The Cleveland Indians didn't do much to improve the team before the trade deadline, what they did do, they did right. Brent Lillibridge is quickly becoming one of the Cleveland Indians rising stars. In the win against the Angels Brent Lillibridge 2 for 4 and was responsible for 3 of the Indians 6 runs. This guy can give the Cleveland Indians the lift they needed to get this team back to winning baseball games. Lillibridge can play so many positions for the Indians he is like have a spar baseball team in your dug-out.
The Cleveland Indians got it right when they picked up Brent Lillibridge, now they have to find a way to lock this guy into Cleveland for the long-term. Lets hope the Indians front office finds a way to sign this guy for the long-term. He is an asset to manager Manny Acta and the Indians not only need to keep this guy, the team needs to find another guy like Brent Lillibridge and go out and sign him. The Indians beat the Angels in the first game of their west coast road trip. We can only hope the Indians can get back to winning on the road and this trip ends different from their last road trip.
I have a feeling with Brent Lillibridge in the line-up it will be a better trip.....
