A Boone for the Tribe

Posted at 11:30 AM on March 24, 2006 by Ben Tesch

The Cleveland Indians have sent top prospect Andy Marte down to AAA, as they now intend to start the season with "seasoned" veteran Aaron Boone at third.

Yes, this is the same Andy Marte who they got when they gave up Coco Crisp to the Red Sox, and who was hitting .359 this spring, including 6 doubles and 9 RBI.

This is also the same 30-something Aaron Boone with the two knee surgeries, can't hit lefty pitching, and whose first two months with Cleveland last year were "the lowest points of my career."

Why do I get the feeling Aaron has incriminating photos of someone in the front office?
