The Dolans are the worst owners in MLB
I know it’s football season and I am excited that the Browns are finally back in The Playoffs after an 18-year absence, but a thing happened yesterday and I just need to vent.
GOODBYE TO A LEGEND…
So yesterday The Cleveland Indians announced they were trading Francisco Lindor and Carlos Carasco to the NY Mets for a Zagnut, Snickers and a 3 Muskateers to be named later. It is a sad day in Cleveland AGAIN because all Matt Dolan cares about is reducing payroll and not putting together a solid roster. Sure they had a great farm system when it came to grooming Pitchers, but they never seemed to get it right when it came to the lineup. This is a team that was a 3-1 lead away from winning the World Series (that still hurts by the way) in 2016 and it seemed that the Tribe was set up to win for years to come, along with probably the best rotation in baseball. But after all of that success in ’16, the Dolans decided to start cutting payroll until 4 years later they now will have a payroll that is 100 million less than the Marlins next year.
Lindor was a legend to the fans of Cleveland, and we all knew that Lindor was going to be moved, but the shocker here is Carasco. Carlos “Cookie” Carasco was a fan favorite, and after battling and beating leukemia in b2019 his comeback that same year was inspirational. This one hurts, and it is all more evidence of the Dolan’s not giving a damn about the fans. Attendance has suffered the last couple of years and it isn’t because the Indians were not competing, because they made the playoffs 4 out of the last 5 years, including 3 consecutive AL Central titles and one World Series appearance (the aforementioned 2016 WS). Attendance has suffered because the entire fanbase hates the owners, they refuse to do what it takes to get this franchise over the top… They play in the weakest division in Baseball… they have dominated that division but when it comes time to play the hated Yankees or the Cheating Astros, who play in much better divisions, they fail miserably.
The Dolan’s have ruined baseball in Cleveland because they are cheap, because they don’t care, and because they have no idea what they are doing. OH if you happen to recognize the name, Dolan… It’s because Matt Dolan’s cousin runs the NY Knicks.. so I guess failure runs in the family. The overwhelming echos coming out of the fanbase is to not spend money on merchandise, tickets, or anything Indians related because if ownership doesn’t care, why should the fanbase. The Indians haven’t won a World Series since 1948, and so long as the current owners are in place that streak will continue to grow because they just don’t give a shit…
