MLB: Cleveland Indians at Minnesota Twins Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

I found Let’s Go Tribe in the offseason of 2005 after the Coco Crisp trade. It was the first sports blog I found that discussed the Indians with the elevated influence of SABR-metric thinking. It was not enough to say, for example, that Lou Merloni sucked - it was critical to back it up with specific evidence, and also to qualify one’s argument with the caveat that as the utility infielder, the bar was set pretty low for him anyway. The level of discourse and quality of writing at LGT is a direct result of Ryan Richards, who is stepping down from writing and moderating duties. Stop by and thank him for building the best Indians blog on the Internet.
