Hype videos are common these days in MLB.
Each team, however, tries to make theirs both unique and exciting.
The Cleveland Guardians sure achieved those goals with theirs.
The franchise is returning to the playoffs after a one-year hiatus, and the whole town is excited about the Guardians’ chances.
As the team was getting ready to take the field in their Wild Card series against the Tampa Bay Rays, its hype video is sure making fans feel like the playoffs atmosphere is back in Cleveland.
“Too small? Too inexperienced? Too young? Don’t care. We’re here,” the Guardians’ Twitter account wrote, with their go-to hashtag #ForTheLand.
Too small? Too inexperienced? Too young?

The Guardians Are Using Critics As Fuel
Those are precisely the things people – analysts, writers, anchors, broadcaster, journalists, and even some fans – said about the Guardians.
They said they were small, yet they are here.
They said this group didn’t have playoff experience, but it didn’t matter in their quest for a spot.
They said the roster was perhaps a bit too young and could be overwhelmed by a playoff race, and guess what?
The Guardians are here.
The video shows some of the most thrilling plays of the year, including Josh Naylor‘s walk-off home run, Amed Rosario‘s timely hits, Emmanuel Clase‘s ninth-inning filth, Jose Ramirez wreaking havoc at the plate, Shane Bieber dominating on the mound, Trevor Stephan getting key outs, and Andres Gimenez playing with fire and passion.
Win or lose, the Guardians will be very fun to watch in the postseason.
Despite being small, young, inexperienced, and not too powerful when it comes to home runs, the Guardians are good enough to knock out the Rays from the postseason.
