The "Daisy Dukes" could make for a more interesting mascot.
I'm here for this...

This is very welcome news. The sooner the announcement the better.
Whatever the name is, I hope we will all get behind it. They will be our team.
I, for one will of course miss the Indians. They've been my team since childhood. Been here for generations.
I assume the club records will be frozen so everything will be new.

Guardians is such a generic and lame name. Hopefully it's the Spiders, but also idgaf since I haven't watched a game in 2 years so don't listen to me lol.

See, now I'm looking up Guardians concepts and feeling sad, knowing that if that is indeed the choice, the actual designs will probably not look anything like them.
Heaven help us if they keep everything the same except the name.

I hope that sandstone replaces white in any color scheme they chose. Will definitely be unique

I’m all in favor of the Guardians name. It’s pretty unique to the sports world and has direct ties to the city of Cleveland.

Serious question - I haven't read all 44 pages. What are the ties to the city? (At first glance, I do not like the name, but really, whatever.... but I am curious as to the connection.)

Guessing Steamers was not considered? :conf (11):
