February 19, 2016
And then there's August Fagerstrom dropping knowledge bomb after knowledge bomb, as he does.
