    Camargo re-resigned for a year. I must have been out of the baseball loop because I didn’t know he was a free agent.

    He wasn't a free agent, today is the non-tender deadline for teams to offer players still under team control a contract. Had they not offered him one, he'd have become a free agent.

    Gonna be a lot of that today.

    Amazing.

    Thanks—I’m pretty naive about baseball because I didn’t grow up discussing it like football and basketball (or soccer, which I played).

    RIP Dick Allen. The Phillies just retired his number this past season. Would have been easy to postpone it till fans are back in the stands, but it's always nice when these things aren't done too late.

    Amazing.

    Naps, Blues and Bronchos are the other franchise names. I think Fellers would be an awesome name.

    Just go with Spiders-- it's already used informally by fans and has been for a long time.

    As long as it's not "The Cleveland Baseball Team" like a suggestion I saw on MLB trade rumors

    If they have to go with an interim name for the season, it should be the Cleveland Major Leaugers.

    And there's a lot of support locally for "Guardians" as the new name, and I would whole-heartedly support it (along with Spiders, Fellers, Perch, Wild Things, Buckeyes, and a few others)

    The Braves were mentioned in the same article, but they've said they won't change their name repeatedly. They have gotten rid of the tomahawk chop and tried improving more ties with Native Americans.

    But if we did change our name what could it be? Seriously, there's nothing I can think of. We've been the Braves for so long without any other moniker. The Indians like was mentioned have been called the Spiders informally at least by people for years...we don't have that.
