Indians - Optioned Gerut

Cleveland Indians - Activated OF Jody Gerut from the 15-day DL and optioned him to Buffalo.

This isn’t too bad - the Indians don’t believe that Gerut is ready to play physically and they were out of time for a rehab assignment.

What is bad is the Indians have all but said that they also need to keep Gerut down there until they find a space for him and that they feel Aaron Boone will live up to his track record.  Gerut’s not as good as he played in 2003, but Aaron Boone’s season is at the disaster point at which you want to think about simply releasing him outright and moving Blake back to 3rd.  I felt the Aaron Boone signing was a silly waste of money last season and now that they’re getting what amounts to the worst-case scenario, it’s certainly not any better.

I wonder if Shaprio has taked to Boonegasm Jim in DC - I bet they could still extract something of value.

Maybe an Indians fan should challenge Boone to a game of pickup basketball.
