The Indians will make a roster move on Tuesday, a move expected to be the final move of the season where they will purchase the contract of infielder Niuman Romero and call him up to Cleveland.

First off, congrats to Romero. He is realizing his dream to get a big league shot, so I wish him the best and have no ill will toward him.

That said, with this move, outfielder/first baseman Jordan Brown WILL NOT be called up. This is very disappointing, as he did everything humanly possible to get the much deserved callup for a cup of coffee this year. Heck, if anything, just to reward the guy for a fantastic year in Triple-A where he won the league batting title.

Brown deserves better than this if you ask me. I'll have a piece on him sometime this week sort of going more in depth on the situation as I had a chance to talk to him at length over the weekend as I was in Columbus.

By the way, Josh Barfield is toast.

Calling up Romero over him puts the final nail in his coffin with the Indians.
