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.
