  1. Indians accept. As above. I’ll miss Lil’Jordan but it’s great to have Espy back
  2. 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)
  3. 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!
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
