Well...we are at the All-Star break...time to start talking about deadline deals.
I don't see the Tribe re-signing David Price if they were to be able to get him from Tampa (HIGHLY doubt there is a chance without giving up Lindor). IF there were an agreement as a part of a trade...who would you be willing to give up in order to get him?
IMO, in order to compete THIS year, we would need front end rotation help, a consistent hitter/power hitter (either one), and maybe another pen arm (not a HUGE concern, but...better to have too many than one too few).
Ths issues with these needs...who do you bump out of the rotation (Masterson, McAllister)? If we were to get a bat, who gets bumped out (too much money locked up in the guys that need bumped...and, now that Chisenhall is hitting...he and Santana HAVE to be in the line-up and Swisher isn't going to sit)?
Should be interesting to see whether we are buyers or sellers...have 2 pieces that COULD bring something of pretty solid value back (Cabrera and Masterson)...but, sitting 7.5 games back in the division and only 3.5 games back in the WC standings...it would be hard to sell to the fanbase if they decided to sell.
