Here’s to a great week!
I think we could see another catcher in Cleveland before too long. From Paul Hoynes:
If Perez slumps offensively or gets hurt – catching is a dangerous position – are the Indians ready to put the pitching staff in Haase’s hands? People inside the organization believe in Haase. Some baseball people on the outside say he just may win the job with his bat if Perez can’t improve on his .168 average from last season. Others question the talent of Tribe’s catching tandem as a whole and say an upgrade is needed.
Antonetti indicated that the Indians could add depth to the catcher’s position later in the offseason.

What do you do when President George H. W. Bush keeps calling you at home for fishing tips, to fix his yips or find out what movies you and your wife just saw?
