Wow. That post brought back some memories.Yeah, Matt Williams had the divorce that rocked his world. The trade allowed him to be in the same state as his kids. Nobody can fault Williams for that. It did ruin the best defensive infield I've ever seen with Williams, Omar, both Alomars, and Big Jim Thome. Add Kenny up the middle and the Tribe boasted the best defense and best offense in MLB... they just didn't have starting pitching.
I always enjoyed the end of that run where the best offensive players on a bunch of other teams were former Tribe farmhands. Ritchie Sexton was the best Brewer, Giles was the best Padre, Sean Casey was the best Red... our utility guys could make up an All Star game.
