Hopefully, I'll finish this one. Came close twice before (Giants/Angels) but did not finish them.

INDIANS GM VOWS TO MAKE TRIBE COMPETITORS IN THE TOUGH AL EAST

Cleveland Indians General manager Phil Seghi is vowing necessary changes to make the Indians a contender in the AL East.

"It can no longer be business as usual here in Cleveland. This town wants a winner on the diamond and we need to do everything in our power to give them a winner as soon as possible," said Seghi.

Seghi didn't candy-coat what he thought needed to be done.

"You're gonna see a few moves between now and the start of the season," Seghi quipped.

"The first thing we've got to do is improve the bullpen with pitchers that are already proven at the Major League level. We have great starting pitching; one of the best staffs in the American League if you ask me. But, getting from our starters to reliever Jim Kern has been a big problem. We've got to fill in that cavernous gap. We do that and it will help us a great deal in our efforts to become one of the big boys in the AL East."

Seghi said he was willing to face the wrath of the fans by trading some key players on the team right now to build a long-term winner.

"It's not a popular thing to say or do," Seghi said. "But I am willing to move popular, solid players to help build the team to where it needs to be."

When asked if every player on the roster is potential trade bait to upgrade the team, Seghi did not mince words.

"Yes, we'll listen to any and all offers for every player on our roster. If we think moving some of them will get us players that in turn can vastly improve the team then we will strongly consider our options here. We need to win, win now and start putting a lot more asses in those seats," Seghi said. "5,000 people does not look good in an 80,000 seat stadium."

When asked about about the likes of pitchers Dennis Eckersley, Wayne Garland, Jim Bibby, Jim Kern, recently acquired first baseman Andre Thronton, second baseman Duane Kuiper and third baseman Buddy Bell, Seghi reiterated that improving the team will take some major moves and that every player currently on the roster can be traded if the right situation emerges.

We'll see what plays out over the next couple of months. Spring training is almost upon us. Nobody expects this Indians' squad to be serious contenders for much of anything, let alone the AL East title.

But Seghi knows that to comepete with the Big 3 of the AL East (New York, Baltimore and Boston) drastic measures will have to be taken to fulfill the vision of the general manager and owner Ted Bonda. It looks like Bonda is willing to open the wallet and roll the dice on Seghi and the moves he may make before the season starts.

Far from being another yawner of a season in Cleveland, when the team is usually out of the race by early summer, this year looks like it could be very interesting.

Whether it's interesting in the sense that the off-season moves made bring a positive turn around or turn the season into a massive train wreck has yet to be written.

Either way, we'll have to watch.

INDIANS MAKE FIRST MAJOR OFFSEASON MOVE

In a move that could wind up being very controversial, the Cleveland Indians traded 1B Andre Thornton and relief pitcher Tom Buskey to the San Diego Padres for 1B Mike Ivie and RP Dave Tomlin.

Tribe General Manager Phil Seghi is already backing up his promise to make major changes to make the Indians a winner and contender.

The Indians acquired Thornton just last month from the Montreal Expos for RP Jackie Brown. Thornton has shown he can hit for power and was expected to be the key to the middle of the line-up along with DH Rico Carty for the Tribe this season. Thornton struggled last season for the Cubs and Expos, hitting just under .200 and only knocking 11 homers and driving in 38 runs in 96 games.

But the need to bolster a below-par bullpen led to the trade. Dave Tomlin was a solid lefty out of the 'pen for the Padres, posting an ERA of 2.84 in '76. He is a definite upgrade for the Indians.

1B Mike Ivie is a solid, steady glove at first base and has occasional power and can hit for average. Last year, Ivie hit 7 homers and drove in 70 runs in 140 games for the Padres.

The Padres now have a potentially brutal middle of the line-up with OF Dave Winfield, OF George Hendrick, C Gene Tenace and 1B Andre Thornton. If that line-up produces as they're expected to, they could rival the Dodgers in offensive output.

Buskey is a decent reliever. But with the Indians needing to upgrade he was expendable.

"This is a good move for us," said Tribe GM Phil Seghi. "We get immediate, much needed bullpen help and Mike Ivie is a solid everyday player in the field and at the plate."

When asked about giving up a lot of potential power in Thornton, Seghi was blunt. "You have to give up something to get something. Moving Andre was a tough decision. We don't have a big power line-up and that's okay," Seghi said. "But we do have a team that can manufacture runs and I'm confident in our ability to do that. Add stellar pitching and we could possibly be in contention this year."

