    Kluber traded to Rangers.

     

    Wow. 
     

    Actually don’t mind. Hopefully we got some good return on this. 
     

    My problem with Kluber was that he was an uber Charles Nagy. Racked up a lot of wins, but when it came to a game we really needed, not there.

    And we get DeShields and Clase. 
     

    hmmmmmm

    I don't like this trade at all.

    That return is putrid. Classe is a really nice piece but still a reliever. DeShields is just another 4th OFer...so I guess he’ll fit right in with our other 5.

    What? He was unhittable in 2016 until we made him throw like 900 pitches in 1 postseason and he finally cracked in game 7 (and still wasn’t awful).

    2017 would’ve been nice to have him healthy, and not trying to pitch through the oblique injury. 

    2018 was bad, but who knows how good he actually was with the cheating Astros.

    ^^^^^^^^^ And yet, you actually agree with me.

    This would have been a good trade if we would have gotten a PTBNL based on Kluber’s performance. As it stands, it’s just a salary dump with little upside.

    This can still be salvaged if we take the money saved from Kluber’s salary and go out and get a positive addition to make the team better.

    yeah, I know. Just dreaming.

    No, I’m saying he had 1 bad game in his 7 postseason starts with us. Plus 2 where he had a pulled oblique and team kept it quite until season was over. He shouldn’t have even been on the postseason roster in 2017.

    Kluber’s post season record is 4-3. 
     

    Here’s one I agree with you on: DeShields does nothing for this team. 2019: .249 4 homers 32 rbi

    If they win game 7, he is WS MVP. I see 1.5 bad games in 2016/18, and then 2 games in 2017 when he was injured and shouldn’t have been on the roster.

    People wanted Bauer and “trusted him”, but Kluber was the stalwart. He was a true Ace in 2016, and dominated 3 great offenses (3x I believe in short rest). Not sure what else we wanted?

    This post.  Exactly.

    Dumped Kluber's salary, picked up a reliever with potential, sent another message to Zimmer..........all in one transaction.

    Problem is it screams salary dump, so highly unlikely it is reinvested.

    The Indians are getting smeared in the national media for this one.

    As in “What the hell are they doing?”

    They deserve it. The trade is awful, even if it pans out. They have 1 more year to go for it, and they are instead selling before the season. Its a complete joke.

    Trading Kluber wasnt a bad option to improve the team. Trading him and not getting a bat, or even an above average OFer or 2B is a travesty. But they couldnt do that, because someone like that is going to have decent salary attached. Its why it is so obvious all they wanted to do was get rid of his salary. In that retrospect, its actually amazing they got Clase in the deal lol.

    Yeah........what the hell ARE they doing?

    Next will be Lindor and teams will be licking their chops because of this trade that the front office apparently was satisfied with.

    I see what you did there. Reps!! Dolan's are cheap. I wonder what kind of 2nd baseman they will come up with.
    Tony Bernazard or Jack Brohamer anyone?
