Happy February, everyone!
Other teams will have to wow the Indians if they are hoping to get Corey Kluber before Spring Training begins. At this point, the Tribe really has no need to move Kluber, so it would take a king’s ransom to move the 2-time Cy Young winner.
Don’t expect any big moves from the Indians before the season begins. Instead, look for the Indians to employ the classic method of “throw everything at the wall and see who sticks” in order to construct their roster.
*sigh* Please start soon, season.

- Nolan Arenado got a huge 1-year deal from the Colorado Rockies to avoid arbitration.

- There won’t be grass in the new stadium in Texas.
