    The Indians won’t trade Jose Ramirez unless it is a tremendous overpay. This is not that overpay. Cleveland says no.

  2. Big Bat

    Even if they were to deal Ramirez at some point, this deal doesn’t do it for me and I doubt Chernoff would sign off on it either. There isn’t enough meat on the bone in this deal and there is no replacement for Ramirez.

  3. Will M

    Assuming Cleveland ever trades Ramirez and his relatively cheap deal, I’m not sure the would go for quantity over quality. Fewer better prospects (Waters is a nice start) would probably be more enticing. That said, Cleveland is likely to keep him while they are still a competitive team…

    • Nate Dub

      The Indians have a tremendously talented scouting department and it’s very unlikely they’d be flimflammed into taking Drew Waters as the key piece to a deal for Ramirez.

      I’ve been pretty down on Waters, and I know a lot of teams are as well. I think the Braves are going to be stuck with him, and if they want to land an elite talent like Jose Ramirez, they’ll need to begin dealing out at least one of their controllable pitchers and then a pretty hefty price on prospects, possibly including Waters as the second or third piece.
