Indians 2010... Bye-Bye Jhonny?
As we near the conclusion of a rough '09 season, there has been one thing that has definitely caught the attention of some loyal tribe fans: the rookies.
In the past two weeks, Matt Laporta and Andy Marte have been tearing it up, hitting .362 and .333, respectively. However, with the recent call-up of Michael Brantley, and with Choo and Sizemore locked down in RF and CF, respectively, for 2010, where doesLaporta go? Well, Laporta must go to first. Now, where does Marte go? Third. Then, where does Jhonny go? Somewhere else.
Jhonny is supposed to make 4.6 Million next year, Marte will make .46 Million. Marte has hinted he is ready to hit at the MLB level, and Shapiro and Wedge just need to see more consistency. If Marte shows him he is ready, then why wouldn't Jhonny be dealt? With a possible stellar lineup in 2011 like this, Jhonny doesn't have a place.
Projected 2011 Lineup:
C- Carlos Santana
1B- Matt Laporta
2B- Luis Valbuena
SS- Asdrubal Cabrera
3B- Andy Marte
LF- Michael Brantley
CF- Grady Sizemore
RF- Shin Soo Choo
DH- Travis Hafner
