    Good trade for both teams. Braves get a top of the rotation arm, 3B of the future. Indians get a future star outfielder (future sooner than later), SS of the future, 2 relief arms (Newcome to the bullpen where he is better, imo) and a power bat for the OF, who will surprise if he had more playing time.

    Indians give up a player that a majority of the team is pissed at and a top prospect who is unfortunately blocked because of Ramirez.

    Who says no? And why? <— please answer before hitting thumbs down

      From the Indians perspective:
      1) A player like Waters would be a great addition, and I hope the Indians find a way to get an outfielder like him/Marsh.
      2) But they are really hyped about Jones, which is why the plan is for Ramirez to move to 2B to make room. I highly doubt he is on the table for trades, unless they are blown away by the offer.
      3) The pitchers would be at best the #5/6 option out of the bullpen, so they don’t add much.
      4) There’s a glut of SS prospects, albeit none that will probably be ready in the short-term. I’m going to assume they will sign a stop-gap for a 1-2 year deal that can keep them competitive after Lindor is traded and before one or two prospects separate themselves from the pack.
      5) Duvall would be nice kicker for a deal that’s close, but I don’t think this one is it.
