[F]or an organization frequently forced to trade away their pricier stars, looking to the future and delaying Santana's service time clock is the right move.
One scout said of Indians third base prospect Lonnie Chisenhall, "He's going to be a star. He's a bad---.'' (He meant that in a good way.) The scout said he sees him as the next George Brett but didn't wish to put Brett's name between quotes in a comparison because Brett "did get 3,000 hits.''

With all the constant lineup changing, it's a fact that the Indians need to have a set order. I think I have the perfect one. 1. Asdrubal Cabrera SS 2. Luis Valebuena 2B 3. Grady Sizemore CF 4. Travis Hafner DH 5. Jhonny Peralta 3B 6. Shin Soo Choo RF 7. Michael Brantley LF 8. Jamey Carroll 1B 9. Carlos Santana C I know that Carroll isn't exactly a first basemen but he is way better than Marte. I also think that Shoppach is not consistent enough which is why I have Santana in there instead.
