"Hey Hoynsie: I'm sure you would agree that pitching , defense and speed win championships . Given the Indians' lack of pitching and team speed , why should Indians fans even bother showing up to games this season knowing that we can't compete with the likes of Boston , New York , Anaheim , Detroit and Minnesota ? "
WHY SHOULD FANS BOTHER SHOWING UP ? Because some of us are true fans !!! Considering our payroll I think we've been pretty competitive . Even though it's more business than a game today , I love baseball and I love the Cleveland Indians. I don't know the guy who wrote this question and don't know his real thoughts and feelings , but the way it was worded it sounds like he is one of those "fans" who jumps on the bandwagon when times are good and it's " cool " to be seen in Tribe gear.I wish those kind of fans wouldn't show up when times are really good , so lifetime fans like myself could get tickets to play off or World's Series games .
