Popped up in today's player news. I agree with you. There are options, but none all that good for the Indians.
Be excellent to each other.

And from yesterday ...

ESPN wrote:The Indians plan on giving LaPorta, who had sat the previous four games before returning to the lineup on Tuesday, additional playing time in the coming weeks, the team's official site reports.
Spin: Both David Dellucci and Ben Francisco are struggling and the Indians want to give LaPorta some additional looks. "He's a guy that, as you watch the next week or two, you're going to see play more and more," general manager Mark Shapiro said. "He wouldn't be up here if we didn't expect to play him more and more and help us score runs more consistently."
Be excellent to each other.

He was starting for me because Daniel Murphy was facing a lefty, and Konerko and Byrnsie weren't playing. I was also lucky enough to start Zobrist as well because of this. :-)
