Not such a good idea
Someone, and I am very remiss in not remembering who, conjectured that the Indians might make a hit with their fans if they signed three former Indian hero's to contracts next year. The three are Jim Thome, Manny Ramirez, and Omar Visquel. They also figured they could be signed for about two to three million apiece. They thought it might be doable.
I agree it might be doable, but I think most fans even though the idea is intriguing would not like to see it happen, and it would seem more like a traveling road show and would in fact distract from the business of molding a winning team consisting of the young kids they have assembled.
