    because he won't make the team and most likely won't accept a minor league role making this a waste of time....

    If we're willing to take a gamble on Giambi and all of the baggage surrounding him, why were we not willing to do the same for Manny Ramirez? This is a serious question.

    Like the Giambi invite. I don't expect him to make the team, but its another voice for our young players to listen to during spring training. Indians certainly have some intriguing names as Non-roster invites.

    Kazmir, Hill, Rayburn, Giambi, Francisco, Capps.

    I think Hill and Kazmir have the good shots given our lack of LHP on the roster. Rayburn as well given he can practically play anywhere in the field.

    I hope he juices hard for his final run... I would be shocked if he made the team.

    I'm usually fine with a veteran presence on a minor league deal, but I don't quite get this one

    Because Manny doesn't just have baggage. He has luggage.

    Unless I've missed something, I think this deal could pay significant dividends.

    Anyone know what Pedro Martinez is up to this spring? Tribe are giving away lottery tickets to anyone who could play five years ago...

    Indians are certainly doing their fair share to bring in "names" as invites. Whether these names have anything left is the more important question.

    All of these "names" being brought in are on the same level as Johnny Damon. We all know how that turned out.

    Hey if they don't show something in spring training they don't make the team....the large percent of these has-beens will be has-beens but if 1 or 2 find there stuff and stick it will be worth it. Low risk, medium to high reward. I like it, A LOT...count me as pumped for this season..
