Now That Cliff Lee Is Gone, It's Time For Mark Shapiro to Trade Himself Away

Written by Daniel Wolf

Article originall posted on Wahoo Pow Wow: An Unofficial Cleveland Indians News Source

So now Cliff Lee has been traded away and there are also rumors that Victor Martinez is getting shopped before the trading deadline.

What is wrong with the Cleveland Indians upper management?

For the second straight year, the Indians have traded away the reigning Cy Young award winner for a bunch of future prospects.

How is it that Mark Shapiro can even keep his job anymore?

He is not improving the team for now, he is trying to improve it for the future (which he has been doing ever since he came onboard), but who really cares about the future anymore.

Sports are about winning now and fans want to see a winning team right now too.

Future prospects may never pan out, but a proven major league player is just that...a proven player, especially when it is a Cy Young pitcher.

The Indians are once again the butt of all the jokes in the MLB, and look more like the team in the movie Major League, than the team from the mid-1990s.

Shapiro should just trade himself to another team for a future general manager because right now Indians fans would rather have a future GM in office than the guy that currently resides in it.

A poll was taken by Fox 8 News in Cleveland and an astounding 95-percent of voters said that they hated the Lee trade.

Get a clue Shapiro, or get out of Cleveland.

It may be time to start the "Mike Hargrove for GM" club asap.
