Boy is having a blistering Spring

.500!! You kidding me

I always said he could win a batting title one year. I don't think it's far away

From Fangraphs+, the paid content part of Fangraphs, on Brantley:

Looking forward, there is nothing in the batted ball profile that scares you away. In fact, for three straight years, his batting average on balls in play has sat below his expected number, suggesting there may be room for improvement in the overall line.

If Vegas is offering an O/U on "Michael Brantley Career Batting Titles", and the # is .5 or higher, I'm betting my house on the under. But yeah, he's hitting .500 in spring training.

They should park him in the 5 hole and leave him there. Watch him hit with Kip and Carlos on base and Yan behind him.

I'm excited by our offense. Then again, I'm always excited about everything Indians right about now. My head is about to assplode I'm so amp'ed.

Would be nice if Bourne would get healthy.

Any guesses on if Santana sticks at 3rd? With Chiz as the backup, not sure it matters in the field.
