"We found traces of a certain toxic adhesive commonly found in very low priced envelopes."

As reported on the site, the Indians handed out their organizational invites to big-league camp -- OFs Matt LaPorta and Michael Brantley, LHP Dave Huff, RHP Ryan Edell, and INFs Wes Hodges, Beau Mills, Jordan Brown, Stephen Head. 1B Michael Aubrey was announced as an invitee earlier this week.


Personally, I'm eager to get my first look at LaPorta and Brantley in action. Huff will be competing for the fifth spot in the rotation (Aaron Laffey is my personal pick to click out of camp, though I'd expect Huff to make an impact at some point this year). Also curious to see Hodges at third.


Pick to click?
Who are you – Hawk Harrelson?

AC, I think it’ll be Huff that dazzles coming out of camp.

If Brantley and/or LaPorta truly dazzle in the spring, is there any chance Dellucci gets waived? It is the last year of this albatross.

Who are “Indians fans” gonna hate on if Dellucci leaves? I’m sure he signed (a) just to be a platoon player and (b) purposely blew out his hammy.


I’m surprised to see Edell invited to camp, and not Herrmann and Dixon. Has Edell passed tem in the eyes of the organization? I figured with the lack of right-handed arms in Columbus (minus Saarloos and Ohka), that Herrmann would be invited.

AC — Ok, if Laffey’s the #5 starter, who do you think is the *fourth* starter? (I presume you’ve got Lee, Carmona, Pavano slotted as 1-3.) Anthony Reyes? Scott Lewis? Jeremy Sowers?
