The truck has arrived in Goodyear, Arizona, and the Cleveland Indians have made an under the trade move to help aid their bullpen for the 2019 season.

Well now that national hangover day is over, we can get back to writing about the Cleveland Indians! We are officially less than three weeks away from Spring Training and I am PUMPED. We’ve reached the point in the offseason where football is over and we can prep ourselves for baseball.

If you’re a fan of unpopular opinions, Cleveland.com is here to tell you that the Indians should trade Corey Kluber. I know the fanbase is torn on this topic. One of own wrote a little something on this as well.

This article points out holes in the Tribe roster that could be filled with a Kluber trade. I’m sure the front office has thought of this. But considering that they have been listening to offers all season and haven’t bitten on one, I would assume no offer was good enough to improve the roster.

Hey, we’ve got some actual team news to talk about now. The Tribe struck themselves a deal with the Miami Marlins that saw them making an interesting addition to the bullpen. Nick Wittgrean had himself a 2.94 ERA along with some strong success against both lefties in righties.

I said we had some news, but not enough to fill a whole news rundown. So instead let’s talk mascots. An interesting piece on Relish, who was called up for a brief stint in the hot dog race. This coming of course after Ketchup was sidelined with soggy buns. So the guys from Let’s Go Tribe talk about how Ricky Relish has dropped off since making it to the big leagues.

That will do it for today. The excitement is starting to build knowing that baseball is that much closer. Stay tuned for more Indians content as Spring Training draws closer.
