    With Nick Swisher going to the White Sox for some prospects, I wonder why the Tribe didn't make a serious run at him. He's a switch hitter who is a Buckeye and would add some power to the corner outfield position. Seems like he would've been a perfect fit.

    Because the White Sox gave up their top 2 pitching prospects for a lifetime .250 hitter that can hit 25 dongs. I like Swisher, but I'd make that trade every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

    I don't know while the White Sox gave up their top AA and top A pitching prospects along with a very good AAA bat I would have liked Swisher in Cleveland. I mean how long can we wait and you never know when a minor-league pitcher's arm might blow out on him and a phenom hitter in the minor league's does nothing when he reaches the majors. Shapiro needs to make a move for a corner outfielder. I mean how long can we wait for our younger players to come up and win it for us.

    "The End Of An Era" is upon us.

    From what I understand, it will be announced tomorrow that "Jacob's Field" no longer will be. Progressive Insurance has evidently bought the naming rights to the Park and it will now be known as "Progressive Field." This sucks. I mean, really, to a true Tribe fan will the place ever be anything but "The Jake?" On top of that, why not "Progressive Park" which is catchier than "Progressive Field."

    Yikes.

    I'm sure the fans will still refer to it as "The Jake".

    Yep, fans will always call it the Jake.

    Now if Progressive gives us a ton of money and because of that we sign CC for 5-6 years then I might have to reconsider :biggrin:
