Hafner/Sizemore, the Tribe's Old Fogies

 

Since I’ve been AWOL for the past two months, not sure if this has been addressed yet, but with the recent trade deadline deals, this roster has very little seniority left.

 

Firstly, although a lot of players have left via trade this season, we will have a hard time reaching the record number of Indian debuts, which was 31 players in 2002 (not counting the 35 used in the debut year of 1901). Heck, we’ll have a hard time matching the 27 Indian debuts from last year, as we are only at 16 debuts this year, and no more trades look to be on the horizon come the Aug 31 deadline.

 

Anyways, back to the original topic, seniority. With the deals, do you realize that with Westbrook and Peralta gone, this slides Any Marte (!!!!) to number 6 and Trevor Crowe(!@#$) to number 11 in seniority with the Tribe? Egads, the horrors.

 

Here are the Top 15 as of yesterday:

 

Hafner 3/31/03

Sizemore 7/21/04

Carmona 4/15/06

R Perez 4/20/06

Choo 7/28/06 (batted eighth)

Marte 7/28/06 (batted ninth)

J Lewis 7/16/07

Laffey 8/4/07

A Cabrera 8/08/07

Joe Smith 4/8/09

Crowe 4/9/09

Sipp 4/22/09

LaPorta 5/3/09 (batted eighth)

Valbuena 5/3/09 (batted ninth)

Huff 5/17/09

So as you can see, only 6 players have been with the Tribe for five or more seasons, with the bulk of the roster debuting in 2009/2010.
