Found two interesting articles today about direction. One stated that with 5 clubs already all in (Yankees, Red Sox, Indians, Astros, Angels, and maybe even the Mariners ). There was the comment that most of the rest of the American league should be sellers as best expectation would a wild card spot and a quick exit.
The second article was in the Tampa Bay newspaper today and suggested the Ray's should do a total rebuild. That means all players with value should be traded. Twins should be willing to trade prospects for some of Tampa Bay controlled assets, starting with asking what Archer would cost. Most of these deals will take place in the next few days, so let's get started.

Many teams are looking at the relief pitching market.Doubt there will be any bargins until you hit the suspect pile.  

Noted one article suggested Kinzler's wife wants him to sign with Arizona, so that team may get a hometown discount.But most of the relievers will not be cheap.Let's not sit here and 3 days from now have to make panic signings because no one has accepted an offer.Make your moves now toward the top of the pile, and start to play with the big dogs.

I think there is some merit to that argument. We should take advantage of our window as the window begins to close for Cleveland. 

And before the Might Whiteys graduate their recent prospect acquisitions.
