Leave a comment

1The Cleveland Sports Insiders take a look today at what would happen to the Indians’ rotation internally should they pass on signing both Ubaldo Jimenez and Scott Kazmir. In that scenario, understanding that the Indians would also likely sign or trade for another starter, which internal options would step up to perhaps fill a roll in the rotation?

What exactly IS the Indians philosophy in the draft with regards to selecting starting pitchers? They are taking a lot of flack right now (and ridiculously so) for not selecting Michael Wacha, so is there an organizational deficiency that needs to be addressed?

Jim KNOWS that Albert Belle deserved the MVP, and that the false prophet, Mo Vaughn did not. He thinks that Mike and Greg Pruitt are truly related, because, c'mon, what are the chances? He cries at least once a day, watching videos of LeBron's block, followed by Kyrie's shot. He loves miracles at Richfield, Ron Harper, parking at Gate D, Alex Cole park dimensions, and the glorious Kenny Lofton, who is the REAL Alex Cole. When he isn't writing or talking Cleveland sports for EHC, he moonlights as a husband, father, coach, teacher, Twitter screamer, golfer, runner, and lover of spaghetti carbonara. He also commutes from Raleigh to the North Coast, because it builds character
