Super-hero movies and television shows have saturated the market. With comic books supplying a nearly infinite supply of narrative options, producers have found an easy-in to creating memorable characters often with a built-in fanbase. One issue though is gritty landscapes with sullen characters have become far too commonplace. The industry is taking themselves too seriously in an effort to gain credibility. As such, The Lego Movie: The Second Part was a fantastic respite as the plot revolves around satirizing apocalyptic sets with grim storylines to remind viewers entertainment can be silly and fun.
Professional sports are similar in that they revolve around grown men playing a game for the enjoyment of their community, which is too often forgotten in the seriousness of competitive drives. Chris Antonetti and Mike Chernoff look to remind fans of the 2019 Cleveland Indians though as both MLB components of the Trevor Bauer trade are candidates for future renditions of the WFNY Players of Joy series.
Silly and fun is the Reyes wheelhouse.
While Puig can be prone to temper tantrums and will defend teammates should any scuffle occur, as the looming suspension shall remind us all, he is also a player whose positive emotions are often in the open as well.
There is a ton of good baseball content being written about the Indians. WFNY will look to highlight some of the best stuff here each week.
