  1. I don’t see Kansas City doing this trade.

    • Jack Lee

      Take out Soler/Kennedy and Rocchio:

      Bradley, Plesac, Freeman for Merrifield seems like a favorable package. It is possible KC would want Civale over Plesac, which is where I think the Indians could throw in another peripheral piece.

  2. E Schwarz

    I can’t see the Indians taking on Kennedy’s contract or trading Plesac.

  3. Larry Krueger

    I think this trade idea has good possibilities. I agree with both Hockeyjohn and JetTribe 13 that it needs some tinkering. Cleveland
    getting both Merrifield for 2nd base and Soler for a corner outfield spot definitely fills 2 needs. It may be worth taking on Kennedy’s
    contract since Kennedy still pitched well (war 1.4 per Baseball Reference) last year. The inclusion of Plesac or Civale shouldn’t be a hinderance to this
    trade because of Cleveland’s depth at starting pitching. If Tristin McKenzie is ready to pitch in the majors next year that just adds to
    their depth. Cleveland may be more hesitant to trade 1B Bradley if they think he’ll be ready to take Santana’s place next year when
    Carols becomes a free agent. Kudos to CleTribe007 for a well thought out trade.
