Geoffrey "Geoff" Scovil earned his law degree at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, near where several generations of his family was raised. Geoff moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, in 1998 and quickly planted roots in the community. Geoff started out working at the Law Office of the Public Defender, then established a solo practice. Although he calls Albuquerque his home, Geoffrey Scovil is forever a fan of the Cleveland Indians of the Major League Baseball (MLB).
The Indians reached the MLB playoffs for the third consecutive year, but lost to the Houston Astros in the American League Division Series. Cleveland, which finished first in the American League (AL) Central Division and lost the World Series to the Chicago Cubs in 2016, still boasts a talented roster of players.
However, a lot of those players require new contracts before the 2019 season. In particular, the Indians' outfield could be hit hardest if players with expiring contracts aren't re-signed in the offseason. Outfielders Michael Brantley, Melky Cabrera, Rajai Davis, Lonnie Chisenhall, and Brandon Guyer are all on expiring contracts, although Cleveland have a team option on Guyer.
Relief pitchers Andrew Miller and Cody Allen are also impending free agents, although the team has adequate depth in the bullpen thanks to the mid-season acquisitions of Adam Cimber and Brad Hand. Other impending free agents include infielder Adam Rosales, right-handed pitcher Josh Tomlin, and third baseman Josh Donaldson.
Geoff Scovil received a BA in history, philosophy, and ethnic studies from the University of Texas at Austin.
