    Cleveland is not going to pay Adam Ottavino 9 million. The Indians normally, and especially post covid-19, are not going to take on a team’s bad contract. That is not the way that they operate.


      I think you are jus making up excuses.
      If, instead, we forget about Ottavino, and have the Indians kick in $2,5 mil to even the money out, is the trade okay then?
      Remember, Lindor and Hand are both free agents after 2021, and will cost the Indians approximately a combined $35 mil in salary in 2021.
      Voit made all of $634,000 pro-rated in 2020 and will be starting his first of four arbitration eligible years in 2021. For the money conscious Indians, this trade makes a lot of sense.

        I am not sure any of us quite understand how teams will react to the financial losses due to covid-19. Indian president Chris Antonetti stated that their losses were massive. I totally expect the money conscious Indians to be even more money conscious since we all do not know right now how covid-19 will affect the 2021 season. They will likely trade Hand’s salary and they will not take on any bad salary like Ottavino. Watch how the Yankees will also be more conservative in 2021. The Indians will not want Ottavino or do any trade taking on a bad contract.

        • John Bitzer

          Agreed. A lot of teams will be shedding salary this offseason.

            John, I have an unrelated question for you. Is there a way that you can differentiate between the two Logan Allens on the Indian’s roster. Both are left handed pitchers and I can not tell which value goes with which Logan Allen. Thanks in advance.

        • John Bitzer

          To your question about differentiating the Logan Allens, we have added middle initials to each. The more established one is Logan S. Allen now; the prospect they just drafted is Logan T. Allen.

          It’s surprising to us none of the major baseball sites are differentiating them yet — but in fairness it was hard to find those initials.
