I never really imagined Trot leaving…I always thought that Theo would get the STUPID deal done with “Just Dangling” and he would then sign Trot to be at least a utility player..
But, at least if he has to go somewhere, Cleveland isn’t a bad place to go…I like Cleveland, my Dad and friend Warren are both Indian fans….its a good team, young, a team that will benefit from his experience and leadership…
As someone whoÂ Gabe Kalper calls “…a loyal, deep, strong human being that I have a tremendous respect for,”Â you know Trot would have NEVER went to those stinkin Skankees….
A career .278 hitter and the owner of 133 homers, Trot will platoon with Casey Blake in right, and will be paid $3 million as part of his 1-year contract..
And it’s only a year–he could be back…
Good luck and godspeed Trot..you will be missed…
NOW canÂ we get the frickin deal with J. D. Drew done….PLEASE???Â
