Albert Belle visited the Cleveland Indians at Spring Training today. Albert Belle retired 10 years ago. Albert Belle will be 46 in August. Albert Belle does not look like a guy who played during my lifetime. Just look at that picture of Belle with Sandy Alomar Jr. (45), Carlos Baerga (43), Mike Hargrove (62) and Kenny Lofton (44). Belle looks more likely to have played in Cleveland with Hargrove in the early 80’s than with those other guys in the 90’s.
Spoiler: the Pistons didn’t like it.
A sign of things to come? Or underclassmen getting advice elsewhere?
It’s a Festivus miracle!
Bowl games and football, that’s what December does.
It’s an honor just to be nominated.
