I always kinda hated this time of year …

Sure. there’s a new season upon us. But there’s one thing I never really liked to see during spring training — red-tag season.

I always felt bad that Bobby Gentry was singled out in the documentary about my 1988 Indians team. We made several rounds of cuts, but only Gentry here was shown getting a legitimate red tag.

He was sent down to Colorado Springs, our brand-new Triple-A club that was managed by former big-leaguer Steve Swisher that season, and he did pretty well but it wasn’t enough to get back to the bigs.

He later became a long-time fielding coach for the San Diego Padres, and I hear his boy made his big-league debut last season.
