Cleveland Fans Taking Cliff Lee Deal About As Well As Can Be Expected

Jul 30, 2009, 6:00 PM EDT

Ah, Cliff Lee is a member of the World Champion Philadelphia Phillies. That sounds quite nice. Unless, of course, you're a fan of the Cleveland Indians. It seems some wily Indians fans have been having some fun with Indians' owner Larry Dolan's wiki page, “In July 2009, Larry Dolan traded Ryan Garko, Cy Young Award winner
Cliff Lee and Ben Francisco for a slew of no-name players.  The moves
were widely perceived to be a big “[Expletive] You” to the fans in
Cleveland.”

Chin up, Cleveland. You were going to suck next year anyway. Maybe now Jason Knapp can turn into a stud that can help you in the future. Much more of the Cleveland misery found over at our friends at Waiting For Eternity.
