Then Baltimore should have been the 1997 World Series Champions.....
Francona didnt come here to lose. Be afraid Tigers. Be VERY afraidThis is true. I am sure part of the lure of Cleveland, besides being where his daddy played, was that the Tribe would bring in some better players. I don't know that they are with the Tigers, but I think their lineup looks pretty decent. They need Ubaldo to pitch like a top of the rotation guy, and not a bottom guy. Trevor Bauer also needs to harness his control issues, but what an arm.
Unless Swisher moves to 1st base and Reynolds goes to DH I doubt that Stubbs will be in the everyday lineup. Trade bait?I just read that the plan is to play Stubbs in RF, Brantley in LF, Swisher at 1B, and Reynolds at DH. Swisher would also play some RF, while Reynolds plays 1B.
