The Cleveland Indians are no longer the Indians. They dropped the name, something that has been a long time coming for the franchise, as its not sensitive to indigenous people.
I have zero problems with that. It's now going to be interesting to see what their new name will be. They went by the last one for over a century.
Ideas have been floated over on CBSSports including -- Spiders, Rockers, Crows and Dobys (for HOFer Larry Doby).
The Cleveland Rockers is kinda cool but too close to the Rockies.
The Cleveland Spiders .. nah.
The Cleveland Crows, lame.
The Cleveland Dobys, I like. Sounds unique, cool history. Just not sure what the mascot would be. Larry Doby was the first black player ever to play in the American League.
What do you think they should be? Think they'll announce what they will do in about a week and will update here. They might just go super lame and remain the Cleveland Baseball Team, copy catting the Washington Football Team to buy time to figure it out.
