Congratulations To Roberto Alomar And Bert Blyleven

A huge shout out to two players who established their careers in other places, but spent time with the Indians as twilight began to overtake the bright sun of their youth.

Roberto Alomar, who played for the Tribe in 1999-2001 and batted .323 over that span, but who achieved his greatest heights with the Toronto Blue Jays, and Bert Blyleven, who was a mainstay for the Minnesota Twins and was with the Indians from 1981-1985, compiling a 48-37 mark with the Tribe (including a 19-7 record in 1984), are both in the Hall of Fame.

Good on you guys, good on you. And thank you for your contributions to our Little Team That Couldn’t on the shores of Lake Erie.
