The Indians are shopping Casey Blake, the most bearded member of the Time's Arrow All-Stars. For my own sense of self-worth, I hope be brings actual value as opposed to a phantom PTBNL, but I realize that this is just wishcasting. The article says that his ability to play third, first, and both corners in the outfield could be valuable on a contender, but given that those skills have never been truly valuable on the Indians, I'm not sure that's as much analysis as it is politeness. Still, he does have a .354 OBP this year and is posting one of his better overall seasons.
As for what the Indians will do for a third baseman, it seems that they have no choice other than to plug in Andy Marte and give him his last best chance at sticking in the majors. As Neyer noted in his SABR post yesterday (Insider only), Mark Shapiro regrets not having given Brandon Phillips enough time to develop when he was with the Indians. I would assume that he's not willing to make the same mistake with Marte. Given how out of it the Tribe is right, now what's the harm in the Indians giving him the final 72 games of the season to sink or swim?
