A Night To Wonder What Might Have Been

Watching the Indians tonight and seeing Grady Sizemore, Shin-Soo Choo and Travis Hafner all in the starting lineup makes one wonder what might have been this season if all three had remained healthy throughout the duration of 2011.

The mind boggles at the sheer volume of games these three integral parts of the offense have missed. And while it is true that the Tribe has slipped so far behind the Tigers that all chances are basically gone, one wonders if an extra ten or more wins would have been had with the threesome of Choo, Sizemore and Hafner available for, say, 150 games apiece. Ten more wins and The Good Guys would still be very much alive.

Ah well, wait until next year…assuming, that is, that all three are still on the roster come next April. If they are, then good health to them.

We would need that from all three.
