Very mixed feelings. On the one hand, I'd be proud of another former Indian (and fan favorite, no less) to make such a big leap.

Of course, it's with the Red Sux. That part blows. The only thing worse would be him ending up in New York, and that's only slightly worse. Plus, you hate to have someone with such an intimate knowledge of your team ending up elsewhere, especially a big market team with an already skewed advantage. (I still think that gave Boston an edge over us the past few years when Francona and Farrell were with them not long after their Indians stints, including the '07 playoffs.)

I'd wish him well, I guess, but if he's going to get his big break somewhere else but Cleveland, I'd sure prefer it to be far away from the East Coast.

As much as I think Sandy is ready and will someday be a fine manager, I'm not sure if other teams will see it that way.

He probably needs a year or two as bench coach before a marquee team like the Sux hires him as manager.

I don't think Sandy's the guy to navigate through the cornucopia of assholes on that team. They need a really hard-line skipper and I can't see Sandy being that.

Yah, but I didn't want to be the one to say it.
