The Indians will make fun of you if you criticize a spring training lineup

Monday March 9th, 2015

Spring training games don't matter. Not even a little bit. But that won't stop people on Twitter from chirping about the lineups. 

• ​Jim Harbaugh coached first base for A's on Saturday

• ​Even the Brewers' sausages need spring training

The Indians have found a way to deal with this. If you make a stink about who's playing in an exhibition game they will publicly shame you.

• ​Cubs honor Ernie Banks in first spring training game

Terry Francona must be pleased the franchise has his back.
