RotoTimes:
The Indians re-signed Casey Blake (3B) Cle to a two-year contract on Friday with an option for 2007, according to the AP. He hit .271 with career highs of 28 homers and 88 RBI in 152 games as a third baseman last season and will move to the outfield in 2005 to make room for Aaron Boone.

With Boone playing 3B and the Tribe scrapping the idea of moving Blake to 2B (which would have been a HUGE benefit for me in my fantasy league), he becomes another ho-hum OF, as I don't think he will come close to repeating In my league, he loses his 3B eligibility quickly if he doesn't play at least a few games at 3B.

What also sucks is that, with the re-signing of Juan-Gone (at least until he injures himself), that means that Sizemore (can you tell where I'm going with this?....I have Sizemore, too) goes to AAA.

Personally, I would have rather seen them move Blake to 2nd, keep Belliard as a backup (I REALLY don't see him repeating last year's numbers), and not sign Juan Gone (granted, from a $$ standpoint, the signing doesn't hurt the Tribe....I just don't see him staying healthy).

all the talk at the boone signing was for him to be the second baseman iwas really liking that idea,, talk also was for them to move belliard out, great move IMO( strike while the iron is hot)could have gotten a decent OF out of it looks like that aint gonna happen now! :-t
