Those Indians fans who love to criticize Jhonny Peralta — the number seemingly grew exponentially each year — finally can relax.
Peralta was traded to the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday for minor-league pitcher Giovanni Soto.
Now, I didn’t hate on Peralta as much as most Indians fans, but that’s probably just because I don’t catch their games day-in, day-out.
I just know that Peralta drove the die-hard Tribe fans absolutely bonkers. He seemed lazy, his defensive range was terrible and his offense output has dipped these last few years.
