In Columbus, there might be fewer Cleveland Indian fans than there are in the home city, but there is a good populus of them. Having the Triple-A affiliate based in the city does make the fan base grow. With that, there are people who want the same accountability held that fans in Cleveland expect.

The latest example took place earlier this week when WBNS-FM radio host Bruce Hooley, who used to be a sports writer for the Cleveland Plain Dealer, wanted answers from the top of the organization. In that, he wanted to talk to general manager Mark Shapiro. Unfortunately, he was unavailable to comment. Therefore, Shapiro sent assistant GM Chris Antonetti to face the questions from Hooley and his co-worker, former Ohio State and NFL linebacker Chris Spielman.

The following audio clip is of the conversation that took place: Note: WBNS AM and FM are part of the Indians Radio Network.
