The latest update with the Francisco Lindor contract situation felt inevitable.
Sure, when Cleveland Indians president Chris Antonetti insisted the team was working to keep its star shortstop beyond 2021, a small wave of hope rolled through the fan-base.
However, Lindor set an early March deadline for any extension talks, and we’ve reached early March. He’s since hit pause to focus on the season ahead, forcing fans to wonder if said season will be his last in town.
Regardless of how this plays out, this week’s news provided the Indians further confirmation of one thing.
They’re going to lose the PR battle here. Badly.
