Lets just say that if you peruse half the thread dedicated to thoughts on trading Jose, it won't be difficult to find a dozen references to trading him now.

A lot of posts advocating for or against trading key players are totally dependent on the poster's definition of contender, and where the team presently fits in regards to that definition.

For some, and they often are in favor of trading now or soon, the only true contender is a team among the favorites to win the World Series. They aren't interested in winning a division or getting a WC.

For them, anything short of the Series is failure.

Others, and I fall into that category, view any year that the Tribe makes the post season, esp by winning the division, as a success. Anything after that is gravy.

I'm old fashion that way. As a fan of the Buckeyes, I have only two goals...beat Michigan, then win the B10. I dont even worry about anything after that until those two goals are met.

Is this team a true contender? I haven't decided yet. There are lots of encouraging signs, but some of those signs are from players I simply don't trust, as I have always put stock in track records, trends, and what I see with mine own eyes.

But, sitting on a beach right now, rum drink in hand, I'm not able to see anything. (I'm not complaining)

Most of what Bimbo has stated is very encouraging...and I am grateful. Much, not all, of what I have heard from others I trust is in agreement.

So we shall see.

But I am tending towards a more optimistic point of view than I had in January.

I am wondering, do you have Gson on ignore or something? I see you constantly making posts with "haven't seen one post,' 'there isn't a single poster' or 'no one here is saying' to multiple posters here, but if you saw Gson's posts, you would understand where they are coming from.
I don't have anyone on "ignore" and I don't recall Gson posting that Ramirez should be dealt before the AS break without the underlying circumstances that I mentioned. I'm not saying I agree or disagree with Gson, just that I don't recall him stating such. Maybe I'm mistaken.

Some people just have a real kink for trade talk. It is their thing, but that does not make them bad people.
:cool:
