My point was that with the Indians collapsing this year I have a feeling they'd be open to offers of most players. Maybe Choo's untouchable in their opinion, in which case my suggestion is moot.
So....anybody know what the Tribe is looking for?
They would need a replacement for Choo, for one. I think they are ok with Chisenhall at 3b, Cabrera at SS, Kipnis at 2b, Santana at C, and Brantley in CF. That leaves LF, 1b, and pitching, and RF. Personally, I'd like Brantley the most. A few years of team control, good OBP in CF...Bailey and Stubbs for Brantley would be my first guess.
