Thanks to Pete Scribner, who alerted me to this “final solution.”

Better hide your Joe Charboneau bobblehead Dr. Wittmer.
I thought of you when I read this yesterday:
Greg Couch, FanHouse: “Hope sells. In Cleveland, hope smells. So many things have been taken away from Indians fans over the years, including two Cy Young Award winners. No wait, let me rephrase that: So many things have been given away, not taken, to save money. Each time, it cut fans deeply. In Chicago, fans still can’t get past the Cubs letting Greg Maddux go. That happened 19 years ago. In Cleveland, C.C. Sabathia was going to be a big part of the future. He was the hope. Then he was gone. Cliff Lee? Hope. Gone. See the pattern? With that baggage, this moment isn’t enough to draw 16,000 fans to Indians games. Believe in these guys? Cleveland believed in the Browns, but then John Elway killed them with The Drive. Hope. Gone. More belief, and then Earnest Byner fumbled. The team moved away. The Indians had a great team in the mid-to-late `90s, with the stadium selling out every night. They couldn’t quite win it. Then, LeBron left for Miami, and maybe enough was enough. The Decision, The Drive, The Fumble. Hope. Gone.”
Yet even more unfortunate results of “deconstruction.” Where will it all end? Detroit?
