9) DH  Matt LaPorta

I go:
Swisher
Cabrera
Kipnis
Santana
Reynolds
Brantley
LaPorta
Chisenhall
Stubbs

Your two best hitters are Swisher and Santana.  Kipnis and Asdrubal are close.  I like Brantley, and coudl flip flop him with Reynolds.

Need another starter. Ubaldo is suckitude and it wouldn't be wise to rely on Carrasco too heavily coming off injury.

NY Times sees it as yet another hole in the Yankees offense...Ibanez just signed somewhere, and Russell Martin is gone (haven't looked much...HTTR).

A guy from Ohio dies and goes to Hell. He had been a horrible man all his life. The devil puts him to work breaking up rocks with a sledgehammer. To make it even worse, he cranks up the temperature and humidity.

After a couple of days, the devil checks in on his victim to see if he is suffering adequately. The devil is aghast as the Ohioan is happily swinging his hammer and whistling a happy tune. The devil walks up to him and says "I don't understand this! I've turned the heat way up, it's humid and you're crushing rocks. Why are you so happy?"

The Ohioan, with a big smile, looks at the devil and replies, "This is great! It reminds me of August in Cleveland. Hot, humid and a good place to work. It reminds me of home. This is fantastic!" The devil, extremely perplexed, walks away to ponder the Ohioan's remarks.

He then decides to drop the temperature, send down a driving rain and torrential winds. Soon, Hell is a wet, muddy mess. Walking in mud up to his knees with dust blowing in his eyes, the Ohioan is happily slogging through the mud pushing a wheelbarrow full of crushed rocks.

Again, the devil asks how he can be so happy in such awful conditions. The Ohioan, with a big smile, looks at the devil and replies, "This is great! It's just like April in Cleveland. It reminds me of working out in the yard with spring planting. It reminds me of home. This is fantastic!"

Now the devil is completely baffled. He is more determined than ever to make the Ohioan suffer. He then makes the temperature plummet. Suddenly, Hell is blanketed in feet of snow and ice. Confident that this will finally make the Ohioan unhappy, he checks in on him again. He is again aghast at what he sees!

The Ohioan is dancing, singing, and twirling his sledgehammer as he cavorts in utter glee.

"How can you be so happy? Don't you know it's 40 below zero?" screams the devil. Jumping up and down the Ohioan throws a snowball at the devil and yells "Hell is frozen over!! The Browns won the Super Bowl!! The Browns won the Super Bowl!!"

Cleveland has signed Brett Myers. Nice signing. Decent inning eater who can move to the pen to make a rotation spot for someone else if necessary.

This move would probably push Bauer into starting the season in Triple-A, but that shouldn't be a huge issue.
