  1. I get that you want Lindor as 75% of your trades involve Lindor. It is going to take an overpay to get Lindor. Any Lindor trade has to help the Indians in 2020 and beyond. None of your trades provide a package that would overwhelm the Indians so they would never happen. That is why most of your trades are overwhelmingly voted down.

    • I get that your an Indians fan, who thinks you should get a teams top 3 prospects for 2 whole years of Lindor, but it isn’t going to happen. If Riley adjust (like he has at every level) and figures out how to hit the off speed stuff, that gives the Indians a cost controlled 3B of the future with 35+ HR potential and allows them to move Ramirez back to 2nd. Then you have a top C prospect, power hitting OF prospect and a SS prospect… it’s more than enough for Lindor. The Braves have a gold glove SS (that you call mediocre) which he may be with the bat but he has also improved that each in each of his MLB seasons, so Lindor is an improvement with the bat. As a Braves fan I would love to have Lindor, this site is for fun, I don’t think there is a need for you to comment something negative on every single post involving the Indians, as your judgement is just as biased as any other fan on this site. I appreciate your opinion but disagree with your view.

      • What you do not seem to understand is the Indians are not planning to rebuild in 2020 which is why they have not traded him to date. It would take a particular trade that allows them to still contend in 2020. That type of trade provides controllable help with strong potential that is MLB ready now such as a Gavin Lux which was their ask of the Dodgers which was refused. The Dodgers, like Atlanta, could put together a tremendous package of prospects to a rebuilding team, but that is not what the Indians are looking for so no trade was ever made.

        Atlanta could make a wonderful package for Lindor IF the Indians were in a rebuilding mode. A package then would headlined by either Pache or Waters which would best fit the Indians needs in that situation. But again, the Indians are NOT REBUILDING. They won 93 games despite many injuries to key personnel in 2019. Contending in 2020 is the stated goal from the Cleveland front office.

        This site allows for and encourages comments and discussion. I am not expecting you to agree with me, but I am allowed to express my opinion and share my viewpoint. I say it often, because some posters, such as yourself, refuse to consider the needs and stated goals of the Indians when proposing trades.

        In closing, you ought to know that once you post a response, an e-mail is sent to all who have commented on that post even if you later decide to erase your comment. Your name calling was rude and very juvenile. Be better than that. Have a nice Sunday.

        • You keep saying they’re not in a rebuild. I guess you could argue it’s a “retooling”, but when they give Kluber away and slash their payroll by almost 30 million, they sure aren’t going for it.

  2. Lindor would definitely provide an improvement to the Braves, but only for 2 years, teams don’t just get guarantees in a trade like you want the Indians to, sometimes there are risk ( ex. Riley) Stop acting like your the decision maker for the Indians and stop commenting on my post, thanks.
