Hey, sorry for the lack of posts, been a crazy weekend for me and I haven’t been able to devote the time needed for DLF, but I would like to announce that we do have winners for the Alternative Hero T-Shirts! Say congratulations to Alex Santos and Casey Both, winners of the “Cleveland: Rebuilding Since ’48” shirts! Alex has already received his shirt and Casey yours is going in the mail tomorrow. They both correctly answered the following trivia question:
Link former Indians catcher Eddie Taubensee to current Indians reliever Joe Smith.
The correct answer was:
Taubensee and Willie Blair to Houston for recent Indians HOF inductee Kenny Lofton.
Lofton and Alan Embree to Atlanta for David Justice and Marquis Grissom.
Justice to New York Yankees in exchange for Jake Westbrook, Ricky Ledee and Zach Day.
Day to the former Montreal Expos for Milton Bradley.
Bradley is swapped to the Dodgers for Franklin Gutierrez.
Gut to Seattle in a three team swap that nets the Indians Luis Valbuena from the Mariners and Joe Smith from the third team in the deal, the New York Mets.
Apologies to my brother Dan, who also got the correct answer but wasn’t eligible for a shirt. Interestingly enough, neither Casey nor Alex live in the Ohio area. Out of towners are showing you up, Cleveland fans!
