Cleveland Indians Win 2016 AL Pennant, Cleveland is Title Town.
Like I said in my Fuck The Cubs Power Rankings, the Indians were clear AL favorites. I totally expected them to brush off the loses of Carrasco, Salazar, Brantley and Trevor Bauer Being an Idiot and go a quick 7-1 to take the AL crown. Seriously though, unreal performances from Andrew Miller, Cody Allen and Bryan Shaw carried the Indians and Corey Kluber’s slider is still Nasty. Gotta say it, Coward Move by LeBron to take all the attention away from the Indians and ruin the celebration by bringing Cleveland a title in June. Imagine how wild this run would be if the Cavs hadn’t won in July. Classic LeBron being all about himself. Here at Let Me Be Frank we say “we not me”, LeBron should take notes. Oh and big ups to Ryan Merrit for overcoming his shaky boots (Jose Bautista is such a punk) and dominating the Blue Jays in Toronto.
P.S: Pray for Trevor Bauer’s finger and a Danny Salazar comeback for the World Series. I do not like Josh Tomlin in Wrigley in a must win game.
