We Are Back

by scott longert on 07/19/18

I took some time off for a long vacation and tended to some matters that needed attention. I should be back to writing blogs on a regular basis.

I am excited about the Indians trade, getting relievers Brad Hand and Adam Cimber from the Padres in exchange for Francisco Meija. The club badly needed relief help and they got it without losing any key players, Meija could turn out to be a great player, but the bullpen help was critical and hence the trade. If Adam Miller returns healthy the Tribe will have solved all their problems with the relief pitching.

I saw one of the games against the Yankees and was amazed by the play of Jose Ramirez. First he had an RBI single then later homered to right field. With 29 home runs he has a legitimate shot at 50 or possibly setting an Indians record with 53. 
Frankie Lindor has already 85 runs scored and should total about 140-150 for the season. Both these guys are just getting started and are potential Hall of Famers if they keep it up.
