Face it folks, our GM is an idiot who is further sinking this team into an abyss that it will take YEARS to climb out of.
So let me get this straight:
We taded our #10 prospect (BA ratings) for a guy who was 0-8 with a 6.67 ERA last year? Really.
And why did we do this? Who knows? Conventional wisdom is that we might be without the former Fausto Carmona this coming season and Josh Tomlin is questionable.
But who freakin' cares? We had depth at AAA (Gomez, McAllister, Huff and even Scott Barnes). It isn't like we were going to be without 5 starters come April. And, even if we were, so what? You can find AAAA guys all over the place if you just need a body to eat innings.
You want to know the REAL reason why this trade was made? Ever since the Indians traded two top 50 in baseball prospects (Pomeranz and White) to get Ubaldo Jimenez, EVERY move the Indians made has been to justify that trade.
Look, Zach Putnam, Cory Burns, Josh Judy and Chris Jones, IF they even make it big in the majors, will do so after Choo, Sizemore, Cabrera, Hafner and Jimenez, among others, are gone.
So Antonneti, because he was scared he would be short of starting pitching this year because of Carmona and Tomlin, mortgaged the future even more than it already is to get Slowey who, statistically, is a freaking joke. He overpaid for Cunningham and now he has overpaid for the pathetic Slowey. Idiot!
It is sooooo hard to be an Indians' fan anyway, but when an idiot like Antonnetti takes away even the future of the Cleveland Indians because he is too stupid to realize that there isn't a present for the Indians, that is when a change needs to be made. You can't have a GM who continues to make stupid move after stupid move to justify a desparate trade last July. THAT is how you become bad for 20 years.
Fire this idiot before he does any more damage. Fire him now!
