Finally... The fans have been clamoring for it.
And now you get your wish!
The Cleveland Indians made a move and they brought in the highly coveted right handed hitter that everyone so desperately wanted for the Tribe's lineup.
Okay I can't do it. I'm sorry but this just isn't working. Maybe if Brent Lillibridge looked a little bigger than Pinoccio I could play along with this for more than a few paragraphs, trying to convince you that the Indians had actually done what you wanted them to in acquiring a right handed bat.
But I just can't do it. The Indians did indeed make a trade with Boston, acquiring Lillibridge by sending reliever Jose De La Torre to the Red Sox. Lillibridge started the year with Chicago and was sent to Boston in the Kevin Youkilis trade. He arrived in Chicago from Atlanta through the Javier Vazquez (or one of the Javier Vazquez) trade (s).
The Indians will make a corresponding roster move tomorrow and for now will transport Lonnie Chisenhall from the 15 day disabled list to the 60 day disabled list, removing him from the 40 man roster. It could mark the end for Aaron Cunningham, as Lillibridge has outifeld experience, although he is mainly an infielder. He has started or played at every single position on the diamond excluding catcher and pitcher off course, in his major league career. So he's the definition of utility player.
Can he be Jason Donald for the Indians? Defensively, sure. But Lillibridge brings a career .212 average to the table, with a .165 average between his stints with Boston and Chicago.
Two Sox, two Central teams, two trades for Lillibridge this season. He'll get his shot with the Tribe, but let's just be honest here. Does anyone think he's going to help this team in anyway? Maybe as a late inning defensive replacement. Maybe gives the Indians the chance to give Cabrera a breather every great while and still have someone who can play center on the roster without having Aaron Cunningham around.
But really, this is one of those moves that you know is not really all that beneficial in many, if any aspects.
The question now would be who he takes a roster spot away from. Cunningham is and has certainly been on the chopping block, but I supposed you have to name Jose Lopez and Shelley Duncan as candidates as well.
Regardless of all of it. We should convince the White Sox that they could make this kid's day and re-acquire Brent Lillibridge, for, let's say, Jake Peavy for what's left of Jason Knapp and compesation for all of Peavy's salary. Kenny Williams, you can be a hero!
For the record, my dad recorded the same type of video when the Indians traded Jody Gerut to Chicago. Only I was a bit older than this kid. No shame, no shame.
