Great moments in Indians' broadcasting
"Grady Sizemore back in the leadoff spot and that's where he'll stay. That's where he best helps this ballclub." -- Indians broadcaster/Eric Wedge Kool-Aid drinker Tom Hamilton.

Is there anyone other than Eric Wedge (or an Indians' broadcaster) who believes Sizemore best helps the Indians in the leadoff spot?

Hamilton then talks about what a great trade it was between the Indians and Mariners that brought the Tribe Luis Valbuena and lost them Franklin Gutierrez. First of all, Hamilton never mentioned the name "Joe Smith." Second, Gutierrez is starting while Valbuena's a part time player hitting .210.

Also, the Indians wouldn't have needed Asdrubal Cabrera (a trade Hamilton also was raving about) or Valbena if they'd just held on to Brandon Phillips.

I love Hamilton too much to be mad at him. Best play by play guy in the business. I really miss hearing him call Indians games.
