The Cleveland Indians announced that they will indeed be changing their team nickname Sunday night. In your opinion, what should their new nickname be?

I'm in favor of either the Spiders or Naps because I love baseball history

I'd be happy with Spiders, but I am also going to root for Forest Citys lol. It'll probably be Spiders or something patriotic. I don't think Naps will be the choice because so few fans will get it without an explanation.

Yeah I think Spiders is fine as well. I do think it will be that or something to pay homage to a historical aspect.

There's a good article on Baseball Prospectus talking about players from the terrible Spiders team. Based on the players on that roster, I am now pulling for Cleveland Pretzels lol. Here is the article if anyone is a subscriber.

As an on-looker Cavs fan (but not Indians fan), I hope they go with Spiders.
At least my takes will never be as bad as 6-year-old me thinking the winless Dolphins would beat the undefeated Patriots.

Naps is such a great shout. But def a deep cut that a lot of people wouldn't appreciate sadly.

Honestly, I've been rooting for that one the second they announced the change lol. But I suppose since Cleveland actually has time to carefully and thoughtfully rebrand compared to Washington, that name won't be the case.
