Indians Can’t Be Serious Update…

According to the Akron Beacon Journal, the Indians after last night’s game released Tony Graffanino, sent down Trevor Crowe, placed Joe Smith on the DL and called up Matt LaPorta, Luis Valbuena and Josh Barfield.

I would like to think that Indians GM, Mark Shapiro read my blog and then changed his mind about Matt Laporta. In reality I am guessing that just some old fashioned common sense prevailed. Even though Eric Wedge said that ”LaPorta will complement David Dellucci,” I imagine common sense will prevail again and LaPorta will be the Indians full-time DH until Hafner comes back. When Hafner does come back, LaPorta should take over for Ben Francisco as the Indians everyday LF.

As for a fantasy perspective, if you are in a keeper or dynasty league then LaPorta is a must have. If you are in a regular league, LaPorta would be a nice pick up as well. I am going to guess he is somewhere in between Ryan Braun and Jay Bruce, which would be around .280/23/75.
