Tribe interested in Rafael Furcal?

Chris KreitzerSenior Analyst IDecember 8, 2008

As astutely speculated over at the DiaTribe Sunday, SI.com is reporting that the Indians have an interest in LA Dodger shortstop Rafael Furcal. This is just the kind of signing the Tribe has lacked and would get the fan base charged up. If they have to go with less of a closer, fine. A journeyman starter? Good by me. This team is in need of a jolt and adding Furcal, although injury prone, would be a giant step in the right direction. With the way the hot stove has burned cool for the past three years, Tribe fans would surely welcome the front office attempting to make a splash for once. Don't bet on this happening, but we can dream.
