And I think your thesis Nasdag is that with nothing in either corner outfield we are just fatally flawed.

Add in a Closer and we would have to be Favorites. With Manny behind Pronk they can't pitch around him. And he never gets into this slump- which I believe is 100% due to him not being pitched to and him pressing and losing his timing.Thing is- Manny and a Closer costs about $30 million. I wonder if it would actually have been a good investment for Dolan- especially in light of the shit attendance and buzz the Tribe has gotten this year.

I think Cincy would be OK with 2 mid-to-upper level starters that we have in our system. If Dolan would take his salary we could get a good deal. Cincy needs to blow up their team- and we know this. Above all they need young pitching. No FA vets would ever go to Coors field Lite...But my problem with Griffey is that he is not a reliable player to make it thru the second half of the season. I love Griffey, and he would fit in with our "good guys". But he just gets injured.
