How Cleveland landed Eddie Rosario, Cesar Hernandez | cleveland.com

From Paul Hoynes:

In one day the Indians acquired a switch-hitting leadoff hitter, who just so happens to be a Gold Glove winning second baseman, in Hernandez. Rosario gives them a power-hitting left-handed bat who should be their first full-season, regular outfielder since Michael Brantley kissed Cleveland goodbye after the 2018 season.

They did it for $13 million on two one-year deals. Ask any general manager and he’ll tell you there is no such thing as a bad one-year deal. And it required more than a little help from owner Paul Dolan.
