If your option was picked up, please step forward. Not so fast, Boonie

The first meaningful action of the 2006-07 Indians off season (it promises to be better than the 2006 Indians actual season) happened today as the team picked up the options on Jake Westbrook ($6.1 million) and Casey Blake ($3.75 million). Aaron Boone, meanwhile, will become a free agent. The Indians declined to pick up his option.
This is a good start to the off season: Westbrook at $6 million is great value, as is Blake at $3.75 million. Boone not on the team official opens the way for Andy Marte (most likely), an obvious improvement. All the moves were expected.
