Colon is a low level prospect in the Indians organization and he is showing it so far with his performance this fall.

I’m a big time tribe fan who is just getting a little sick of Cleveland Indians management sitting there with their thumbs up their butts! Lots of free agents out there and Cleveland needing some right handed power. So here come the winter meetings annnndddd…NOTHING!

Morales, a power-hitting first baseman, did not play in the big leagues last season after breaking his left in May 2010.
Even a Cleveland Indians fan doesn’t believe Asdrubal Cabrera is the best fielder in baseball:
