    Purely by accident, I was mildly amused that the model has all three teams “winning” this trade by getting back more value than they’re giving up. Didn’t even know that was a possibility. Clearly I stumbled upon some perfect alignment of the stars. Anyhow, other minor pieces could easily be thrown in, such as middling relievers or fringe prospects. It’s already almost too large of a trade to begin with though.

      It appears that the cash is what’s throwing off the balance. The negative “winning” values add up to that amount. It seems like it’s not being factored into the outgoing amounts?

      Anyway, the Indians very quickly say no. There’s no way they’re taking on any significant contract.

        Yeah, we recently discovered a bug that sometimes occurs with cash in three-way trades. We’re working on the fix now. Sorry about that.

        Heading into the season with < $63MM in CBT payroll, but tons of question marks in the OF. They've only got JoRam for 3 more years. Aside from their pitching, what do they really bring to the table with their batters? Basically nothing. If they're not willing to go higher than $63MM, why not just trade JoRam for a haul of cost-controlled players and hope to get lucky?

          It appears the plan for 2021 is to see what they have. They are carrying solid vets at 4 positions (E Rosario, Jose Ramirez, Hernandez, and Perez/Hedges… Obviously the last won’t contribute offensively though), and have a collection of young players they want to give a chance to (Gimenez, Naylor, Jones, Johnson, Bradley, among others). Yes the outfield is a giant hole, but unless a trade for Jose is plugging both the holes at 3rd and CF with above average players, and not adding to next seasons roster crunch, then I don’t see how it’s will be worth it. Prospects bust all the time, but if the Indians are confident in the core coming through in the next season or 2, they’d probably rather have Jose around for that than trade him for anything they’d get in 2021.
