Value-obsessed baseball teams do not think like this, but it would be interesting if a Manny Machado suitor traded for his brother-in-law, #Indians 1B Yonder Alonso, who now figures to be highly available. Alonso would amount to a $9M enticement, but who’s counting?
RT @KevinKleps: Since I've gotten quite a few replies on this, this could be a good way to look at the deal from a payroll perspective: 2019: Indians save $3M (EE 20M, CS 17) 2020: Indians add $12.5M (EE 5M buyout, CS 17.5) 2021: Indians add $500K (CS buyout) PLUS, Tribe gets $6M cash at some pt
