A friend of mine once recounted a story of sitting in the bleachers at Jacobs Field in the 90's, as Indians fans relentlessly heckled Mariners outfielder Jay Buhner. Buhner ignored them, keeping his attention on home plate, hunched over, with his hands on his knees... until finally acknowledging the hecklers - by first flexing his left buttock, and then his right.
Buhner made a number of fans in Cleveland that day.
Huh, no kidding. That's good to know, honestly.
Didn't think I'd learn anything from my horribly failed attempt at irony.
Don't forget Joe Smith. He and Pestano may have been Cleveland's best two relievers last year. Really, there are fewer question marks there than with the rotation and lineup. Anyhow, most any major league bullpen could be considered shaky, by virtue of being full of nothing but relievers.
"...there *is* going to be some challenges..."?
Tsk, tsk, Goldstein, real shoddy work. Are we really supposed to be satisfied with all this fantastic content, when your writing is so unforgivably subpar?
From what I've read about the two, sounds like Lindor might have a marginally higher ceiling, based on the tools. Of course, Profar already has the performance to back it up, and his legendary makeup probably trumps Lindor's merely off-the-charts makeup.
Between those two and Machado, it seems that, in three years or so, we could see the most exciting trio of young shortstops since the Jeter/Garciaparra/Tejada heyday.
Much as I follow the Indians, I never hear about his "makeup concerns", which leads me to believe that his past indiscretion is... well, a simple indiscretion, and in the past. Probably not much to worry about there.
Unless you just really like using that nickname, which needs work, by the way. Far too easy.
