Recent years like….2001? Those are bad examples except CC.

“The Yankees have the best formula for a franchise as they hope to continue to go to the World Series every year”

Just as timely.

And why wouldn’t they include Cliff Lee?

CC was a bad example as well. CC never hit FA with the Indians, he was traded to the Brewers then hit FA.

I hope Chris Perez ends up in a trade to the Phillies to be the 8th inning guy next year since they were the 30 team this year in that..

Brown for Perez .

That’s actually a pretty good idea. Phillies aren’t known for being patient with young players, unless they produce right out of the gate.

So Dolan is going to REWARD Perez by dealing him away?

I wouldn’t expect the Indians brass to be pleased by the remarks Perez made. On the other hand, the truth hurts. Everything he said was true.

The Indians will trade him and get a player just like all the other players they already have-the pitcher will throw a sinker, the outfielder will bat left handed and have near zero power, the infielder can play his position and not hit or he can play any infield position and not hit.

They have no fans any more and it’s obvious they simply don’t care to build any kind of competitive team any time soon. The same people are in charge and they will just keep doing the same thing over and over and over again. The owners will just cash the revenue sharing checks without a care in the world.

The Indians used to be my AL team-but I can no longer stand to watch them. There isn’t much to see.

Hope that’s Charlie’s way of saying they’re going to bring Lehigh Valley IronPigs Manager Ryne Sandberg up to the Phillies’ coaching staff next season. If they don’t, some other team is likely to get a very, very good manager!

Everything I’ve heard about Ryne makes me think he will be a good manager at the big-league level.

Nothing I’ve heard about Ryne makes me think he’s any more likely to be a “very, very good manager” at the MLB level than any other MiLB manager.

Which also begs the question: What makes an MLB manager very, very good?

Charlie’s signed through next year and all indications from the organization are that he will return to finish that contract. I’d like to see Ryne brought up to be the bench coach next year and then move him into the manager role for 2014.
