The Cleveland Indians aren't having a great start to the season, putting together a 6-6 record through 12 contests.

Well, it got even worse the other day when even the closed captioning during a game took a shot at them.

There has been talk about a potential name change for Cleveland, but I don't think the "Cleveland Idiots" is near the top of the list.

Clevinger didn't do much to redeem things for Cleveland in that game either, giving up 4 earned runs with 2 home runs and 5 walks in just 4.0 innings in a 4-1 loss.

Cleveland is going to need to pick things up to avoid being the butt of jokes like this all season. Of course, maybe whoever was doing the closed captioning just happened to see what the team's official Twitter account posted on Tuesday.
