    I'm really liking Brantley's improvement though. I feel like we can rely on him to give us a solid .280 and good fielding in left. I'd rather hang onto him unless we get an offer you can't refuse.

    Cavs, Indians, and Browns are winning it all in 2014-2015. Book it.

    Brantley can go if it gives a legit 2 or 3 starter (who would be our #1). He doesn't do anything that great.

    Have to give credit where it is due. Great offseason for the tribe. From flipping a guy they wouldn't be able to resign in Sin Choo for a stud prospect, to the signings of Swisher and Bourn, just a solid offseason.

    If Santana can rebound from his miserable season in addition to Masterson and Ubaldo, all of a sudden this is a legit squad. Damn I hope the Tribe can make some waves this year. I also hope they get more support than years past. Dolan has opened the pocket-book.

    I wouldn't call Santana's season miserable. He did really well in the second half.

    Man I can't remember the last time I was this excited for the baseball season to start. Can't wait to see the Tribe this year.

    We have no ace, but I think we've improved our offense enough that we can hopefully mask some of our pitching inconsistency. What we don't have in quality, we do have quantity. I fully expect Carrasco to have a bounce back year and Masterson and Myers to be solid. I think worst-case scenario this is a .500 team.

    I think we will see some shuffled lineups, platoons, and positional flexibility used well, unlike under Acta. This allows a team to survive injuries and slumps without throwing off rhythm.

    A good manager can make the entire roster feel like they are a key to the team's success. Francona is supposedly one of those managers.

    If that much better of a pitcher is available for Brantley, you do it. I'd prefer to keep Brantley and Stubbs. Never know when an injury can hit.

    I have been one of the most vocal fans, with my friends and family, when it comes to the Dolans. Due to their offseason moves I pledge to purchase atleast 30 tickets this year. Not sure how, nor in what packages, but they deserve credit this offseason. I still think they overspent in a few cases, but thats what it takes to get players here. Times are changing though.

    I think they may offer 30 game packages.

    Who was the kid who kept asking for Kyrie bobbleheads? Can I be the Indians version of him and keep asking about Swisher bobbleheads?

    Seriously though, have the Indians released their promotional schedule yet?

    They tweeted this morning that they would release it Wednesday. I would embed the tweet, but I am on my Kindle.
