stubbs/brantley platoon i guess?

or they move swisher to first and lose some of his defensive value playing him there.

stubbs's's entire value is on defense. i can't see them trading for him and then having him as a 4th outfielder. and certainly not as a dh. a .312 career obp? .277 last year?! he's a d something but h isn't it.

or do they move him to the mets? he's better than anything the mets have anywhere in their outfield.

i think it's a decent move by the indians. bourn is a really, really, really good defensive player. they're at least trying to prop up their ****** rotation and not losing much w/r/t futures. they lost their second round pick signing swisher and the competitive balance pick signing bourn. it's only going to cost them money to finish behind the tigers this year.