Seghi was then asked if any more moves were coming.

"Without a doubt," Seghi confidently replied. "We've got more work to do to get to where we want to be as a team. Expect more moves this offseason."

The re-building has begun in Cleveland. The only question is when it's done, will the foundation be built on rock or sand?

TRIBE DEALS SS LARVELL BLANKS TO A'S FOR RELIEF PITCHER DOUG BAIR

Indians' GM Phil Seghi has made yet another move, dealing Indians' starting shortstop Larvell Blanks to the A's for reliever Doug Bair.

The move seems to go against what Seghi said recently when he said he was going after established major league ballplayers.

Bair has appeared in only four Major League games in his career.

But Seghi had a ready response when questioned about it.

"We were impressed enough with what he did in the minors to take a chance on him," Seghi said. "We think Doug Bair will be a quality addition to our bulllpen. Wait and see."

Blanks is a very good hitting shortstop. But his fielding will give a manager more than a few gray hairs during a season. The A's make a major upgrade at short in the hitting department. But they are going to see their fair share of fielding miscues from Mr. Blanks.

Frank Duffy is now the number one shortstop for the Tribe. Duffy is the opposite of Blanks. A light hitter who is solid with the glove in the field.

"We're extremely confident in having Frank Duffy as our shortstop," Seghi said. "He has the potential to be one of the best in the league defensively."

Seghi closed with this.

"Overall, I like the moves we're making. We're working on another one right now and already have four teams interested in possibly doing a deal," Seghi proclaimed.

When pressed on details of this deal, Seghi played it close to the vest.

"The only thing I can tell you is, if there's a deal to be made in this case it will be a blockbuster," Seghi said.

The Indians gave up an excellent hitting shortstop in Larvell Blanks for an unproven pitcher at the major league level. Did the Indians short-change themselves here? We'll have to wait and see.

BLOCKBUSTER!!!
INDIANS TRADE SP ECKERSLEY, OF NORRIS AND C KENDALL TO WHITE SOX FOR SP KRAVEC, OF LEMON AND OF/C NORDHAGEN

The Indians pulled off their biggest move of the offseason, dealing starting pitcher Dennis Eckersley, rookie outfielder Jim Norris and veteran catcher Fred Kendall to the White Sox for starting pitcher Ken Kravec, outfielder Chet Lemon and outfielder/catcher Wayne Nordhagen.

Eckersley, expected to be one of the anchors of the Tribe's starting rotation for years to come, was 26-19 in his first two years in the majors, both with the Indians. Norris was expected to be the starting centerfielder for Indians this year after some stellar seasons in the minors but will now take that position with the White Sox. Kendall had just come over from the Padres after being there for eight seasons, the last four as the team's starting catcher.

But, with the Indians' signing of free agent catcher Larry Cox in December, the team felt they could move Kendall if the right deal came along.

Starting pitcher Ken Kravec was 1-5 with a 4.89 ERA for the White Sox last year, but was expected to vie for a spot in their rotatio. Kravec's career record up to now is a lackluster 1-6. Kravec had an up and down minor league career; but has good stuff and that had appeal for the Indians to acquire him. Lemon will immediately become the starting centerfielder for the Indians. Last year for Chicago, Lemon hit ,248 with 4 homers and 38 RBIs and stole 13 bases in 20 attempts. Lemon is expected to bat in the middle of Cleveland's line-up. Nordhagen, like Kravec, doesn't have much to show for his time in the majors. But, his minor league numbers are rock solid. Lemon is solid with the glove. Last season, Nordhagen batted .189 with no homers and five RBIs in a limited number of appearances for Chi-town.

Acquiring Nordhagen and Kravec in the deal has some scratching their heads since Indians' GM Phil Seghi has said he wants to turn Cleveland into a regular winner right away.

"This will be a good trade for us," said a confident Seghi. "We wanted Kravec and Nordhagen because they're young and both were good minor league players. Those two, along with young Chet Lemon, are guys we feel we can build around for the future."

However this, like the trade for reliever Doug Bair from the A's, flies in the face of Seghi's statement of trading for quality veteran relief players to try and kick-start an immediate winning cycle.

Also, why trade the already-established young starter Eckersley just two years into what looks to be a promising career?

