To be fair I believe the sox had a few of those guys before the indians had them, and a few of them such as herbert perry were never really big members of the team. A few of the guys are also just journeymen who were on dozens of teams between them.

Thome, Colon and Lofton were really the only three the sox seemed to really intend to rely on.

seeing how these acquisitions occurred over close to ten years and 2 (3?) GM's I would hardly consider this much of a trend. Now, if they all of these guys were still on team, then you'd have something

Pretty weird.

However, Assenmacher, Franco (played with Cle in the early 80s, but with Sox before late 1990s Indians) and Cordero were Indians fascination with ex Sox.

Too bad that only one of those players will be on the roster in 2006, probably the best of the bunch in Thome.

Too bad that of all the players the Sox have had in the past 3 years from that group, only one (Sandy Alomar) could not be described as one of the following: Cy Young award winner, future hall of famer, MVP candidate.


Yup, Kenny's a rube. He has a hardon for former Indians. You proved it.

Or maybe he likes acquiring good players and the Indians teams of the late 90's had some goddamned ****ing good ballplayers.

I don't think the Indians won the World Series with any of those players. Its because they never won it in the 90's. Its to bad for those Indians. I am sure we will be picked 2nd or 3rd in our own division again because the great Indians will win another WS Championship.

For such a newbie, that guy seems to have a keen insight...:rolleyes:

I got to say that the correlation between the Players signed and where they played before seems dubious at best. A minor observation if ever there was one.

Maybe it's not the Sox who are obsessed with that Tribe squad.

I hope nobody here is saying Cleveland wont be there in 06--they have 4 good pitchers they can throw at you---kinda sounds like another team

I think what we're all missing here is that the Indians from 1996-1999 were really god damn good and players that are really damn good are good for a while. I don't think KW is sitting in his office, contemplating how he can bring Omar Vizquel and Manny Ramirez in, but those Indians were just a really, really good team.

Yep. We had Bartolo who won the Cy Young this year, Lofton who was the best leadoff hitter around in his day, Roberto Alomar and now Thome who may both be future Hall of Famers, and we also tried to deal for Vizquel who has more Gold Gloves then he knows what to do with and is a great no. 2 hitter on top of that. We signed Sandy Alomar who was a terrific influence in the clubhouse, knows how to handle a staff, had some power, and will probably make a great coach or manager when his playing days are done. We were not exactly taking players off the scrap heap, unless you count the second acquistion of Robbie (the first was under the impression that he would return to his old self in the AL Central).
