Lots of Hot Stove info:
Paul Hoynes is reporting that the Indians are unlikely to bid on Daisuke Matsuzaka; the blind bids are expected to be between $20-30M, and that's not counting Matsuzaka's contract.
As for Iwamura, the Indians are looking at him more as an outfielder, not a second baseman:
They also may bid on pitchers Masumi Kuwata and Hiroki Kuroda.
Also from Hoynes:
-Craig Counsell is being looked at as either a second baseman or a super sub. To me, he'd be ideal as a reserve, in that he gives the Indians a guy who can actually play shortstop.
-Joe Inglett is playing shortstop in the Arizona Fall League in order to show the Indians whether they need a defensive utility infielder.
-Kevin Kouzmanoff has looked good at first base, and may challenge Ryan Garko for the spot in Spring Training if both are still with the organization.
-The Indians are looking to sign a "veteran" left-hander to pair with one of their younger southpaws (Perez, Sipp, Lara) in the bullpen.
