    I’ll bet most of them end up in spring training with the Indians next year.

      And several of them will win sizeable parts on the team.

      I am not going to lie. I thought the same thing about Scott Richmond. But, that was after thinking, why would he leave an organization (Blue Jays) that had one of the worst pitching records in major league baseball. I guess Indians not having the same level of prospects differentiates the two situations.

    Board Member 1: I’ve never heard of half of these guys and the ones I do know are way past their prime.
    Charlie Donovan: Most of these guys never had a prime.

      He got 3m out of Boston last year w/an option as recall that Boston declined (wisely) and ended up with just a MiLB deal with ST invite to Cleveland.

      he looked like toaster streudal with Boston even.

    I want something decent this offseason. I filled in pretty well I thought with Astros this year.

    many of the players named here in this article will not be playing baseball in 2013. some of the names i recognize. they just could not cut the mustard in the major leagues. it would seem the best thing for them is to become coaches or some type of instructors in baseball or just flat out retire.

    Randy Wells is available ?!! Quick, Theo – he had a great season, like not even 4 years ago! All he needs is a change of scenery! Oh wait….

      Pretty low standard for a “great” season, haha.

    Looks like a fine expansion team roster right there.

  10. Yeeeeah…that’s not true. The phrase is “cut the mustard”, “cut the muster” is the military derivative of the original “cut the mustard” phrase. Also, in order for something to be didactic, something has to actually be taught.

  11. To be didactic, the origin of cut the mustard is as follows:

    Mustard seeds are extremely small an thus very difficult to cut. If a blade wasn’t of sufficient sharpness, it couldn’t ‘cut the mustard’ and as such, wasn’t a viable candidate.
