No Surf in Cleveland

The Tribe was dissed again yesterday by a big name relief pitcher. This time, it was Trevor Hoffman who told the Indians that he just wanted to be friends, opting for a two-year, $13.5 million deal to stay with the Padres. However, Hoffman went out of the way to let us know it's not us, it's him, and that lots of girls would really, really love to go out with a nice guy like us. Check it out here.

If your own B.S. meter isn't redlining on this one people, you need to get it adjusted. Hoffman may be letting us down easy with his mealy mouthed line of crap, but any way you slice it, what he's really saying is "you're ugly and your mother dresses you funny."

So, it looks like we're going to the prom with the fat girl again (no offense Wickie).

Hope Vinny's right about the trading market, because the Euclid Beach Band had the problem with free agency pegged years ago:

And man we can't impress the girls on the beach
The way they do out in LA
Cause there's no surf in Cleveland
There's just no surf in Cleveland U.S.A.

The Hoffman rejection does provide a nice opportunity to rename the franchise, and dispose of the offensive (to some, me not among them) Chief Wahoo. Thus, our new baseball team name, the Cleveland Stalking Horses.

"Stalking Horses" isn't bad, but "Beotches" is probably more accurate.

"Paupers" is even more accurate.
