After seeing everything so far, is it me or will this year be an absolute cakewalk. the Indians lost Gonzo, Cordova, probably will lose Lofton, and signed Brady Anderson, which makes no sense. Russell "I strike out more times than I can hit" will probably get playing time. Now, us on the other hand, are getting Barcelo, Parque, Simas, Thomas, etc. back. This will be a great year :)

We do improve just by these Indian moves. And it's quite possible CC Sabathia will resemble Carlos Castillo next year.

The division might be a cake walk if clayton is gone, but I don't think we'll see more then the first round of the playoffs as usual.

You gotta have a labor agreement before you have a season,don't look too far forward.


But then again what the hell do I know?

According to this article it will be anything but a cakewalk:

Granted, the Cubune's bias is showing, but according to management they won't be going after free agents. Valentin will be playing out of position again w/ Clayton at SS (and what ever happened to Joe Crede?). Frank has gained weight (Love the quote, "A fatter Frank is a more productive Frank."). Starting pitching is suspect.

The division may be our for the taking, but that's as far as they'll get. Again.

Ahhh, positive Sox fans...If everybody comes back healthy, than it should be a cakewalk.
