I'm actually impressed with the Indians off-season. This is definitely their best off-season since the 2000 off-season where they picked up Juan Gonzalez and Marty Cordova. Will it be enough to win the division? Probably not, their starting pitching is still terrible, but at least they are trying and should be better than last season.
btw, the contract has a vesting option that is based on plate appearances. if triggered, this contract is 5/70. swisher doesn't miss time, he's played 150 games in all but two years of his career (not counting his 20 game september callup in 2004).
We are ready RIGHT NOW. We are ready to COMPETE this upcoming season!
But with rotation of Ubaldo, Masterson, Bauer, Talbot, Carrasco, Huff, Tomlin, Jeanmar Gomez, Kluber and McAllister that screams inconsistency and injuries and mediocrity? They must add another starter.
