I don't like it. Gotta think Brantley or Stubbs will be dealt. Unless they are dealt for pitching, this deal stinks.

I love it. Neither Brantley nor Stubbs will be dealt.

Outfield will be Brantley, Stubbs, Bourn. three centerfielders. rangiest outfield in the majors. nothing drops.

Swisher moves to first. Reynolds DH's.

Giambi is released. We have ourselves an offense with lots of speed, and solid but not overwhelming power. We will score some runs.

Stubbs will not DH unless it's some sort of emergency situation.

Stubbs is an elite defender.   Swisher not so much.  If I was a pitcher, especially a fly ball pitcher,  I would salivate to have an outfield of Brantley, Bourn, and Stubbs.  Nothing drops.

This team has expectations now, a manager and front office it can't fire (because if it does, Francona walks), and super questionable pitching.

There's considerable downside to this situation. It could get ugly.

Re: Hate to be an I told you so. 


Really seems like this opens the door for the Indians to also sign Lohse. What do they have to lose at this point? Plenty of spare parts they can package together to retool the farm system, without losing any key contributors from the major league roster. Also won't be surprised to see Asdrubal moved in a deal for some young studs. 

The Bourn signing gives the team lots of flexibility. All 4 outfielders can be in the lineup at the same time, with one sliding to DH, and Swisher can slide to 1st when Reynolds DH's, Reynolds to 3rd when Santana DH's, etc. I think this is going to be a fun season and the Tigers better watch out.

On days when they want Carlos to rest his legs either he goes to first and Swisher to RF and Stubbs sits or Carlos DH's and Reynolds sits -- depending on who they think matches up better.
