Luis Gonzalez?

Unread postby consigliere » Sat Nov 04, 2006 6:26 pm

Not sure I am happy to hear about this....



Cleveland general manager Mark Shapiro had a lunch meeting with Luis Gonzalez and Clifton here Friday, the Indians joining a list of nine teams that have inquired about Gonzalez.

“It was nice to have a team that values his veteran status,” Clifton said. “They are looking to add a veteran presence to their young players.”

Baltimore and Cincinnati have joined San Francisco and Texas as teams known to have inquired about Gonzalez, and St. Louis also is believed to be interested although no formal contact has been made.

St. Louis tried to trade for Gonzalez each of the last two seasons.

Also, saw Gammons mentioning Speier as a possibility for the Indians. Now, that is much better....Speier seems like a better fit, and fills a need.

Id love to see Speier come back here. Hes nasty. Has been consistently good when healthy since leaving here. And could be a great 8th inning or 9th inning sleeper guy who won't break the bank.
