    Will be fun to see CC throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Crowd should go pretty nuts for him.

    When I went the Cincinnati fans brutally booed Andy Dalton and Urban Meyer.

    Dumbasses

    If we Mic up Lindor, give him Underwoods salary, and have him and Manning just talk without a PxP man every game, will it be enough to keep him?

    At this point, does Bieber get the win?

    Well, I guess they give the win to whoever was pitching when the team took the lead. Oh well, he settles for game MVP. Nice consolation prize!

    Fantastic night in The Land. It's been long three days, but well worth the exhaustion. 

    The city of Cleveland and mother nature really came through.

    I saw those pics online and it's awesome it happened during the ASG. I've been to some great sunsets up there, and that one didn't disappoint for the City. Everyone seemed to really like how Cleveland handled everything.

    yeah, I thought that picture looked like a professional one--but it was very cool, and made the evening in the Land, as well as the culmination of an awesome AS weekend, look awesome!!!

    Oh yeah I definitely didn't take that, lol. I got some good ones, but I didn't have a good angle for the sunset. 

    I was happy that Brantley and CC got warm welcomes and equally happy when the rest of the Yankees and Cubs were booed, especially the domestic abuser Chapman.

    The Stand Up to Cancer moment with Cookie was very touching. 

    I thought all of the pregame stuff was well done, from the intros to the anthems (even tho I don't know who Max is), and the flyovers are always a treat. 

    The stadium looked great and all of the festivities outside and at the convention center were really fun. My 6yo nephew was with us last night and he had a blast.

    There were some great moments the past few days, but was it worth killing Chief Wahoo to make it happen?

    100%. He should have been phased out regardless of the ASG.

    Oh and I've been to the ballpark 10 times this year, and he is absolutely alive and well. Just because he isn't on a jersey or a hat doesn't mean he's not everywhere else you look. He most certainly is.

    It was a win win, because while Cleveland won’t be allowed to sell/license him...the fans will never let him die.

    It’s a completely racist and out of touch mascot, but I’m nostalgic and can’t let him go. I acknowledge how wrong it is, I just don’t care lol.

    Cleveland still does sell/license Chief Wahoo. He is sold at the gift shop and many booths throughout Progressive Field. If they decide to quit selling him, they give up the trademark.

     

    They cut a deal with MLB where they would take him off of the uniform in exchange for hosting the ASG.

    GFY. I'm talking about the ASG and Indians history. I have forgotten more about the Indians history than you will ever know.

    Interesting. I thought the deal was they had to cut ties completely, but obviously not. That’s even better for the organization. Who really cares if it’s on the uniform/logo?

    A bunch of toothless hillbilly racists who think the PC police are going to come to their homes and confiscate everything they own with Wahoo on it.

    I wish they would at least replace it with anything but that stupid boxy C. The 4th of July C was cool. I'll still wear Chief Wahoo but I get why they agreed to take it off the uniform, and while I disagree, not gonna bitch about it.

    As an outside observer, I'm actually a big fan of the block C.
