Season in Preview

A lot can change by Opening Day, but as 2007 becomes 2008, this is who is projected to take the field for the Indians:



CFGrady Sizemore
2BAsdrubal Cabrera
DHTravis Hafner
CVictor Martinez
1BRyan Garko
SSJhonny Peralta
LFDavid Dellucci
RFFranklin Gutierrez
3BCasey Blake
SPC.C. Sabathia
SPFausto Carmona
SPJake Westbrook
SPPaul Byrd
SPAaron Laffey
CLJoe Borowski
Grading on a curve: As expected, the Indians haven't given us
many transactions to grade this winter. With the bulk of the lineup
already under contractual control, this figured to be a quiet
offseason. Give the Tribe credit for being proactive on the bullpen
front with the signing of Kobayashi and mark them down for one of the
league's stronger pitching staffs with Sabathia, Carmona, Jake
Westbrook and Paul Byrd all returning and Aaron Laffey, Jeremy Sowers
and Cliff Lee set to compete for the fifth rotation spot. Still, the
Indians could afford to add a run-producing bat in the corner outfield,
and the Tigers' recent acquisitions of Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle
Willis prove repeating in the Central will be no easy task. With all
this information at hand, give the Indians a 5 out of 10 on the winter
grading scale, for now, though locking up Sabathia would boost that
rating considerably.
Arrivals: RHP Masahide Kobayashi, IF Jamey Carroll

Departures: LF Kenny Lofton, RF Trot Nixon, IF Chris Gomez

The Road Ahead: The Indians hope to have some resolution
to the Sabathia talks -- positively or negatively -- by the time they
report to Spring Training on Feb. 14. In the meantime, it's still
possible they could use their starting pitching depth to make a deal
that affects the '08 club.

Wish we could get Sabathia since he has not signed yet!

CFGrady Sizemore
Didn't he play RF last year??? I remember him there in the tiger/Indian games I watched.

Grady Sizemore has never appeared in a game in Rightfield. He has appeared twice as a DH (once in '06 and once in '07).
