THE FRENCH FRYER with Steve French

GOODBYE SHAPIRO
French Fryer

     Indians' President Mark Shapiro is leaving to take a similar job with the Toronto Blue Jays.  That job doesn't involve acquiring/drafting players so it should be OK.  The media in NE Ohio is so far up Shapiro's a** that they'll tell you what a great he did.  They're wrong.  His drafting record as General Manager is an absolute disaster, over 15 seasons and 21 first round picks only two reached the majors.  It's why the AA and AAA levels of the Tribe's farm system are barren today.  Shapiro lived off one trade: Bartolo Colon to Montreal for Cliff Lee, Brandon Phillips and Grady Sizemore.  Even in that one he later dealt Phillips to the Reds for nothing.  The stadium looks nice, the team he leaves behind? Not so good.
