    I swear if one more person tells me – “This doesnt adress the Indians need for OF” I’m going to lose it –
    The Indians do not NEED TO ACQUIRE OF help in the Lindor trade – there are plenty of affordable OFs on the free agent market or in a separate low-cost trade. The trade for Lindor should not revolve around who gives them an outfielder, but rather who gives them the best package – This is the Best/Most realistic package the Indians could be acquiring for Lindor. In addition –
    The Indians have rising talent in Reyes and Naylor, and will have an improved OF next season even if they make no changes. Clearly they need to add a proven OF if they want to contend in the AL central, but that improvement does not have to come from the Lindor trade.

    • Eli Kov

      by believing this is a viable trade for the Indians.. you’ve already lost it..

      NO.. they don’t need their # 4 and # 5 SS prospect.. (Rosario would be 8th)
      NO.. they don’t need pitching as the primary return for one of the five or ten best players in all of baseball..

      This deal wreaks of “…we’ll get rid of these guys and get back two stud Pitchers and the best SS in baseball while NOT TOUCHING any of our best guys (prospects or players)..

      Hard PASS on this terrible trade..

    • One, Lindor is their best trade chip. Two, with their covid financial losses the Indians are not likely to go into the free agent market.
      Three, Reyes is a DH and Naylor may be a possibility at 1B or the OF but that is one spot.

      Francisco Lindor is their best trade chip. Outfield is their biggest need. A Lindor trade SHOULD ADDRESS their biggest need.
      To use your line “I am going to lose it” when people keep ignoring the needs of the Indians when proposing their trades.

    • Ed Rakow

      The Mets can’t trade Peterson and they can’t really trade any top pitching prospects either

  2. Cleveland’s biggest need is MLB OF help. This proposal does not address that need. The Indian farm system is loaded with middle infield prospects. This proposal does not meet Cleveland’s needs.

    Um, no. If youre demanding OF help in the Lindor trade you are limiting the number of teams you can negotiate with to, esentially, just the yankees (Frazier) or the Mets with Nimmo. The indians are going to get ALOT of offers on Lindor and they are going to take the best package out there. Yes they need OF help and yes the market is depressed but there are plenty of affordable FA OFs, and the Indians arent going to take a lesser package just because it includes an OF

    • sam clark

      I predict the Indians sign Pederson, and trade Lindor to whichever team gives them the best players.

      • The Indians are not likely to enter the free agency market due to their finances. Their best option is to get what they need in any Lindor trade. Try looking at the whole picture for the Indians.

    Also, Luplow and Naquin are solid young OFs and could be integrated through platoon or packaged in a trade
