Cleveland Has Signed Lebron!

willy lebronThere will be a Lebron playing in Cleveland this year.  However, the Lebron we are speaking of is not LeBron James, and the team is not the Cleveland Cavaliers.  Instead, the Lebron we are referring to is Willy Lebron, a 32-year-old baseball player that was signed by the Cleveland Indians to a minor league deal today.

Lebron was a former member of the Kansas City Royals’ farm system, and he recorded a 4-2 record with 2 saves and a 3.02 ERA in 65.2 innings pitched between Double-A and Triple-A last season.

Going forward, it will be interesting to see what kind of reception Lebron receives from the Cleveland fans.  Will his name cause him to become Public Enemy No. 2 (LeBron James will always be Public Enemy No. 1, of course), or with the people of Cleveland be able to look past his name and welcome their new Lebron with open arms?

Only time will tell.
