The 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?
