Nobody took more shit than Paul and Larry Dolan over the last six years. The cleveland sports media made Dolan out to be the worst owner in sports. But, they believed in Shapiro and never interfered with his work. It appears that most everything Shapiro asked for, they gave him. The revenue just ain't there to support the large payroll, but when the Jake(or Cleveland Clinic BallPark) is sold out next year, it could be a different story. When the revenue goes up, I have no doubt that the payroll will too. I don't think you can ask for much more out of an owner.
Still work left to do, Go Tribe!
