You have it all right but three things.1. They will carry 12 pitchers. So, that means that the 5th OFer (Gutierrez/Choo) you listed is not needed. (I personally prefer the old 11-man staff, but for whatever reason the Indians the past few years prefer a 12 man staff).2. There is no chance for Choo to make this team. He hits left-handed, the same as Dellucci and Nixon. The only chance a "5th" outfielder would have is to play versus lefties, which means he has to be a switch-hitter or right-handed. Also, really, Blake is the 5th OFer on this team (or potentially even the utlity guy). Unless there is an injury or trade, Choo is going to Buffalo.3. Davis is out of options. he makes the team or is lost on waivers.(Oh, and unless he gets injured or is God-awful in camp, Garko is a lock to make this team as a much needed RHed bat off the bench for PH duty late in games for Dellucci/Nixon when a LOOGY is brought in, and he likely gets 2/3's of the starts at 1B vs lefties (Martinez the other 1/3).

DGen, I agree with most of what you said.2. I like Inglett....but Shapiro made it pretty clear early in the offseason that the backup middle infielder needs to be a defensive-minded player, of which Inglett is not. I'm of the believe that Ingeltt will start in Buffalo, and that really as far as current roster options go it comes down to Hector Luna, Luis Rivas and Mike Rouse....with Rivas having the edge because of his defense and speed. But, that said, I believe it is more likely they made a trade near the end of camp for a utility guy or claim one off waivers.
