Asdrubal Cabrera and Chris Perez named to AL All-Star Team

This is the first All-Star appearance for both players.

Asdrubal Cabrera, Mr. Underrated.

"When people talk about awful trades, the conversation always turns to A.J. Pierzynski for Francisco Liriano/Joe Nathan, or Bartolo Colon for Grady Sizemore/Cliff Lee/Brandon Phillips. But Cabrera was acquired from the Mariners for the last 43 games of Eduardo Perez’s career. When the Mariners gave Cabrera up, they were 41-40 -- only two games out of first place, but hardly a juggernaut. Perez came over to DH, but the Mariners felt like he needed a platoon partner. So they did what most of us would have done, which was give up Shin-Soo Choo for Ben Broussard. Once Mariners fans take enough prescription drugs, they can convince themselves that the Indians really are the 2011 Mariners, and then they don’t mind so much"

It has been several weeks since I attempted to post something on this site but here it goes again. I, as you may know, am an avid, but young Indians fan. Like every young fan, I have made mistakes and upset people who don't need to be upset. I formally apologize to all those whom I may have flustered in my last 2 years of savage posting on this site. With my 16th birthday rapidly approaching, I have decided to turn over a new leaf and begin to accept what the intelligent minds of LGT have to offer and view it as strictly constructive criticism. With that being said, I have been following the Indians since the day pitchers and catchers reported. I have to say that I have been excited about what I have seen so far: Asdrubal Cabrera- .750 BA proves in my mind at least that last year wasn't just a fluke and he could be a thrill to have on this team as a cornerstone of a rebuilding process. As a team, the Indians have an ERA, correct me if I am wrong, of 1.33. This is a reason for excitement simply due to the fact that the Indians haven't been praised about the Pitching Staff in months past as well as the good pitching is coming in the warm Arizona desert in which the baseball has a tendency to fly. My final reason for excitement is based of the insight that Bruce Drennan provided today. He, like many other Cleveland fans is elated to see that the Indians have started well, one of the main things they could never accomplish under Wedge. He also believes that the lineup that the Indians are able to put out could prove to be one that could propel the Indians into contention as early as this year. As I stated previously, I am sorry for the childish way that I acted before but I would like to start over and provide the insight that I can and get the CONSTRUCTIVE criticism that every young fan needs.
