Last year, Cleveland's run meant the world to my dad and I. My grandfather was a lifelong Indians fan who got both of us into baseball and we lost him just before the season started. Tonight we sat and watched the game together and after that final out it was all tears, hugs, and giddy laughter.

This proves that tanking is a legit strategy and tigers, mariners, padres, etc better start racing to be the worst