"I've said it before: you have to give something to get something. We have a very good starting pitching up and down the rotation," Seghi quipped. "One of those starters could definitely be traded in a deal to upgrade our team. We had four teams who wanted Eckersley. Those teams were the Dodgers, Giants, Angels and White Sox. We looked at all the deals on the table and decided this was the best one for us. I think fans are gonna be quite surprised with the results."

We've heard about those other possible deals that never took place.

The Dodgers would have sent starting pitcher Rick Rhoden and a back-up position player to the Indians for Eckersley and a back-up position player: most likely being outfielder Paul Dade. Rhoden is the number four starter in the L.A. rotatation, but could easily be a number two starter in many rotations in the legaue. The fact that Rhoden is the number four mound man with the Dodgers shows just how deep their rotation is.

The Giants deal would have sent Eckersley, Jim Norris and Fred Kendall to 'Frisco for starting pitcher John Montefusco, outfielder Derrell Thomas and back-up catcher Marc Hill. Montefusco won 31 games over the last two years with ERAs of 2.88 and 2.84, respectively. Thomas is an excellent fielder with lots of range. He missed much of the '76 season with injuries. But, in '75, he hit .276 as the lead-off man and stole 28 bases. Hill hasn't shown much at the plate in limited playing time the first few years of his career. However, Hill is thought to be a good defensive catcher with above average arm strength.

The deal with the Angels would have shipped Eckersley, Norris and a back-up player to California for starting pitcher Paul Hartzell, shortstop Bobby Grich and outfielder Gil Flores. Hartzell was 7-4 with a 2.77 ERA for the Angels in his '76 rookie campaign. Veteran Grich just arrived from the Orioles and was coming off a '76 season which saw him hit .266 with 13 homers and 54 RBIs. Grich is a good glove man. Flores is starting his rookie season in Anaheim.

"I think we're gonna surprise some people because of the moves we've made," said a smiling Seghi.

It could certainly be surprising, Phil.

But will it be surprising in that the Indians start down the road to a number of winning regular seasons and possibly some playoff berths? Or will it be surprising when the team loses 100 games this year and draws 600,000 fans to Municipal Stadium?

We're about to find out.

How the games will be played

All CLE games will be played using the Strat-O-Matic Baseball board game using the 1977 season MLB player cards.

I will be using a mix of Advanced/Super Advanced gameplay.

All games will be played using the actual 1978 MLB schedule.
All non-CLE games will be played using a dice rolling system I created.

How non-CLE games will be determined

All non-CLE game results will be based on one roll of three six-sided die for each game during the '77 season. Standings will be based on these results plus the SOM results of the CLE games.

The better a team's record was in 1977, the more chances they have to win.

The roll for each game will be based on whomever the home team is. If the roll falls within the window of their winning numbers then the home team wins the game. If it falls outside of those numbers the road team wins the game.

Here are each team's chances to win based on their '77 Strat-O-Matic-based records:

92-100+ Wins: 10 winning rolls

Winning #'s:
4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, 17, 18

Teams:
LAD, NYY, BOS, BAL, KC, TEX, PHI, PIT
-------------------------------------------------

86-91 Wins: 9 winning rolls

Winning #'s:
3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 11, 13, 15, 17

Team:
CWS, CIN
-------------------------------------------------

78-85 Wins: 8 winning rolls

Winning #'s:
4, 7, 9, 10, 12, 13, 16, 18

Teams:
CHC, MN, STL, HOU
-------------------------------------------------

69-77 Wins: 7 winning rolls

Winning #'s:
5, 9, 11, 12, 14, 15, 18

Teams:
DET, OAK, *MTL, CAL, SD, SF, OAK
-------------------------------------------------

50-68 Wins: 6 winning rolls

Winning #'s:
4, 9, 10, 12, 15, 17

Teams:
SEA, TOR, MIL, NYM, ATL

-------------------------------------------------

(* MTL = Montreal Expos)

(The Inidans are not included in this list since I will be playing their games.)

Non-CLE games gameplay example: The Phillies are at the Cubs. The Cubs fall into the 80-85 actual win window for '77. The three die roll comes up 12. The Cubs win the game because it falls into the winning numbers for teams that won between 80-85 games that year. If the three die roll was 9 then the home team Cubs would lose because it falls outside their window of winning numbers.

Hope that explains it.

MORE TO COME...
