Well...a logo symbolizing a spitball does seem appropriate...imma call it "Chief Wingnut"

Aside from the whingeball logo, the worst thing about it is that the team is keeping Slider as the mascot.

To be fair, I'm sure a lot of the team names that everyone is used to today sounded a little silly when they were first announced.

The Red Stockings? The Trolley Dodgers? The Giants? They only don't sound silly now because we are used to them.

Is it just a coincidence that the last 5 letters of "Guardians" are the same as "Indians"?

I'm sure it's no coincidence. One could argue that the word "indians" is still in the new name, if you kinda sorta look at it right...the letterforms are so similar that the "r" where it joins the "d" is much like the "n" and the one stroke of the "a" is much like the "i". Food for the conspiracy theorists. Me, I got no beef with the new name. Could have been something like "Outdians"...hey, wait! I got a ticket for this seat!
