Dave Dellucci 3YR/$11.5MM

Given his performances ove the past two seasons, the contract OF Dave Dellucci signed with the Indians is not unreasonable.  DD's on-base ability seems real - .367 in 2005, .384 post-7/31/2006.

He also provides a platoon mate for last off-season's roto-commentariat fav, Jason Michaels.

Given the escalating contracts and DD's abilty to hit left-handed and get on-base, this contract should age well enough that it will not block any developing minor leaguers.  (Although OF Brad Snyder just saw his platoon opening into the majors slammed shut.)
