Comeback propels LA to the NL pennant and a matchup versus the Rays.
From Mandy Bell:
The financial losses that each team suffered this year due to the coronavirus pandemic makes it challenging to predict what this offseason could look like. Whether the Indians are able to find the right deal to move Francisco Lindor or not, he’ll certainly be on the market.
It would’ve been difficult enough for Cleveland to move Lindor with just one year of control remaining until he hits free agency. Adding in the pandemic and his rare inconsistent season at the plate will bring even more hurdles to overcome for the Indians to receive the ideal return package. But because he’ll likely earn around $20 million for the 2021 season (remember, the Tribe will be looking for ways to cut payroll) and the likelihood of an extension waning, it still seems more likely that Lindor will be moved over the winter.
Hoynsie spins another gem.
