Backhanded Compliment Of The Day

"The best in the game when it comes to a routine play. When it comes to a baseball he can get to the guy's going to be out."

~ Cleveland Indians manager Eric Wedge on Jhonny Peralta's defense at Shortstop


What lofty praise... Is that why you were thinking of switching him to 3B?

Speaking of Indians third basemen, what the fack ever happened to Andy Marte -- he of #9 prospect in all of baseball fame? Well, Marte has hit .211 in 513 Major League at-bats (56 OPS+), and was recently DFAed by the Indians. Nobody picked him up and he accepted an assignment to Cleveland's Triple AAA affiliate, the Columbus Clippers. Well, at least he has made Coco Crisp appear to be productive.
