  1. Indians confirm Cumberland is blocked with Betts being my go-to and we fell Young could help our struggling bullpen if he gets to his full potential. Easy swap. Thanks Eddie, you're the best Buchholz brother for sure!
  2. We accept. Middle IF depth is weak for us so always nice to add a little depth for cheap. Captain status always nice too. Cheers Eddie
  3. Indians accept. Walker is an upgrade in our IF and the cost was right. Thanks Rhett. Always a pleasure
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. Indians accept. As above. I’ll miss Lil’Jordan but it’s great to have Espy back
  9. 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)
  10. 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!
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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.
