Tribe needs to mind the farm
If there is one thing Cleveland fans like to talk about almost as much as wins and losses it is the draft.
Doesn’t matter if it is the Browns and the NFL Draft (Justin Blackmon vs. Trent Richardson? What about that back-up long-snapper they passed on with the second pick in the seventh round?), the Cavs and the NBA Draft (Michael Kidd-Gilchrist? Harrison Barnes? Trade with Portland?) or the Indians and the seemingly never-ending Major League Draft (Can you believe they took another shortstop in the 33rd round?), everyone is an expert and everyone wants to know when we will see these guys on a major league roster.
For a team like the Indians, that can’t just spend its way into the playoffs by signing high-priced free agents to fill in the holes on the roster, the draft is critical.
