    Do you look at the needs of the teams when proposing trades? Cleveland has 4 center fielders with mlb experience on their 40 man roster so why would they need another light hitting outfielder in Bader. Reyes has pitched in 5 games in three years. He is going to have to prove he is healthy to have any trade value. This package will not get Lindor.

      I agree with you for the most part, but Bader might be the best defensive center fielder in the game, and he’s got some upside with the bat.

    A) Bader’s defense always holds value, and if he hits better he instantly becomes the CF starter. (reminder cards allowed your current stater to go because Bader was better)

    B) Reyes is a toss in because its clear the BP needs help if the Indians are digging through the cardinals BP trash with the Leone signing, plus Clev is out for a bit so Reyes could be a great flyer.

    This package would 100% get Lindor and is a slight over pay but hey I do this for my own enjoyment so you can be as negative as you want, doesn’t bother me.

    1. Mercado is pretty good defensively who has had hitting success in the majors. Cardinals chose the wrong player. 2. Bradley Zimmer is a former number 1 pick that is an outstanding defensive center fielder with upside. 3. DeShields is also a very good defensive center fielder. Why do they need Bader. The answer is they do not. You do not trade a stud like Lindor for a center fielder that they do not need and an injury waiting to happen. The Indians would weaken ss to get players that they do not need. Also every team signs a few minor league deals so your bullpen comments are also incorrect. Cleveland’s bullpen was one of the better ones in the AL last year and have two young flamethrowers to add to it this year.

    Your offer does not help meet the needs of the Indians and would be turned down. In any trade, both teams needs must be met for a trade to happen and this would not help the Indians. If you see anyone that disagrees with you as negative then I feel bad for you. I can’t help it that you didn’t research the Indians before making your proposal.
