Indian Bloodlines in 2008 Playoffs

My bitterness towards the Indians' 81 and 81 performance this year, coupled with the collapse in last years' playoffs chronicled yesterday, has lead me to compile a list of Ex-Indians in the 2008 Playoffs.

Below is a list of Ex-Indian Big Leaguers, playing for 2008 playoff teams, according to the active rosters on

Cubs: Bob Howry

Dodgers: Casey Blake, Jeff Kent, Manny Ramirez

Brewers: C.C. Sabathia, Guillermo Mota

Boston: Paul Byrd, Sean Casey, Alex Cora, Coco Crisp

White Sox: Jim Thome

The Rays, Angels, and Phillies do not have any ex-tribesman on their active roster from what I can tell.

Shaversports will be paying special attention to Casey Blake, CC, and Paul Byrd in posts to follow as the playoffs unfold, comparing their performance in this postseason, with the number that they put up in 2007 while they were playing for Cleveland. On thing is for sure, Paul Byrd at least won't get named in any congressional investigations on the day of a pivotal game like he did last year.
