Is Brandon Moss for Rob Kaminsky the worst John Mozeliak trade ever?

I’m not going to sugar coat this at all. This is quite possibly the worst trade in John Mozeliak’s history with the Cardinals. First of all, Mo…stop trading with Chris Antonetti. He’s destroyed you every time. Justin Masterson was crap when you got him. Mark DeRosa was crap when you got him. Jake Westbrook was middling at best when you got him. At least you made the Indians...

Frazier in the Red Zone

For sports aficionados the red zone concerns the potential for a team to score. For the past several weeks this term might be one you could apply to High Class-A Lynchburg outfielder Clint Frazier, the #2 prospect of the Cleveland Indians system.

The Indians Columbus Storage Facility

Every Major League baseball team’s AAA farm club is there to serve two purposes. Primarily, it is the final step for prospects before they hit the Major Leagues. It is the separator for borderline prospects as many players on AAA rosters have at least some Major League experience. The secondary reason is to store these players with Major League experience. Unlike the middle and...

Cleveland Indians trade rumors: Carlos Carrasco edition

For a majority of the 2015 MLB season, it wasn’t known what position the Cleveland Indians would take at the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline. The Tribe hung around in the AL Central and wild card standings through the first three and a half months of the season, never close enough to be declared buyers but never far enough to be seen as definite sellers. But then, last week...

Indians won't trade Aviles due to daughter's leukemia battle

The Cleveland Indians aren’t out of the playoff race quite yet, but there’s one player who definitely isn’t for sale ahead of the Major League Baseball trade deadline. At 45-48, the Indians certainly aren’t a lock for the postseason. However, the club is 4 1/2 games out of an American League wild card spot and could have a fighting chance with a few good moves. But even...

Could Indians be looking to trade Jose Ramirez?

The Cleveland Indians are in an odd situation when it comes to the upcoming trade deadline. Yes, they’re a disappointing team sitting at 44-47. They remain only 5.5 games out of a wild card spot.
