    In this proposal, the Reds clean up, the Indians give up, and the Tigers screw up. You have Detroit trading their best trade piece for an poor defensive, platoon outfielder that at best would only have a year maybe two of control when the Tigers are ready to compete. Detroit says no.

    You have the Indians giving up on 2020 and 2021 by trading their best hitter, their closer, a member of their starting rotation with 6 years of control, and another minor league pitching prospect and get 5 years of a highly touted, yet often injured player in Senzel and another outfielder that would not likely make the Indians triple A roster. Senzel would have to play in the outfield in 2020 as both 3B and 2B are spoken for the Tribe. That would add Senzel and Schebler to the 10 other outfielders that are currently on the Indians 40 man roster. Who then plays SS for the Indians in 2020 and 2021 until Tyler Freeman is ready? If the Indians trade Brad Hand, who then is the closer? Cleveland’s bullpen is already missing Emmanuel Clase due to his suspension. Also you have the Indians weakening their starting pitching by trading 6 years of Civale and 6 years of McKenzie. So the Indians are going to weaken 3 positions on their team to add two more outfielders to the 10 that they already have.

    The Reds clean up because they get the best shortstop in the game today, a solid closer to add to their bullpen and two starters that can replace Bauer and Disco if they leave in free agency.

    So the Reds get much better, the Tigers squander their best trade chip on an unnecessary piece, and the Indians decimate their team for 2020 and 2021.

    Cleveland and Detroit would say no to this trade.

      I should note that we are in the midst of updating the values now to reflect the shortened season, so some trade proposals will catch us in between. The ones that show the yeas of control ending in “.3” have been updated; the others have not been updated yet.
