The Cleveland Indians limped into the playoffs and were promptly swept aside. Now the heavy hitters with aging assets are looking to do what every non-large market team does: sell.
Faced with market constraints, the Indians will listen to trade offers for some of their veteran players this winter, according to sources. Kluber, Carrasco, Encarnacion, Gomes, etc. Lindor, Ramirez will definitely be held.

Nothing like a Friday Afternoon to break some bad news.
Such is life in a world with limited resources.
Not sure how Cleveland fans don’t see this as a giant middle finger. You have two of the top-5 players in baseball and you’re going to sell.
I guess winning a championship is not a priority.

There’s no doubting the Rays have the ability to make some trades to bolster the team. The question is only how high they should aim.
With the Indians open for business, there’s possibly a bigger trade market than previously anticipated.
So would you want the Rays to make a run at acquiring? Let us know in the comments.
