When was the last time that fans ran onto the field after a WS win?

When it comes to CLE I'll be running out there.  Hopefully with thousands of others who have waited their entire lifetime as well.
Maybe it won't be long in the coming, they did finish off the season really solidly this year, especially the final stretch.

Lol. We can't afford to resign half our guys.
My grandfather is lucky he saw a WS championship at 9 years old. That's the last time it's been here.

Anyone else surprised by the amount of action so far or was I the only one expecting more of a pitchers game?

Bottom line, it's hard to argue that Swisher is overpaid. You probably don't make the playoffs if you throw a scrub off the bench in there instead of him. He was probably your 3rd most productive position player. The other 2 are still on their rookie contracts, so of course they provide better value, but you can't build a contender solely out of players still on their base contracts (at least not with Cleveland's payroll).
Great play by Swisher just now.  3 strikeouts for the day and then he was just amazing warming the bench in the bottom of the 9th while Dickerson pinch-hit for him and set up a game tying 2 run HR.

At least we're not overpaying for that bench-warming.

I guess you forgot the rest of what I wrote at the end of last year.
A bigger concern is that he's owed $15m in each of the next 3 years, and he's definitely on the decline.
My point then was that his performance in last year's regular season was easily worth his salary for that year, but the rest of the contract would be much harder for him to live up to. And here we are, a year later, with his salary being higher than the first year of the deal and his production declining precipitously.

Why look at the actual salary (which is just a numbers game) instead of the average annual salary?
