How will fans react to streamlined Cleveland Indians in 2019 | cleveland.com
Another wild Hey Hoynsie. From Paul Hoynes:
Hey, Russ: The Indians have cut payroll this winter and parted with a lot of talented players through trades or free agency. I think they’re still going to be favored to win the AL Central, especially if they keep the starting rotation intact.
In Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramirez you have two of the best position players in baseball. Over the last three years, the Indians have proved they will make moves at the trading deadline if they’re positioned to make the postseason, which means we may not see the best this team has to offer until midseason or beyond.
The decision to go to the ballpark is yours, but there’s still a long way between now and opening day. The Indians know they have work to do.
On more thing, on Saturday over 12,000 fans came to Cleveland Convention Center for Tribe Fest. I’m sure many of them were skepitcal about the home town team’s chances this year, but it’s hard to beat the experience of being close to the players and the game. Just like the feeling you get at Progressive Field.
