Just went to my User CP and escorted brian back into clarkgriswold's Ignore Lounge to cool his heels on my screen for a while. I can't deal with this^ all hot stove season.

Please, gentlemen, do not clown-quote the 1227 frivolously.

If he posts something truly funny or epically stupid, I trust you won't be able to contain yourselves. Those are always good.

By Jordan Bastian MLB.com @MLBastian
1:01 PM ET

CLEVELAND -- A point of contention for some and beloved by others, the Chief Wahoo logo will be removed from Cleveland's uniforms beginning with the 2019 season.

On Monday, Major League Baseball announced that the Indians will discontinue the use of the divisive logo on their uniforms after the 2018 campaign. The decision was made mutually by MLB and the team, which had been working together to come up with an appropriate timeline and solution to the issue, as it gained steam in recent years.

• Indians' Chief Wahoo logo Q&A

"Major League Baseball is committed to building a culture of diversity and inclusion throughout the game," MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement. "Over the past year, we encouraged dialogue with the Indians organization about the club's use of the Chief Wahoo logo. During our constructive conversations, [Indians owner] Paul Dolan made clear that there are fans who have a long-standing attachment to the logo and its place in the history of the team.
"Nonetheless, the club ultimately agreed with my position that the logo is no longer appropriate for on-field use in Major League Baseball, and I appreciate Mr. Dolan's acknowledgement that removing it from the on-field uniform by the start of the 2019 season is the right course."

MLB and the Indians opted to have the Native American caricature removed from the on-field uniforms next year, but the logo will still have a limited retail presence in Northeast Ohio and Goodyear, Ariz. In order to maintain control of the trademark, ensuring that another group could not seize it and profit, the Indians needed to retain some level of retail involving the logo.

Cleveland may consider adding a new complementary logo in the future, but it will focus on the Block C as the primary symbol for now. There are no plans to change the team's name.

"We have consistently maintained that we are cognizant and sensitive to both sides of the discussion," Dolan said in a statement. "While we recognize many of our fans have a long-standing attachment to Chief Wahoo, I'm ultimately in agreement with Commissioner Manfred's desire to remove the logo from our uniforms in 2019."

The decision to remove the logo on the Indians' uniforms next year coincides with Cleveland hosting the 2019 MLB All-Star Game, which was awarded to the franchise last January. The Indians have indicated that MLB did not force the team to remove the logo in order to be granted the right to host the Midsummer Classic. Cleveland's pitch to hold the event began years ago, and it became a strong focus during the team's postseason run in '16.

During the 2016 American League Championship Series between the Indians and Blue Jays, the logo and team name were thrust to the forefront in a legal battle in Toronto.

Douglas Cardinal, an advocate for indigenous people, filed a request for an injunction with the Supreme Court of Justice in Toronto in an effort to block the use of the name and logo during the games at Rogers Centre. That initial request was rejected, but the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal ruled in June that an Ontario court could hear the case. In December, MLB lawyers argued that such a case should be heard in Canadian federal court.

Prior to the 2014 season, the Indians began the process of gradually moving away from the Chief Wahoo mark, designating the Block C as the team's new primary logo. The secondary logo continued to be used on some home caps, as well as a sleeve patch on the club's uniforms. Last season, the Block C replaced the other logo as the sleeve patch on MLB's holiday-issued uniforms.

Imagery similar to Chief Wahoo can be traced back to use in the Cleveland Plain Dealer in the 1930s, and the team used different versions of Native American-themed logos throughout its early history. The Chief Wahoo, which evolved over the years, was originally created in 1946 by the late Walter Goldbach, and it did not appear on Cleveland's uniforms until '47.

Since becoming MLB Commissioner in 2015, Manfred has been open about the desire to work with Dolan and the team on finding a solution for the logo situation. Both sides worked to find a resolution that respected those offended by the caricature, as they heard the arguments of those in support of the historic logo and also found a way to keep the image's rights out of the hands of another party.

Jordan Bastian has covered the Indians for MLB.com since 2011, and previously covered the Blue Jays from 2006-10. Read his blog, Major League Bastian, follow him on Twitter @MLBastian and Facebook.

The Tribe will have a payroll of 130-135M this season which will be the highest in their history and somewhere between 15-17th in MLB this year. They are still a small market team in a sport without a salary cap. That is an MLB issue not a Tribe issue. They cannot pay everyone like a Boston or NY team can. Still have a great rotation and good bullpen and two young stars in Frankie and Jose. They paid 60M for 3 years for EE last year too. I think the glass is still at least half full for 2018. They have the assets to get a bat at trade deadline if they need one. Rumor of talks with Brewers right now to get Domingo Santana (30 HR as a RF last year and he is 25 years old).

Is that anyway to treat a close friend? Admittedly, I may do the same, especially since he is probably behind the Chief Wahoo fiasco. Who else?

I love this....



Wahoo is so offensive we must remove any trace of it from the uniform and ballpark... but we will maintain the trademark and sell it in the team shop LOL



What a bunch of disingenuous liberal PC virtue signaling nonsense. If it really offends you wash your hands of it completely. Of course it would be pretty embarrassing when the street vendors are killing your team shop.

So let me get this straight ... Chief Wahoo is so offensive we need to take it off the uniforms, next year ... but not so offensive to stop selling it ... and making money off of it ... am I wrong, but doesn't it sound a little sleazy?

Any who.... who does everyone think gets the last two spots in the rotation?

I think it will be Clevenger and Tomlin. Salazar goes to the pen and becomes a lights out 7th inning guy then the closer after Miller and Allen leave🤤

Danny Salazar hurt again.....anyone surprised?? Put him in the bullpen when he returns and see if he can stay healthy pitching one inning two or three times a week. If he can then he can replace Miller or Allen when they leave after this season as free agents. Clevenger earned his spot in rotation last year and Tomlin can be #5 again this year. Merritt is there too if needed.

Lol right... I can't stand cheaters. He is a great clubhouse guy, I would think the utility outfield spot is between him and Upton if they don't plan on having Gonzalez out there.

Catcher Francisco Mejia and RHP Triston McKenzie are ranked in just about every publication's "Top 30 prospects in baseball" lists. First baseman Bobby Bradley is ranked between the #60 and the #75 prospect by most experts.

The Tribe farm system is a little thinner than it was two years ago, because so many kids have graduated from the minors and are now playing in the bigs. Or they were included in the Andrew Miller trade. However, the Tribe's minor league system is still ranked about 12th or 13th.
