    Wild Things is by far the best choice.

    There is a minor league baseball team in Washington, PA named the Wild Things

    That article seems to think there's no way they go with Cuyahogas or Buckeyes. Considering an NHL team in Ohio went with Blue Jackets, and still nobody knows what in the hell a Blue Jacket is, I'd take those odds.

    I don't know if they'd go with Spiders. That is an historic name but they lost an MLB worst 134 games in 1899

    I didn't see the Cleveland Steamers on the list.
    For the last few years I've been snatching up Chief Wahoo gear at garage sales in anticipation of the inevitable.

    No way it will be Rockers. They were Cleveland's old WNBA franchise when they had one in the late 90's and early 2000's. Local talk is it will be Guardians. Guardians would be my choice as it has history with the statues on the Hope Memorial Bridge that is across the street from the ballpark.

    As an Indians fans and Clevelander, I know Guardians has been mentioned many many times as a local favorite.

    I see Wikipedia has a great pics of the guardians. IE NO PICTURED.
    Nobody under 80 years old . Or anybody outside of Cleveland will even know the story.
    Plus a local beer company already uses the logo.

    If the goal is to make an already very small market team. Even smaller, NAILED IT.

    RAIDERS
    KNIGHTS
    GUARDIANS LOL

    The OTHER rumor is that it will be the Ohio Indians as some find Cleveland very offensive.

    Blue Jacket was a Shawnee warrior, little known outside of Ohio. Tecumseh also fought the whites in Ohio and made a bigger name for himself. The team name has nothing to do with Civil War soldiers, so far as I know, but if I remember correctly, the warrior Blue Jacket did wear a uniform jacket that had been taken from a white soldier.

    I always liked and respected Indians, unlike most other kids growing up in the Fifties. The team name is most likely what started me on that path. "Indians" as a name supposedly originated with a Penobscot named Sockalexis, who played for the Spiders. No disrespect intended.

    First Nations is a more acceptable term, but just like Indians is a bit awkward for the simple reason that Ohio has no federally recognized Indian tribes. Ohio tended to be a travel zone and more or less temporary residence, so the rationale goes. I find this ironic, since Ohio was inhabited by Indians for at least a thousand years, as the mounds in the southwestern part of the state attest. We lived for 24 years just across the Cuyahoga from the Indian Signal Tree, which still stands today as a memorial to the famous Portage Trail. Mag and I waded the river one especially dry summer and tried to find it. Later, a path was cleared on the south side of the river and a patch of grass put in, and weird people used to hold solstice ceremonies beside the tree that we could hear from our backyard.

    I have no suggestions as of yet for a new name, but am disappointed that I will never see the Indians win a Series unless they do it this coming season. Just don't call 'em the Mistakes or the Burning Rivers.
