Indians broadcaster Matt Underwood: Stop whining and enjoy the ride
Indians television announcer Matt Underwood, like his fictional counterpart in “A League of Their Own”, has seen enough to know that he’s seen too much.
I can’t believe how much whining I’ve been hearing the past week. Seriously, did anyone out there really believe this team was going to be in first place at the end of April? On Memorial Day? Every pre-season publication I read had the Tribe looking at a 90+ loss season and bringing up the rear in the AL Central this year. So why not enjoy the ride? Why are so many people who call themselves Indians fans simply standing on the sideline and waiting for the proverbial “other shoe to drop?”
