Reported teams interested in Francisco Lindor. NY Mets, NY Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies, St Louis Cardinals and Atlanta Braves. Any guesses as to what would have to be offered in return? Also, Cleveland.com had an article that Carlos Carrasco may be added with Lindor.

Probably think of controllable OF options on all of those teams.

St. Louis- Tyler O'Neill or Harrison Bader
NY Yankees- Clint Frazier
NY Mets- Brandon Nimmo

Atlanta's OF options are all way more valuable than a year of Lindor, and unless the Indians think they can fix Scott Kingery, I'm not sure they have much to offer.

Adding Carrasco would change the game for them quite a bit. Carrasco is only owed 13.5M/ year over the next two (including the buyout) . And he's a very, very good pitcher.

So the acquiring team could get Lindor (and potentially extend him) as well as get two years of a great pitcher on an insane deal?

I'd guess the Indians can also get a couple of elite prospects if they attach Carrasco AND save 47M.

I agree they have ignored or not addressed the OF in at least three years and their lack of offense in the 6-9 positions in the line-ups have been lacking to say the least. Personally don't want to see Carrasco go as he's not only an exceptional pitcher but a great human being that does his job, gives MUCH back to the community without publicity, and certainly is a role model for the younger pitchers and position players. Realizing it's a business too. but I'd hate to see them trade him. Lindor on the other hand should have been dealt before this year. he wants his payday and has earned the opportunity in free agency therefore the FO HAS got to get this move right because as I've said many times---to squander this opportunity with this pitching staff would be a baseball sin, missed opportunity, and insulting to a log suffering LOYAL fanbase.

I didn't know that about Carrasco. That's really cool stuff.

Personally, if I were an Indians fan, or a Cleveland-area native, I'd hate to see him go as well. And perhaps the Indians FO and ownership understand this and realize that his impact on their community is greater than a couple of prospects.

Groshans is listed as a shortstop but on the Blue Jays prospect ratings claim that he's better suited as a 3B. Have read the Tribe is interested in OF Gurriel but that would have to include more in that deal and Groshans doesn't seem to be a shortstop in MLB so if the Indians want a ss he won't be in any deal. They believe they have a ss in the near future so the Jays would have to change if they want Frankie.

Have read articles that the Blue Jays are interested in Lindor which would mean an OF addition. Makes more sense than Ramirez and the Jays would add a switch hitter at the top of the line-up---and bigger might keep him off the Yankees roster.

Ramirez was second in the MVP Voting and has been the Tribe's most consistent offensive player. Talk about 'being on the cusp'. potential and maybes but Ramirez has produced and proven himself.

NOT enough for Ramirez and its a HUGE but. He has a controllable contract and the Indians would not be willing to trade him unless they are made an offer they can't refuse and this ain't that.
