    Signed 2B Cesar Hernandez, one year 6 mil.

    Seems like an okay signing.  Appears they paid a fair price for the one year contract.

    The crazy part is, with that signing and the Kluber trade they are a much better team right now than the one that won 93 last season. The Kluber trade was bad value, but we didn’t even have him last season, and 2B is an upgrade now. It’s shocking, but true. 
    This all goes out the window if Lindor is traded, obviously.

    Yeah.. seems like a good signing. I wish they’d pay a little extra and try to get a team option for a second year. 
     To me, this signals the last “ window “ before they break up and rebuild. Next year,  Santana is gone and Lindor for sure.  I just hope this year is not a half hearted effort.

    Absolutely we are better ... but it is also true that we can’t count on 16 or 17 Ws off the Tigers this year... and the ChiSox stuck it to us at the end of last year when we needed to win the most... they will be a factor. We need one more big bat in the OF to put behind Lindor, JRam and Reyes.

    Anyone heard anything about where Kipnis is headed?

    Chicago is scary. Think they are a year away, but they are gonna linger and make things hell on the contenders

    They have spent over $140 million in contracts this off season—- so far. They will contend.

    I don’t trust their pitching yet. Outside of Giolito.

    White Sox in pursuit of Puig. SMH.

    Quiet.  Waiting out the market for that 38 year old lightning in a bottle

    Nice article from Kluber in the Players Tribune today

    I thought Norm retired.  ;-)

    I think I read about him here on the OC 1986 Dead Pool thread.

    Tribe signs all arbitration eligible players... now that the unknown contracts are established, time to go out and get that big bat for the Outfield! LOL.

    in other words, what Verbal Kint said three posts ago... waiting out the market for this years attempt to catch lightning in a bottle.

    At this point, I'd like to see them resign Puig. It seems to make sense for both sides. He is better than most of the question marks that we have for outfielders, and Puig didn't get offered the big contracts that he expected from bigger markets.

    Sat, Jan 11, 2020 10:55 PM

    Yes, get Puig.  Now. 

    Sun, Jan 12, 2020 9:02 AM

    Puig was projected to be 1 year, 8M

     

    He hit 2 HR in 49 games with Cleveland last year
