He is an asset to manager Manny Acta and the Indians not only need to keep this guy, the team needs to find another guy like Brent Lillibridge and go out and sign him. The Indians beat the Angels in the first game of their west coast road...

Kotchman, Duncan, Hannahan, Marson, Donald, and Lillibridge are not. Carrera might turn out to be. The departed Lopez, Damon, and several relief pitchers were not.
