Cleveland Indians fans continue to see Corey Kluber attached to several teams in trade rumors, but there is no traction to any trade just yet.
The Corey Kluber trade rumors have been around since the offseason began and aren’t going away anytime soon.
That is just the reality of following the Cleveland Indians.
Here is the latest on the Kluber situation:
And when it comes to the Reds:
So not much to get too worried about here. As Jon Morosi explains, the Indians are thorough in trade talks. The front office is going to take in all the offers out there and likely weigh the pros and cons of making such a move.
This is better than some professional sports teams who seemingly make major trades without much thought. Almost like what the Cavaliers have done in the recent past.
The Kluber rumors will continue to come out and I wouldn’t be surprised to see some more Trevor Bauer rumors as well. But the team has cut enough money to where a trade isn’t necessary. But if both Kluber and Bauer are kept, that extra money needs to be spent on some players who can contribute right away.
The same goes for if a trade is indeed made. The Indians need people ready to play in 2019. This competitive run won’t last forever and Indians fans want to see the team legitimately compete for a World Series.
The tweets about Kluber rumors used to get me worked up. Now I just accept them as part of our daily life this offseason. I’ll get worried when there are some legitimate, in-depth talks being reported.
