From MLB's Eddie Grant in 1918 to the NFL's Pat Tillman in 2004, athletes from the major pro leagues were among those who died in overseas wars. Grant, a former infielder for Harvard and the Indians, Phillies, Reds and Giants died in France in World War I. Tillman, a star on defense for Arizona State and the Cardinals, enlisted after 9/11 and was killed in Afghanistan. On Memorial Day and always we remember with appreciation all who sacrificed for our safety and freedom.

Danny Salazar's demotion to the bullpen is one way of dealing with his slump, but with Trevor Bauer and Josh Tomlin pitching even worse, the issue runs deeper. The Tribe's vaunted rotation is last in the AL in ERA (5.02) and tied for next to last in quality starts.
