Must-Click Link: What do the GMs really talk about at the trade deadline

If you liked that little one act play I imagined involving Theo, Jack and Ned in yesterday’s Power Rankings, you’ll love what Grant Brisbee has done with his power rankings over at SB Nation today.

I won’t give any of it away, but I’m pretty sure he totally nailed the Ed Wade/Frank Wren conversation over the Michael Bourn trade.

Indians unveil red alternate jersey, Wahoo-free caps

The Cleveland Indians unveiled a new alternate home jersey today. It’s a red top with a script “Indians” on the front. It’ll be worn for occasional home games next year. It’ll be the first time the Indians have worn red jerseys since the 1970s, though these are not throwbacks to those Buddy Bell/Boog Powell-era kits they once wore, as you can see below. 

The Indians also unveiled their other uniforms. They’re basically identical to what they’ve worn in the past, except no Chief Wahoo, who has been phased out of the team’s livery. A block C has replaced Wahoo on the cap, with both the red-bill and the solid blue block C continuing. Jersey patches of Wahoo are gone too, replaced for this year by the guitar-shaped 2019 All-Star Game logo. No word on what they’ll do for a patch beyond that. 

Overall it’s a modest upgrade rather than than the total redesign that they might’ve done given that they had to change caps and stuff anyway, but anything without Wahoo his welcome.

 

Cleveland’s caps as well as its home and road jerseys will feature the guitar-shaped 2019 All-Star Game logo. Cleveland is hosting the 75th event in July.
