Only things I can think of are keeping Carrasco and signing a major league CF or 1B, but then who knows what they would have got in return only for Lindor and I don’t have any names off the top of my head for the CF or 1B. I still wouldn’t want them to spend Springer money. Also, who knows how Carrasco holds up health-wise.You mean like we just did in 2018-2019, where our average payroll was over 130 million?
I've asked this question multiple times. Nobody has a specific example.
From their own mouths, the organization has basically done everything it can, and hasn't made a bad move. They still don't like it. It's somehow flawless and awful at the same time.
I'm beginning to believe they don't have a genuine critique. They just like to be curmudgeons.
Other option is to keep Bauer until the off-season, but then again, who knows how much less they would have gotten in return. Also, he was really bad that half year, which wouldn’t have helped the Indians if he pitched like that in Cleveland.
No front office is perfect, but the Indians front office is absolutely great.
