You called me crazy in 2005!
You dissed me in 2007!
You may be laughing now!
Read the link below to the USA Today story from this morning and you may just stop for a moment as think, "Hmmmm....Naw!"
Grady Sizemore was on the 2005 team that made a late season run only to lose their wild card play-off bid by one game to the Boston Red Sox.
Grady was an integral part of the Indian's team that was one game short of the World Series in 2007.
If Grady says that the future may be sooner than we think, that's more than good enough for me!
It is March 3rd and we have not yet played a Spring game yet (Friday is our first game). I will say it again; the 2010 Cleveland Indians have the ability to shock the baseball world as thy did in 2007 (everyone except me).
This team will be a factor in teams not getting to the playoffs. with the American Central Division as weak as it is, they could possibly be a factor in getting to the playoffs themselves.
[Center fielder Grady Sizemore says if the veterans play up to the numbers on their baseball cards and the pitching comes together, the future might arrive sooner than expected.
"It's a whole different feeling in here," Sizemore says. "It's tough to see good guys go, but when you're not playing well, moves have to be made.
"This is a new start. We know we can't control what people are saying about us, but you can change that when you step on the field. We still think we can do some damage."]
"This is my kind of team Charlie, my kind of team!"
