Here you go all you "What If?" marketing campaign haters.

Guy kills it, consistently. Absolutely captures the average cleveland fan.

Got to see him in person a couple months back when he opened for Jim Gaffigan. His ten-minute act was the best part of the night, and I love Jim Gaffigan, so that's saying something.

Now...who else is thinking the Indians' advertising guys are ordered to think up a new campaign for next season? There's no way they keep such an easily mocked and ridiculed one.

Then again, will they want to pay an ad agency to create another campaign?

I think Mike Polk should do the Indians ad campaign next year.

I'd comment, but I have to go take a Dolan.

What if the Indians actually didn't try to get us to believe they were in a pennant race ... and to ignore the fact that they are closer to last place than first.

An early look at the next one those advertising wizards came up with.

The 'What If?' shit was bad last year.

The fact they kept it because they could either not afford a new campaign or weren't creative enough to come up with one, well, that fits this fucking organization perfectly.
