  • I think I'm okay with the Crisp trade now.

    Wow, this really got me thinking. I don't agree with all of it, but it is very strong.

    See what a box of tissues and a good movie can do?

      I think that article convinced me. I didn't realize Shoppach performed so well last year. Sounds like he's ready for the show.

          i agree with the deal

          basically given the fact that crisp could be a decent cf and the Indians did not need one made his value good, expendable to the tribe. I love the key points about his onbase and his weak arm. The complete truth is you need a better hitter out of left field than crisp maybe Michaels is not the guy, but in some ways a better fit.

                The other thing is, Coco only signed for one season with Boston. We got all those years out of those guys, and Coco could be gone from Boston after six months of play

                  If Coco plays well, I doubt that he will only last one season with the Red Sox.

                      Then why a one-year contract? :noidea

                        Arbitration. Most players are dealt with on a year by year basis through their arbitration years. It's easier for a team to pay a player accordingly based on performance during his club control years instead of handing him a multi-year deal. For what it's worth (nothing really), I think this trade is great for the Indians and makes them much better if Marte is the player he projects to be. If Michaels can produce full time like he has while platooning, they should be no worse off than last year and maybe better. Michaels should certainly score more runs than Crisp. Does anyone know where he's likely to hit in the order?
                        Maybe #2?

                          You got it. The number two spot is what I hear. Makes sense to me:

                          Sizemore
                          Michaels
                          Peralta
                          Pronk
                          Victor
                          Perez
                          Belliard
                          Boone
                          Blake
