  1. The Indians accept. Middle IF is the shallowest position in our entire organisation and because some bastard who I won’t name but his name rhymes with Babs bid me up on a certain FA, I had to try the trade market. Eierman is someone my scout likes quite a bit but I’m not sure if he is quite ready so Kozma is a solid insurance piece. Always a pleasure Heinz
  2. The following deal has been agreed upon CLE sends 1B Keon Barnum, RP Ken Gary & 2B Jonathan India (AA) OAK sends RP Hudson Boyd, CF Aaron Phillips & 2B Jazz Chisholm (AAA) This was a hard trade for me to do and might seem to be a bit of a backwards move considering we're trying to win now. That is how highly my scout thinks of Chisholm, and he plays a position harder to fill with potential stars. I like India a lot and have rebuffed offers for him in the past but I think Chisholm is better than him in pretty much every way and he is closer to the bigs. Barnum just had a great season for us but I feel 1B is easy to replace (hopefully anyway). Phillips can be a great 4th OF for us or he is young enough to develop a little more in AAA if need be. Thanks Scott. Best of luck in your hellhole division
  3. We do this deal for a couple reasons. Getting out of Pineda's deal may seem the obvious thing but we potentially take on more money if he chooses to opt out with Joseph. However Joseph will be our DH from next season as we won't be able to resign Roddy Espinoza.
  4. Indians agree. This will be Tomlins third stint with us and hopefully he can help out the struggling backend of our rotation. Thanks Sam and best of luck
  5. Indians accept. As above. I’ll miss Lil’Jordan but it’s great to have Espy back
  6. Indians agree We need bullpen help and Bass, despite a high BABIP, has still put up respectable numbers this season. We move out Alex Collins, who I still think could be the best player in this trade if he figures things out but I can't afford for him to keep costing me games. M.D. is decent but as Brenton described, very much a flyer. Thanks Brenton. Always a pleasure. (I feel like we must hold the record for most completed trades between two teams by now)
  7. The following deal has been agreed upon: CLE sends SS Micah Mason (R) CIN sends RP Yosuke Ichikawa Our bullpen ranks 14th or 15th in the AL and that's just not gonna cut it. While we think Ichikawa's numbers are due to rise a little, we still view him as an upgrade and a solid vet for our young, inexperienced bullpen. Mason is a rookie we like quite a bit and has serious defensive potential, but he is far away. Thanks Scott and all the best on the rebuild!
  8. Indians accept I know it's early in the season but we're concerned with how the middle of the rotation has performed so far this season so we decided to make a move now to upgrade considering there are few pieces available. Pill is a definite upgrade for sure. It's true, this wasn't even a thought yesterday and now it's done. Proud of you Brentoni. Hope these prospects work out for you
  9. The following deal has been agreed upon The Indians send 1B Nick Delmonico The White Sox send 3B Nick Brandon (A+) With the moves we've made, Delmonico found himself as the odd man out unfortunately, as we do like him. With this, we clear a much needed roster space and get a prospect who, despite his low intelligence and work ethic, is liked enough by my scout where I am somewhat intrigued. Thanks for the painless deal Hodges. Always a pleasure
  10. Indians accept. we overlooked the fact we had no lefties in our pen. Guerrero seemed to be one of the better affordable pieces and he will also give me a sweet, sweet popularity boost for the fans which means more moneys. love you Heinz
  11. We accept. Espinoza has proven that he can put up numbers in pitchers parks previously and can hit vs LHP, something Barnum cannot do. He also doesn't give us a long term commitment and fills a hole nicely until Gregorio Lopez is ML-ready. Thanks to Heinz for doing the heavy lifting on this one.
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
