    SomeGuy got a reaction from Major League Ready in Kluber to the Rangers?   
    The Indians won 93 games without Kluber while this improves their bullpen (maybe significantly if Clase can harness the Chapman like velocity/spin) and gives them much needed outfield depth. This frees up 17M for this season, Santana probably leaves next offseason freeing up another 20M. The Indians suddenly have some spending money.
     
    I don't think they are rebuilding judging by how they insisted that they get 2020 ready players in return. They probably could have gotten a much better prospect who was further out from being ready. I think they keep Lindor for at least one more season.  It will be interesting to see what happens next. The Indians can compete with this team and some additions are likely. 
     
    "With the way the finances in this deal work," Indians president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti said, "we will have more resources available to re-invest in our team and that's our expectation here as we head on into the rest of the winter is that we will continue to look for avenues to improve our Major League team, both in trades and in free agency."
     
    the team sits just north of $90 million for next season. Last offseason, they decided to open the year with a $119.6 million payroll, which they felt was a more sustainable figure. If that is the sustainable mark, Cleveland now has some wiggle room with its budget and the club has indicated that it isn't just going to sit on the extra $17 million it now has lying around.

    But we got nice starts from the returning Berrios and Odorizzi in games 1 and 3.  Combined 3 earned runs against the best offense.
     
    And our hottest starting pitcher was serving a suspension.

    The A's have 2 guaranteed contracts for 2021 for a combined 22M. If they want to trim payroll for the 2020 season they won't do it with a player making about 580K.
     
    They just trimmed about 11.8M by non tendering 3 players and another 5.8M with the Profar trade.  Do they need to do more? They were already pretty close to last years payroll before this, if anything they can probably add a couple players now.
     
    I don't see them trading a player who was top 10 in MVP votes 2 years in a row when he is on a minimum salary.  Might be a different story for years 2 or 3 of arbitration.  I think he is in Oakland for 2020 and probably 2021 too.

    Giolito only has one other full season to compare last season to. He was drafted 16th overall (called the best pitcher of his draft but had a recent injury) and was once the #3 prospect in MLB. He hasn't been meh his entire career, he just had a minor adjustment period. Ace has always been his projection.
