News and Notes, October 17

Current Tribe pitchers and former Tribe pitchers are both in the spotlight today.

  • Bruce Fields and Steve Smith are gone. Brad Mills might come aboard, which would give us 3 manager-quality guys in the dugout (Francona, Alomar).
  • Bastian takes a look at how terrible the 2012 rotation was. He says "potential free-agent starters include Anibal Sanchez, Brandon McCarthy, Kevin Correia, Jeremy Guthrie, Edwin Jackson, Hiroki Kuroda, Francisco Liriano and Shaun Marcum."
  • In case you missed Emily's fanshot, Vinnie Pestano was referenced on a popular TV show earlier this week.
  • LGFT Jake Westbrook threw a 50-pitch simulated game on Tuesday. He is back to full strength, and could pitch in the WS if needed. Still, Go Giants.
    Lance Berkman could also return.
  • Justin Verlander continued his playoff dominance last night against the Yankees. He was pulled for Phil Coke after 130+ pitches. Despite being bad against the Tribe this season, Coke was able to shut down the 2-1 win.
  • Following in the line of Robin Ventura and Mike Matheny, Jason Giambi will interview for Colorado's managerial opening. This craze is going a little too far, IMO.
  • I'll use the CBS headline for this one: Sanchez's success help Tigers in 2012, but could make him harder to keep for 2013 and beyond
  • Former Indian Luis Valbuena (notice I didn't say LGFT) is eligible for arbitration. Can you say non-tender?
  • And finally...
    Alomar will be on the staff, presumably, unless somebody offers him a managerial job very soon.
