2017 Cleveland Indians Positional Previews: Shortstop

The EHC Podcast is proud to introduce to you an intense battle at shortstop for your Cleveland Indians! Okay, that’s all a lie. This podcast is simply Jim Pete and Mike Hattery finding different and strange ways to say amazing things about Francisco Lindor, who at 22, is already creating a “once-in-a-generation” legacy, if all things remain equal.

We talk Indians depth in the organization, with Jose Ramirez, Yu-Cheng Chang, Willie Castro and Ivan Castillo, and ponder Omar Vizquel’s Hall of Fame run, vs. Lindor’s already two stout seasons.
