  1. Indians accept. its funny the difference in scouts. My scout feels like I got the best player here in Paschini and my scout also really likes White. But we did give up a couple guys I liked in Lemons and Reed. Either way, this is a crapshoot anyway. Thanks Matt. Prospect swaps are always fun
  2. We accept this deal with the devil. We needed an excellent defensive SS who can get on base and Suzuki fits that role perfectly. He is no stud defensively, but he can get on the bag at a decent clip. We also think Betances could be a bounceback candidate but with the 100% retention, there is no real risk involved on my end. The prospects are good but blocked by better options and Torres was a fave of mine but oft-injured and can't play SS I begrudgingly thank Rocky for the deal
  3. The following trade has (finally) been agreed upon CLE sends RP James Serrano (AAA), RP Donald Austin (AAA), 3B Antonio Morales (AAA), SS Bill Weaver (A Lake County), RF Joe Gray Jr (A Lake County) & SP Tahnaj Thomas (A-) ATL sends RF Nick Williams & 1B Keon Barnum We have been working on this trade with Brenton for weeks now. We do give up some guys we really like, specifically Serrano and Austin but we get an OF who can hit LF and RF in Williams and a potential RBI guy in Barnum, two areas we needed to address. Brenton, even though sometimes trading with you is a nightmare, it always ends up as a pleasure. All the best mate
  4. Indians agree A forgotten part of our Stras deal. Heinz is a dummy for forgetting to include the cash, and I am a dummy because I didn't check. You're the best Heinz
  5. The Indians agree. This wasn’t really in our plans but an opportunity arose (we really wanted Winter but missed that bus) and I decided to jump on it. Stras showed no signs of letting up after returning from injury and were in a position to afford his contract so, while we think Macoy could be really good, this along with the addition of Pineda, gives us what we believe to be one of the better rotations in mlb pro. Insert generic thanks to trade partner here.
  6. The following deal has been agreed upon: Indians send 1B Isaaco Sico & LF Tyler Hill (A+ Lynchburg) Blue Jays send SP Michael Pineda This is a bit risky with Pineda coming off a big injury but we feel there is enough there when he is healthy that this was worth a shot. Sico is a decent but not great 1B and Hill is someone who could be good but I don't mind moving him. Hopefully Pineda fills a gap that we need to fill and this moves us to that next level. Thanks Mitchell. You're a gem, but Drake sucks
  7. Indians confirm. We like Javier as a DH, especially vs LHP, our weakness. The pitchers are decent but still question marks in my scouts eyes. Thanks Soze
  8. Indians confirm. We had no plans on bringing Egan Smith back and we figured taking a chance on a couple fliers would be worth it. Plus Otero’s nickname is god-tier. Thanks Hodges. You’re a champ
  9. Indians accept. We liked the Montero signing at the time but he didn’t provide the numbers we were really after. We will miss Lester but felt shedding the contract was worth it. Always a pleasure Hodges
  10. Indians accept. It's not the big deal we've been trying so hard to swing but Khris Davis does indeed mash lefties and can platoon with Ayala, who has been awful vs LHP. We liked Eierman quite a bit but felt this trade was worth it. Thanks Jason for the easy negotiations
  11. The following deal has been agreed upon CLE sends SP David Price, SS Derek Fletcher (AA) NYY sends CF Dee Gordon (AAA) The following deal is purely financial. We believe Price still has value but we just can't afford the contract. We lose a good IF prospect in Fletcher to unload Price and get back Gordon, who hasn't been very good this year but we feel he could still have value as an incredibly well-paid pinch runner Thanks Rhett. You are a true gentleman in this league of heathens
  12. We accept. Shuler is a guy I targeted in the draft but missed out. My scout thinks he could be quite good plus his name goes in the name hall of fame. We like Rhodes but with no real prospects minus Rosado in AAA, and with our ML PC spot filled, Rhodes was expendable. Always a pleasure Jack
  13. Indians confirm. We send some loose change for a couple guys my scout likes and hopefully they turn into something. Thanks Rockies. Always a pleasure
  14. Tribe accept. We like French but we think his arb number next season is a bit high for a backup to my backup. Didi more than likely wasn’t going to make it to the big roster for me either. We get a couple of younger catchers that my scout likes and another person to add to the name hall of fame in Flobert Ubbels Thanks Jack. Easy as always
  15. Hi Matt. Can Tago please be sent to San Diego as part of my trade with them? Thanks
