9/15 @7:10 p.m. Kansas City Royals vs Detroit Tigers

Recommended Posts

the indians?  the team that had the most racist mascot in sports up until the great awokening? come on.  

and im with randy.  indians fans are obnoxious asses.  for a team that has never won ****, they talk a lot of crap.  and the city of cleveland seems to think their city is somehow better than detroit.  i dont know how many "yeah, cleveland is bad but at least were not detroit" memes i have to see in my life.

if new york or boston or chicago or LA want to say detroit is bad, well, detroit is worse than those places.  but CLEVELAND?  get the **** out of here.  

not to mention its located in the ****tiest state in the union.

**** the indians.  watching them lose two heartbreaking game sevens was so so sweet.  start the bonfire by throwing another cigarette on the river indians fans.  losers.

On the other hand, the Royals have been far more consistently bad in that time, making the playoffs a mere 3 times.  Since the switch to three divisions in 1994, the Royals have finished 4th or 5th 16 times out of 26 seasons.  From 1985, they've only won their division twice and finished above .500 9 times.

By direct comparison, the Tigers made the playoffs 6 times, finished 4th or 5th 13 out of 26 times since 1994 (okay, only a little better) and since 1985 have won the division 5 times and finished above .500 14 times.

So while over the long term the two teams appear closely matched, the Tigers are more likely to be good in any given year.  The Tigers also were able to have sustained success (2011-2014 playoffs, and 6 out of 7 years >.500 including 5 years in a row, plus the mid-80s at the beginning of this period) while the Royals only managed to hit .500 in three consecutive years (twice).

Thank you. That’s a good corrective to my negativism. That extra three wins per year on average can mean more than it may appear to mean.

Toledo is bad, but at least we're not Chicago.

I think the accusation that all Indians fans are subhuman is an expression of a fascist ideology of genocide and eliminationism that is — unfortunately — in boastful resurgence today.

I lived in Tucson where the Indians had their spring training and I went to their games frequently over 13 years, 1974-1987. They were the most uninspiring team. So uninspiring that I don’t remember ever having met a genuine Indians fan or ever seeing an Indians cap on anyone’s head in the stands. I didn’t get the feeling it was worth the effort for people to come all the way from Cleveland to Tucson just so they could watch their terrible team play amidst palm trees instead of in their dank and horrible stadium. I don’t remember ever having the sense that in the city that hosted the Indians for spring training for something like 50 years there was a single fan of Indians other than one grounds keeper you would see on occasion wearing an Indians cap.

But I remember meeting Bob Feller and he was a good guy and he gave me a baseball. I remember sitting next to Joe Garagiola in the stands and he pointed out Herb Score to me. When Frank Robinson was the manager he autographed a baseball card for me. I remember before a game seeing a young Cory Snyder in his crisp white stainless home uniform — which after the game would be filthy because of how hard he played the game — having a picnic lunch with his incredibly proud parents under a palm tree at Hi Corbett Field. I remember meeting the most breathtaking Baseball Annie on earth waiting for players on the practice fields and realizing she was the most perfect human being who ever lived. 

There are enough Indian fans who are real baseball fans I am certain they would never suffer the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah where God could not find even one righteous person in their midst. There are enough stainless hearts and stainless moments associated with the Cleveland Indians for me to assert they represent baseball as well as anyone else and that the pox of their 72-year drought deserves to end.

Don't forget Gaylord Perry. Mr. Brylcreame had a couple good years with them. 

Gaylord Perry played for almost every team in that window.

So true. Like a traveling road show. He was quite entertaining and controversial from what I remember.

The Indians were able to sign a top pitcher in the early FA days, Wayne Garland. Although he was no Jon Koncak.

So you hate fascist ideology of genocide and eliminationism yet you like a franchise that boasted "Chief Wahoo" with a picture of a smiley faced hook nosed Native American as it's "mascot" for much of existence.  The very SYMBOL of genocide and eliminationism.  Come on Bert!

The Indians are trash and deserve to be lumped together with the Black Sox as perennial losers for their egregious sins and their horrible fan base.

$170,000 a year for 10 years!  And a $300,000 signing bonus !?!  Are you kidding me?  That's outrageous!

An infielder with the Indians, I forget who it was, was Gaylord's closest friend on the team.  The first time they played against each other after Gaylord was traded, he quickly got the count to 0 and 2 and then threw a spitter for strike 3, and the poor guy had to walk all the way back to the dugout trying not to laugh.

How did Gaylord Perry get brought up?  Just wondering cause I googled him to see if he forgot any teams on that jersey he is wearing and come to find out today is actually his 82nd birthday.  Crazy that out of all days he got brought up it would be on his birthday.

How do you mean?

I noticed it was his Birthday when I searched for him so I thought maybe that was the reason he was brought up to begin with.

Ahh...brought up in conversation.

I was trying to figure out if you meant how he was raised or promoted through the minors and why you would ask.
