I think that the Tribe should go full tilt in obtaining Victor Martinez this off season.

Pure hitter. I would love it.

Pure hitter for a fact and that's just what the doctor ordered. I fully expect Santana to return to his former self at the plate (that 3rd base experiment with him did nothing but hurt him) and with that, we have a formidable middle of the batting order. With a healthy Kipnis, the awesome Gomes a for real Ramirez and a full time Bourne, up the middle is pushing toward elite too. I really like the staff, especially with another year under their belt. An established starter would be nice but I wouldn't break the bank for one and certainly wouldn't overpay for a career .500 guy because we're just not going to have the smothering offence like we had in '95-'97 to bail him out. I believe we'll seriously be able to contend in '15 and start to get some butts in seats again and get that home field advantage back.

Really nice acquisition getting Brandon Moss! For next to nothing too. The outfield is rock solid now. But I still covet Martinez for DH. With him, I see a line-up built for October.

Another low average, high strike out guy.

I think we have seen this before. See Reynolds, Swisher....

Sigh!
