Matt LaPorta recalled from AAA Columbus. RHP Frank Herrmann optioned to Clippers to allow room for LaPorta (19HR, 62RBI, .822OPS at AAA)

Paul Dolan Speaks - Part Deux

568

Some choice nuggets: "As I sit here today, I have no intent to make any changes. I have to understand what's happened. I'm not going to have that understanding today. Hopefully, sometime in this off-season, we'll be able to assess and move from there.' "We had a team threatening to make the playoffs that has collapsed. We have to understand what happened, and I'm not going to make judgments on that right now. It's going to take more time to assess what we have, what we need, and what we're capable of doing.'' "Over the last five seasons includes teams that have had some success, including the best team in baseball,'' Dolan said. "The fact that we haven't won consistently is frustrating to all of us. But we have been, on balance, a team that has accomplished some things, in contrast to some teams that have done nothing." I think that "a team that has accomplished some things" should be their marketing slogan next year.

WKNR- Keith Law interview

9

I mentioned a couple of day's ago in a game thread that there was an interview that Kenny Roda had with ESPN.com senior baseball writer Keith Law. I believe this was a very good interview and these guy's made some really good points. They basically talk about what we've been talking about with the organization missing on the trades and finding a right handed bat. Keith Law also mentions the change of philosophy in drafting that the Indians have made(or are making). But for those that would be interested in hearing it, here you go.
