With the Indians on a roll and the weekend about as perfect as you could imagine, let’s hit Lazy Sunday so I can sit and enjoy some High Lifes while taking in a Sunday matinee:
Paul Hoynes correctly surmises the whole Milton Bradley situation, which the Indians’ properly identified when they shipped him out to L.A. for what most called “peanuts”.
Did anyone see that he got traded to the Padres for…Andrew Brown?
For those of you scoring at home (first of all, get a life or at least another hobby if you keep score at home), that’s the same Andrew Brown that came to the Tribe from the Dodgers with Gutz for Bradley!
Then, just when you think that Ocker has turned a corner and could offer some insight, witness the mailbag.
Ken Rosenthal has Victor and Grady in his AL starting lineup for the All-Star team with C.C. in the team picture.
Sounds about right. Though, after last night, C.C. may want to count on starting in the game at whatever they call the stadium in San Francisco now.
Funny how so many of these high-priced FA never pan out…but a high payroll is the only way to ensure success in MLB, right?
Never mind how dreadful these deals look two years from now, how many of these deals were seen a laughers in the off-season (Lugo, Pierre, Baltimore bullpen, and Igawa) that look even worse a mere ½ season later.
It sure sounds like Gagne just wants to go someplace to win...right?
