Farewell Victor...


We won't be seeing this again....Good luck Cliff...Good luck Victor...


I know that last night I said I was done with the Cleveland Indians and baseball...But I have to get a little more off my chest...

I hate this salary dumping crap the Tribe is doing, and the never-ending rebuild...I didn't like the Betancourt trade...I hated the Garko trade...I hated the Cliff Lee trade...And now today's trade made me sick...Yes, I'm a bit of a Red Sox fan...So if Victor Martinez had to go anywhere...that would be the best place I could think of...

That said...The Indians traded away the heart and soul of this team...Martinez was one of the few players on this team, that they found and developed...Most everyone else the Tribe has acquired by trading away their best players at the prime of their career...Victor did everything that was asked of him...And then some...He took on a leadership role at a younger age then most...Why? Because there was no one else to do it...He worked to improve his defense behind the plate...then he learned to play first...All the time, hitting the sh!t out of the ball...

He has always been a first class guy...And then today we saw a little more of him then we ever expected...We saw just how much he loved the organization that brought him up...We saw how much he loved the fans of Cleveland...As he took questions from the media, just after the news broke that he would be a member of the Boston Red Sox...Victor Martinez fought-back tears as he talked about how this was the toughest day he's had in his baseball career...He talked about he hoped to only play for one team in his career...This team...He spoke about how much his teammates meant to him...How the organization had done so much for him...How great the fans are, and how thankful he is for them...

I've never heard a athlete who was on a sh!tty team...Sound so upset about being traded to one of the top franchises in the sport...He truly sounded crushed by the news...He wanted to see this thing through...Not many players in today game would have reacted like this...That's why he was the heart and soul of the Cleveland Indians....Boston, you are lucky to be getting him...And I know I'm not alone when I say that Cleveland is truly saddened to be losing Victor Martinez...


To add insult to injury...Saturday night is Victor Martinez bobble head giveaway night...WTF!?!
And next week there is a Victor Martinez backpack giveaway for the kids...Unreal...



I personally will not spend another dime on The Cleveland Indians...I've had enough with the bad ownership...Go Screw Mr. Dolan....

I've had enough with GM, Mark 'Never-Ending Rebuild' Shapiro...Go Screw!

I've had enough with hack, manager, Eric Wedge and his p!ss poor coaching staff...Made up of a bunch of below average ex-catchers....Go Screw!

I've had enough of a team that keeps asking fans to be patient...Then turns around and starts rebuilding all over again...

I've had enough of the Cleveland Indians....

GO RED SOX!!!

Later, The Beeze.

Salary dump is simply crap ... yet the beat goes on, so thank you Bud Selig for your leadership for emphasizing money.
