It is kind of like saying we have no idea what to expect, so let's bring in everyone we can and hope for the best.

And yeah, maybe they overpaid, but who gives a shit? It's not my money. Per Forbes, the Indians were the most profitable team in baseball in 2005, and made even more money last year.

BURKS: That it's nothing personal when you don't re-sign a player. I couldn't understand that when I first got involved in baseball. Why are they talking about trading me? Why are they talking about releasing this guy? But it's a business--it's all about the bottom line. We gave you this much on the budget, we have to get the right personnel. We definitely would love to have gotten a righthanded bat to complement Travis Hafner and Grady Sizemore. And the market wasn't as plentiful as it has been in the past.

Betancourt is usually pretty good when he doesn't need to pitch 13 straight days out of the pen. If you look at the stretches he's struggled, it is usually after a lot of use. So, in the second half, when all 12 bad relievers the Indians acquired in the off season are either hurt or ineffective, that's when you'd need to keep an eye on him.
