Default Melky Cabrera signs with Indians

Minor League Deal. Considering the Tribe's offensive woes this year, this move could end up helping them. Melky is better than Brandon Guyer and Rajai Davis

Also with Mike Napoli blowing out his ACL in Triple A it gives them some options.

The bottom line is that he could always hit. If he continues to hit then he adds to an already strong Indian team.

He can hit, he just canít hit hard. Or run the bases particularly well. Or defend particularly well. Which is why he still was unemployed well into April.

Glad he's back. MLB is more fun with Melky than without him.

I prefer instant death to torturous agony leading to death, personally. So to me the guillotine is the obviously preferable choice, but i guess that wasnt your point

So what is the over/under on what his batting average will be against the Sox?

Probably in the .350 range I would imagine.
