Indians will have their hands full

Okay so maybe letting Crisp go was for the better. I don't think he was happy here and probably still has the playoff shaft hangover but I think that we are definetly losing some talent in hitting and speed which i think is valuable to a team. Grady does deserve to be the lead off hitter and center fielder and I perceived that Crisp was kind of wanting that role all last year so. Getting back to the Subject, i feel that left field will need to be filled by someone that will keep the tribe in check and hopefully for the length of the season. I also believe that the competition will be much harder in the AL with Thome going to Chicago and Thomas going to Oakland. Do we have the firepower to match these teams? and Will the pitching hold up for the length of the season. Millwood leaving I think hurt a little but Byrd is a respectable replacement. Well enough of me, anyone else got any insight about this subject? By the way, I am swerbs second cousin - PEACE

CIBBFAN, welcome to your second cousin's site. :D

Second, I believe that even without Crisp, the Indians lineup will be better than the White Sox and A's lineup.

As for the Indians pitching staff vs. the White Sox/A's....that is the one to worry about or question.
