CBS just reported that the Tribe and Dodgers are working on a deal for Dee Gordon. Presumably, Gordon would replace Cabrera. Does that mean the Indians are that much closer to dealing Cabrera?

As a Tribe fan, I've got to say I am pleasantly surprised and pleased that our cheap owner is willing to spend. Today alone the Indians have been tied in rumors to the following players:

Trevor Bauer
Tyler Skaggs
Mike Olt
Nick Swisher
Kevin Youkilis
Jason Bay (lost out on him)
Dee Gordon

Did I miss anyone? At least they are trying. One or two of these have got to go through sooner or later.

I hope the Indians are able to make a move but whenever you add 3rd or 4th teams into any trade the odds of getting it done are slim to none.

Im glad to see that we are being agressive. We have been in talks with about 8 different solid players today. We have been smart about who to not get carried away with though (Bay, Victorino) which i like

Not to mention the fact that any time deals like this get made public so soon, they fall apart. I don't see a three or four team deal happening, but the Indians and Diamonbacks both have some expendables. Make it happen, Anto!

The most confusing part is the Royals being in the trade. They are looking for a SP and of the rumored teams involved, the MLB SP's rumored to be on the block are Shields, Masterson, Holland, and Jimenez. The only one that makes any sense for the Royals at this point is Shields and I cant see Myers involved for any of those 4. And there are rumors that the Rangers really want Upton and would be apart of this trade. So we're talking a 5 team trade. That only happens in the NBA and thats because of the salary cap.

LOL, just saw that the Royals are willing to deal Myers in a deal for Shields. Also that the M's are involved too.

M's are in it for Hamilton. If Upton goes to Texas there is no need for Hamilton, fallback plan=Seattle

I hope we get Shields for Myers if we get a little more in the deal.
