    CLEVELAND — As the Cleveland Indians prepare to transition to their new name as the Cleveland Guardians, the team says the Brilliant Electric Sign Company started removing the "Script Indians" sign at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.

    With the World Series ending by tomorrow at the latest, the Cleveland Guardians are beginning the process of their public-facing rebrand away from their old name.

    The sign — which will be placed in storage — will be replaced by a similar “Guardians” script and the changes will begin in earnest “later this month.”

    Ridiculous. I'm surprised the Braves have been "allowed" to keep their name. And that tomahawk chop and "war chant" thing they do at the home games... how curious that as soon as Trump appeared and did it the other night, the media was all over it saying it was racist.

    Have the Indians settled up with the roller derby team yet?

    Well Braves is one thing, Indians are another. There are still living Indians who have pride so I get it. I am a black man, and I wouldn't like a team to be called the Negroes. There are other names that can be used....I don't get the tomahawk chop though. I know imitation is the best form of flattery, but there ain't no flattery at a ball game.

    Nope, I don't see how they can get away with it. Better lawyers I guess. Plus the name is dumb.
