Bradley looks good without the 40 pounds he owned last year. Nice start with the bat. Cleveland fans will be happy.

In 2019, Jake Bauers, the batter with a great swing, had one of the biggest differences in bid projection I have seen in my 30-plus years in Rotisseriedom, from low single digits to mid-20s. I remember settling on something $4-7 as a guess, while the auction in my league topped high teens and reached mid-20s with two bidders disappointed at losing out on the guy the Indians got from Tampa Bay. My notes say that PK and Alex recommended $12 bids in 2019. 

Francona says that someday Bauers will hit, but I am grateful I am no longer waiting for him in Cleveland. Give me a powerful strikeout from Bradley instead of a weak wave from Bauers. But please don't quote me on that. I am weary of strikeouts too.

Welcome back to the big leagues, Bobby Bradley. This time you're here to stay.

The willingness of teams to live with DREADFUL players, when there are guys just-under-the-line of what you really want at a position available for free . . . still astounds.

Yeah, I mean, wouldn't there be plenty of Quad-A first basemen if Bradley failed?  Bauers has demonstrated he's not very good.

Speaking of out of options, I got squeezed at 1B at the auction and ended up with Bauers, so I drafted Bradley in reserves.  Not happy about it, but as problems go, I guess it could have been worse.

That Jake Bauers was out of options is Cleveland's explanation. Doubt that anyone wanted Bauers in trade (I wouldn't).  If they dumped Bauers (I would), and Bradley fails, then the musical chairs game would begin: Josh Naylor probably goes to first, Daniel Johnson comes up from the minors to play RF.

As things stand for the opener, Naylor is in right, Ben Gamel or Amed Rosario in center, and Bauers or Chang at first. April may be cruel to CLE.

Bradley has options left. Jake Bauers would have to be placed on waivers.

Why Bauers over Bradley? Anyone know the logic?

The Indians have said they're keeping either Bradley or Bauers up, not both. Bradley has a 1.239 OPS so far this spring. Bauers is at .678. I'm a Bradley guy, but I thought he was done for. He'll be in the next Cadillac update.

I mentioned earlier in an Aguilar post that Aguilar's success since he was released by Cleveland, after 58 at bats over 3 years, is part of the conversation this spring in Goodyear, where Bradley (looking trimmer, say the notes), is getting a chance to win the Cleveland job at first. Bradley's capabilities remind Cleveland of Aguilar, and they don't want to fail to give this guy a full shot at the majors, says Francona. 

Bradley, Bauers, Josh Naylor and Daniel Johnson all are competing at being the lefty either in RF or at 1st. Naylor is pretty much set as the starter in right, at least against RHPs, but first is open.
