    I'd kiss Walt right on the lips if he'd let me.

    Maybe even some heavy petting.

    Don't tell my wife.

    Xavier Paul
    Devin Mesoraco
    A bench usually only consists of five players, so probably no Burriss.

    I can't wait. This feels like one of those moves that can't be quantified by RC or any individual stat just because Choo fills a void so perfectly. 1-6 in this lineup is going to be an absolute bear to work through for opposing pitchers.

    Well, he does play all three positions. I would think it's sort of hard to find a 4th OF that does absolutely everything well because, you know, they don't last as a 4th OF for long.

    I'm happy with Chris where he is. And that's a change -- since I was a regular of the "Give Heisey a chance to start!" brigade on this board for about two years. Bruce-Choo-Ludwick is a darn competent threesome, even if the D takes a slight step back.

    Another part of the deal is that Dusty made Cleveland promise they would bat Stubbs leadoff and Didi second, because the CFer always bats first and the SS bats second.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I think Arizona might get a bit upset if the Indians kept penciling in their starting shortstop as hitting 2nd on THEIR lineup card. There might even be a rule against that sort of thing. *grin*

    I touched on that earlier, in that Stubbs actually would have been a perfect compliment to Choo on the roster, but presumably the Indians were more interested in having Stubbs as a potential starter. I don't think Heisey is a great fit, and Paul fills a different role. I would think Jocketty would like to transfer Heisey for a better fitting piece, but easier said than done.
