Franmil Reyes is a pretty good player. The Indians did super well. Got prospects, an outfielder to help for this year, and a second outfielder per-arbitration that's probably just as good.

Happy that Bauer is out of the division early, but it feels like the Indians have reloaded a bit to stay relevant into our window.

If they're projectable mid rotation arms, that makes them second teir. It's not like they traded Cease and Kopech. I didn't say third rate AAAA players, but if it makes you laugh to pretend I did, by all means, carry on

Seems a little crazy to unload a rotation stalwart while you're in contention though. Wonder if Bauer being a lunatic had anything to do with it. Some of the last words Francona would have said to him were "what the **** is wrong with you?" and "get the **** out of here."

So the Tribe gets a guy who is facing a suspension. Poetic.

Classic Indians trade. They have an excellent track record of trading away a veteran nearing the end of his contract for a future playoff team mainstay. This is how they got Bauer in the first place....as well as Kluber and Carrasco.

Castellanos to cubs.

Just what they needed, another crap defensive outfielder.

The Astros gave up a lot there in Corbin Martin, Bukauskas, and Seth Beer. The Dbacks must be picking up a lot of the tab on Greinke's contract.
