Re: “Cleveland Indians in the Midst of Heated Team-Name Controversy (Again)

We should go back to the best name we ever had: The Blues. The uniforms would remain mostly unchanged. The caps with the "C" could stay. And we wouldn't be pissing off a whole race of people.

Re: “The Cleveland Infants And Other Outmoded Baseball Team Names

The Cleveland Blues! This is by far the best historical option. Why was it left out?

They were the Cleveland Blues from 1882-84, right between being the Forest Cities and the Spiders. What's more, when they were the Spiders, their nickname was still the Blues.

Reviving that name would be perfect because the franchise has always prominently featured the blue color, nomatter the name. The uniforms could be mostly unchanged. The "C" hat would still work. And could you imagine the battle of Ohio, the Blues vs. the Reds? That would be awesome!
