Another suggestion for a cleveland trade..
This is Krusty's trade, modified.
How about sending them Ed Encarcion and Pena for Coco Krisp and Sowers.
The Indians need a 3b and an OF to replace Krisp.
The Reds improve their OF defense, get pitching to build on and retain payflex.
I think I would do this one. As much as I'd hate to lose EdE, we need premium young pitching more. I'm willing to play stopgaps at 3b until we get the pitching puzzle solved.
Don't know if the Indians do this deal, but it certainly helps them (both shortterm and longterm).
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
