Most of the Tribes 40-man position players fall in this peak 25-29 range except Hannahands (31) and Sloth (32). Several are 24 (Chiz is 23).

Except for Lowe...all the pitchers fall into this range as well. (Fausto/Roberto not included). ALL the pitchers.

The Tribe is 'Logan's Run' manifest.

It seems to me that if we can have laws in America demanding that people wear seat belts for their own safety, we should also have laws that prevent Eric Wedge from moving Figgins into the leadoff spot. The last two years Figgins is hitting .239/.309/.285 … and those numbers are getting progressively worse, because that’s how age works. Last year he OB’d .241 in more than 300 plate appearances. Fans should be allowed to invoke some law that prevents their managers from doing something this insane.
