Should I hate them? I never really saw the Indians as a factor to the Reds and always wished them well in the AL. Most Indians fans I know are nice and feel the same about the Reds. I know this one though that does nothing but hate on the Reds and I can't figure out why. Now the Indians are winning some and he's really getting under my skin. How do you all view the Indians?

"I didn't know they still had a team" "yeah, we got uniforms and everything". Still rings true today.

Jake Taylor... Wish we had this guy as the 3rd String Catcher...

"This guys dead!?"

"Well... Cross him off the list then."

OCAB is what is helping them . Not just agreeing with Sutcliffe either. I really believe this.

Never really paid much attention to the Indians, although most of the people I know from Cleveland were fans and supported the team despite them being terrible. They all enjoyed going to the Reds games we went to in college and never had anything bad to say about the team.

Should these two clubs ever meet in the World Series, though, I think the rivalry would get VERY intense really quickly.

Cabrera has an OBP under .300 and already has a -2.6 UZR; that's awful. I'd say Grady Sizemore's impressive play, Travis Hafner's reemergence, and Matt LaPorta finally playing solid ball has a lot more to do with their record so far -- not to mention Shin-Soo Choo, who is finally starting to play more like himself, going 8-18 with 2 HR in his last five games. Justin Masterson has also pitched pretty well.

They have the worst attendance in MLB this year and also last year. Not too many in Cleveland care about their team enough to buy a ticket so I wouldn't pay much attention to some fair weather fan who like to puff up his feathers.

I would like to see a I-71 World Series. It would be absolutely crazy here in Ohio.

I hate the Indians, especially because i live in Northeast Ohio. They are some of the biggest bandwagon fans that there are.

I have nothing against the Indians except that they're in the AL which makes me largely indifferent to them.

I don't have a problem with the team - its the fans. You could have thrown hand grenades in the stands and not killed anyone before that run they made in the 1990's and then all of the sudden everybody was lifelong Indian fans - but couldn't name Andre Thornton, Duane Kuiper or Bert Blyleven if their life depended on it.

Then they get comparing those teams (who won zero WS Titles) to the Big Red Machine and saying how position by position they were better - please.

I have a friend who mouths off right now to me right now as well. The bad thing for him and the Tribe is history is not on their side - but they are playing well - you've got to give them that.

I've always been sort of a closet Indians fan. Whenever they play the Reds I hope the Reds kill them, as I have many friends that are Indians fans, but aside from that I wish no ill will towards them.

Thats funny to me, I totally get what your saying, but in NC I cant recall ever meeting an Indians fan. Not making fun of them, just an afterthought really, one of those "oh yeah, Cleveland DOES have a team" things....

Don't hate 'em. I'm indifferent to the AL.

I'm kinda tired of playing them in interleague. That lost it's appeal years ago. Now, it's just another series.
