Awful comparison; the Nats had the 3rd highest payroll in baseball this year, even ahead of the Dodgers. It's pretty easy to speculate that they wouldn't have won without doling out the money for Corbin.My main hope from the Nats winning is to show the various "nay-sayers" that the Tribe is still contending for the title.
Nats/ Tribe - same record in 2019
Nats/ Tribe - strength of club is starting pitching
Nats/ Tribe - a couple of good bullpen pieces
Nats/ Tribe - a couple great players in the lineup & a handful of role players doing a job
The Tribe is not in need of spending $40M in free agency to get a couple of pieces and the Tribe is not in need of massive tear down & rebuild.
They are in a position to contend in 2020 & moving forward.. Breaking spring training with a legit chance to win is all I hope for each year..
The Indians aren't going to win anything by continuing to cut costs.
