In honor of Halloween, we’re looking at the three scariest Indians from 2021.
With Halloween right around the corner, I thought it’d be fun to dive into a little Halloween. We’re taking a peek at three of the scariest players that the Cleveland Indians have to offer on their roster. These aren’t the scariest-looking guys, so to speak, more so how scary they can be on the field.
It’s ironic that we’re talking about the Indians now, after the horror film-like season they just finished having. To say The Indians had a very rough year in 2021 would be an understatement. They overcame some adversity but struggled with others. Injuries sapped the team of a lot of its top talent for some time. Their replacements were oftentimes not up to snuff, and the mounting injuries took a toll.
The injuries themselves wouldn’t have been so bad if the minor league talent had been able to step up and make a difference, but the horror show that was wouldn’t let the Tribe catch a break. Even Terry Francona found himself down and out for half the year due to mounting issues with his hip and legs.
Like a typical slasher flick, the Indians best and brightest were seemingly picked off one after another. Unfortunately, it wasn’t some hockey mask-wearing monster who hunted the Indians down, but the cruelest, evilest thing in the world of sports: The Injury Bug.
Thankfully for fans everywhere, the Indians should be back to full strength in 2021 and they’ll be ready to compete for the AL Central once again. With that, we’re going to take a look at the three scariest players that wore the Indians jersey in 2021.
