The case for Mayfield: He's the future of the Browns.
The case against: He hasn't done anything yet.
The case for Lindor: Mega-talented and plays the game with joy.
The case against: Will have to swap him out when he eventually signs with the Yankees.
The case for Ramirez: Scrappy with lots of heart, just like Cleveland.
The case against: Nobody outside of Indians fans and maybe his own family knows who he is.
The case for Francona: Has a .561 winning percentage and a pennant as Tribe manager.
The case against: How do we keep losing to the Twins? The Twins?!? Come on. The Twins?
The case for Miocic: Unprecedented three-time defending heavyweight champ.
The case against: Only Eastlake residents can properly pronounce his name.
The case for Symon: The brisket at Mabel’s.
