Which Sports Would the Indians Compete in at the Olympics?
Forgive me for not wanting to over analyze the tremendous Bryan LaHair and Elliot Johnson signings, but I’d rather gauge out my own eyeballs than write about that type of so-called talent. I know LaHair was an All-Star in 2012 for the Chicago Cubs, but does anyone remember how bad the Cubs were? It was by default. And why would you sign anyone named Elliot? It’s a terrible baseball name and no one with the name is in the Hall of Fame, first, last, or middle name. Depth be damned, there hasn’t been much to get excited about with the Cleveland Indians off-season to this point. So, how about we take a break from the nothing that is happening to enjoy some Olympic coverage?
As you snuggle up with your wife to watch figure skating and ice dancing in the coming weeks, you can take solace in the fact that Spring Training is coming and that you aren’t in the closets and pillows that Russia is calling rooms and beds in Sochi. But if you need to daydream about baseball, how would the Cleveland Indians fit into the various sports in the Winter Olympics?
It has come to this…
