Shapiro: - Says no flexibility in bullpen, not many guys with options.
Stanford will now be the long man, and Perez will be given more opportunities later in games.
Won't predetermine how playing time will be distributed in LF and RF, but will play it out and look to put the best lineup out there.
No specific plan other than to use everyone regularly.
- Knows Francisco has done a good job against right-handers.

With the 1yr contracts, it seemed obvious to me that they didn't expect the vets to come in and be "the answer." Rather, they were placeholders in specific roles, to be replaced for ineffectiveness or injury by cherry-picked kids who appear ready for a callup at particular points in the season.Dolan may eat some contracts, if guys like Hernandez cannot be dealt.To me, they're acting like a playoff contender instead of completely relying on the small-market, we-live-and-die-with-the-kids approach.Now, losing the high draft pick- I see your point. And I don't have a problem with the opposition to the number of older position players. But the OFs shouldn't be lumped with the relief pitchers, imo- the Tribe seems to be putting the young relievers in positions where they are most likely to succeed, rather than throwing them all out there to sink or swim together on a playoff contender.
