"Good morning, gentlemen, and welcome to another season of Indians baseball."

Once again, life is imitating art. In this case, the real Cleveland Indians' ball club is very much like the 1989 hit movie version, "Major League". You might ask yourself, "Just what are the intentions of ownership?!" Apparently, their intentions are good but their ability to run a successful baseball team is completely questionable.
"The fact is we lost our two best players to free agency [I wish it was only two]. We haven't won a pennant in over thirty-five years [12 years now], we haven't placed higher than fourth in the last fifteen [close enough]. Obviously it's time for some changes."
"Maybe the problem is... we're coddling these guys too much. Yeah!"
At any rate, despite the poor performance of the team to this point and the poorer performance of ownership, this team is still trying and they are having a very good second half again! They have won 5 of their last 7 games against the top Central Division teams and they are fun to watch!

However, with the team still only 11.5 games out of 1st place, it will be a long time until happier times return to the corner of Carnegie and Ontario streets.
