Wrapping up the Indians' signing of C Matt Pagnozzi.

Via Jon Bois. Totally absurd and worth a look.

Mitch Talbot goes to Korea, and whatever happened to Kelly Shoppach?

11

The poll at the right asked, on August 9, whether you thought David Huff's ERA would be better or worse than 4.50 in his remaining starts. From that point, Huff made 8 more appearances—7 starts and being the last pitcher on the mound in a 14 inning loss to the White Sox, with no runs earned). He averaged under 5 IP/S (33 IP), with a 6.00 ERA (8.72 RA), 21 K's and 13 BB's. The 48 of you who voted "Above" can pat yourselves on the back.

Me.

Cyclical Smart Guys

Considering the world the new CBA will create.

Jensen Lewis signs with Arizona

17

Lewis, former Indian of some repute, has signed with the Diamondbacks. Charles Nagy is the pitching coach in Arizona, which probably contributed to the move. Arizona had worked Jensen out last season after the Indians released him, but passed. I outlined some of Jensen's career around that time. There was some confusion over whether Lewis had signed with Texas or Arizona, and Lewis himself took to Twitter to clarify. I guess he felt the need to cite a source (other than himself) and he linked to MLBTR. I laughed.

Indians Option Chart

3

Via IPI. Indians will have a lot of guys they can be flexible with this season. Duncan and Hannahan are the notable "no option" guys, in my view.

From @MLBastian. Interesting to see, especially if you've never been. Also, terrific music.

Jonathan Broxton to KCR

7

Broxton has struggled over the past two seasons, seeing K's decline and BB's increase. This has been attributed to injuries/overuse, and Broxton did not pitch after May 3 last season. The Royals bullpen is already filled with guys who throw hard, although there are control issues there as well. If Broxton is anything near his peak form, it could be a real strength for Kansas City. It will be interesting to see what happens with Joakim Soria, the Royals stalwart closer who has seen in a decline in performance but is still a valuable asset due to a team-friendly contract.

Transactions: Jerad Head to Tigers (Minor League Deal)

Jerad Head is not an Indian anymore.

Selig and the Draft

Considering why Selig wants the draft re-ordered.

Sizemore Deal Official

77

$5M base, up to $4M in incentives which, incidentally, would take him to what his declined 2012 option was worth.

Round The Bases Slowly

The sorts of athletes I like (basically: jerks), and the hope the Indians might get more.

There He Goes

Grady Sizemore's option has been declined and I'm forced to confront what wasn't, both in my personal life and with the Indians.

Derek Lowe to the Indians

Multiple sources confirming this. More detail as it comes.

Having to re-learn Adobe Illustrator for work, so I spent the afternoon refamiliarizing myself by doing a lousy knock-off of a great Albert Belle photo (http://images.wikia.com/baseball/images/3/30/Albert_Belle.jpg). Figured, why not let this into the world, where it can do so much good?

Indians in thick of playoff chase & now 45 games in 44-day span coming up. "You know what?" said Kipnis. "That's what we signed up for."

Bastian on Twitter. Indians—Twins has been postponed and will be one of those 45 games in the 44-day span. The game will likely be made up when the Twins return to Cleveland 9/23-9/25.
