  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. Hi Matt. Can Tago please be sent to San Diego as part of my trade with them? Thanks
  19. The following deal has been agreed upon CLE sends 1B Austin Jones (A-), CL Jon Kent (AA) and SP Peter Tago (via COL AAA affiliate Albuquerque) SD sends SP Steven Matz It's been no secret that the Tribe have been trying to upgrade the bottom of our rotation with a bit more of a long term piece (even though Joe Kelly has done well in his time there) and we feel as though Matz fills that role. Tago was going on waivers when we got him anyway and while we like Jones and Kent, we feel the immediate upgrade to the rotation is more helpful for us considering our surprising start to the season. We hope that Matz' struggles will go away with a change of scenery as his k/9 and bb/9 numbers are still very respectable. Thank you Sean for the easy negotiations!
  20. Indians confirm We are doing the MLB Pro equivalent of drinking away our sorrows after the bullshit trade earlier other things happened earlier today. In this one, we get a young guy that we really, really like in Jesse Evans, another guy we looked at in draft in M.D. Johnson and some AAAA players although Tago will be going on waivers and was taken to help Eddie with $. Moving Mann also makes way for the ML debut of Ken Gary which originally wasn't going to happen but whatever, it is now Thanks Eddie. Always a pleasure mate
  21. Indians accept It was really hard for me to trade a guy with an A+ name like Blaze Alexander but my scout really likes Jack Lamb quite a lot and how can I pass up a name like Feyzioglu?
  22. The following deal has been agreed upon CLE sends 1B Ron Foster (AAA) ATL sends 1B Thomas Field (AAA) Indians do this as we need help vs LH and while Field isn't an all-star by any means, he will be a nice backup 1B/3B that can play vs LH. Thanks Brenton. You're a gem.
  23. Indians accept. My scout loves Fletcher and I need better IF depth. Baxter is great but is blocked by Chris Betts anyway so it was better to address some other issues we have. My scout likes Stephenson a bunch as well and thinks he could possibly be as good as Baxter but is also young and our catcher depth in the lower levels is non-existant. I won't thank Rocky publicly but I also won't say anything mean about him until the end of this sentence. Rocky sucks
  24. Indians accept. We didn’t have a roster spot for Echevarria after acquiring Tink so had to put him on waivers and we like Parkinson a little bit so we feel like taking on Didi was worth it to get Parkinson. Thanks Hodges, always a pleasure old friend
  25. The following trade has been agreed upon CLE sends SP Anthony Klumpp (AA), SP Tyson Oswalt (A-), SP Gary Griffith (A-) & CF Mason Majerle (A-) PIT sends CF Tink Jones We have been searching for an upgrade at RF and a big bat all season and we believe we found that in Tink. We know his AVG is low but we're hoping that picks up. Despite his struggles, he is still on pace for 98 RBIs this season, which would easily slot into the top spot on Cleveland. We weren't that attached to any of the prospects we are moving so figured this was a risk worth taking. Thanks Greg. All the best
