    We really are going into spring training without a legit DH. Bummer.

    Rich Hill wouldn't be a bad guy to bring in for long relief.

    Only 32 years old, and he had a 1.83 ERA for the Red Sox in 25 relief appearances with 21 strikeouts in 19.2 IP.

    Why is that a bummer? We don't need a DH.

    Well, we do, but not a conventional DH.

    It's not that we aren't going into spring training without a DH, we are going into ST without 9 MLB level hitters.

    I recommend reading Francona, just got done with it. He is the man.

    Some things that were interesting from Indians perspective:

    1. He has really bad health. Like it's a constant struggle for him, dealing with bad knees and hips and stuff. Hope he is okay.
    2. The Red Sox were a hot mess in the front office, he had meetings where they talked about ratings and winning in a more exciting fashion. Lol. So it's not hard to see why he would want to come to the Cleve and not have to deal with that.
    3. Francona being a quant-friendly computer manager guy is a bit overblown. He likes to have as much information as possible, but he also sometimes goes against what the quant stuff says.
    4. Don't call him coach. It pisses him off. He is the manager. The other guys are coaches, he sees it as a sign of disrespect.
    5. It's not hard to see why players love him. He is a reasonable, sharp, and honest guy.

    Anyways, it's worth a read. Definitely made me psyched for the season (and continued my "holy toledo, we got tito" feeling). Maybe I should make that into a t-shirt. lol.

    Good news, especially for those that complain (rightly so) about not all games being on TV.

    The Indians are no longer pursuing Jim Thome, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal (Twitter link) reports, as the team doesn't want to devote a roster spot to a full-time DH. Thome is "healthy, working out [and] open to other clubs," Rosenthal notes. Thome said in December that he was open to continuing his career in 2013.
