    oh man, I feel like this will bring a whole new, positive light to Major League Baseball and bring on a much needed renaissance of team names and logos.

    The world is now a better place.

    Thank the Lord, and may God Bless You and your families.

    Jim Thome does not want Chief Wahoo on the cap of his Hall of Fame plaque

    There was little question that Jim Thome was going to wear a Cleveland Indians cap on his Hall of Fame plaque. He said today, however, that he does not want the Indians cap he wore for the vast majority of his time in Cleveland to be depicted. Specifically, he does not want Chief Wahoo on his cap. He wants the block-C:

    “I know my decision would be to wear the ‘C’ because I think it’s the right thing to do,” Thome said. “I think I need to have a conversation with the Hall of Fame because of all the history and everything involved. I just think that’s the right thing to do.”

    Hall of Fame inductees are allowed to voice their preference of the cap for their plaque, but the Hall of Fame gets final say on the matter in order to maintain a semblance of historical accuracy. In the past, that role has been exclusively dedicated to policing the choice of which team’s cap a player who played on multiple teams was wearing in order not to show him wearing a cap of a team for which he only briefly played. I am not aware of an instance in which a player chose to wear an uncommon cap design for a team which, otherwise, would be acceptable on the plaque.

    Not being Native American, I can’t really justify my opinion that I think this is stupid. I mean, statistics I’ve seen show that native Americans don’t find these sports logos/names offensive, but who knows?

    What I will say, is that Max Kellerman is a complete dweeb. His ongoing fight to get the fighting Irish logo removed is utterly ridiculous. Being married into an Irish family, working with more Irishmen than you can possibly count and growing up in an Italian Irish neighborhood, I can say with out question that the fighting Irish logo is BELOVED by Irish Americans. I’ve seen that logo tattooed on more people than I care to recall, lol. Not to mention to never ending parade of fighting Irish hoodies and tshirts you’ll see on people at local pubs and in any police facility. Max should stop trying to talk for people he has no relationship with.

    The worst part of this situation, regardless of personal feelings, is that the organization sees how this can be disparaging and will remove the logo... after next season.

    Josh has it right. If you're going to remove it, remove it immediately.
