Brad Hand wasting no time endearing himself to Cleveland

This is how you introduce yourself to a new team.

Depending on when you consider a trade “official,” Brad Hand was either acquired by the Cleveland Indians a few hours ago, or he’s still waiting on physicals and technically a member of the San Diego Padres.

Either way, he’s prepared to be a member of the Indians, and he hasn’t hesitated in acclimating himself to fans.

That’s roughly three hours since Ken Rosenthal broke the story of the trade and two hours since the Indians first tweeted about the trade. In that time, Brad has changed his Twitter bio — and more impressively his Twitter photo with a photoshop from @make_yourcase — to reflect his new team.

If that doesn’t scream “I’m excited to be on a winning team” I don’t know what does.

Welcome to Cleveland, Brad.
