very excited to see the new look indians offense vs you're Reds even if it is only ST, im not sure if Swisher will be there since his mother passed away tonight

but im very interested in seeing what a lineup of
Bourn
Kipnis
ACab
Santana/Swisher
Swisher/Santana
Chisenhall
Reynolds
Brantley
Stubbs

can do and all the while being managed by Terry Franchona

im also interested to see what the rotation looks like this year, if they can just be a middle of the road rotation they should contend for the ALC just because alot of Pitching staffs in the AL dont have the talent 1-5 to hold the indians potential offense down for multiple games in row, just too much speed and power mix.

but i do think the new OF of Brantley-Bourn-Stubbs will make the rotation look better just because our OF was dreadful last year even with Choo who does have a strong arm, but theres alot of plays he cant make in RF so im interested to see how well he will pan out in CF, i feel like its going to end very bad.

how have the Reds looked in ST? any guys sitting out for a while?

We really don't need 2 Indians threads on top of Reds message board, do we?

Any chance we can get some merge action with the Bourn thread?

I second this motion.

Also, while the Indians have improved, I don't see them outplaying the Tigers in terms of offense or pitching this year. The pitching will be the biggest downfall. I think they're building in the right direction though.

It will be interesting to see where the Indians bat Stubbs during the regular season. I could see them batting him 9th on a regular basis.
