Indians trade looming?

Unread postby consigliere » Wed Mar 21, 2007 11:25 pm

Nothing huge, but apparently tons of scouts are looking at the many Cleveland relievers and outfielders in the system that will be stuffed in Buffalo or be final additions to the big league club.

It would not surprise me to see an outfielder traded....whether it be Gutierrez for a utility player, or Michaels for anything to open a spot for Francisco.

Also, a reliever to be sent packing in a trade for something. Maybe combined with one of the outfielders listed above for a need.

I will be very surprised if Jason Michaels is with this team all year. I know they just signed him to a 2-year extension with a club option for a 3rd, but he is very tradeable. The org is high on The Francisco Treat, and by June may replace him....if not sooner.

I hope you are right. I would like to see Francisco over the journeyman Michaels. They could trade him today and not miss anything.

I'm 100% with you DGen.

I was puzzled they resigned Michaels this past offseason. I understand they wanted someone to count on in the 4th OFer role, and Micaels is a decent 4th OFer.....but I think their fears of using Gutierrez or Francisco will be put to rest quickly this year.
