    Unless I'm missing something, I can't believe that's the best deal Cleveland could have had.

    On the plus side...the new stadium in Arlington caught on fire yesterday. Maybe they'll get to play a couple of games in Tampa.

    It struck me as really paltry too. DeShields, Jr. hasn't run much at the big leagues beyond his mouth and the odd stolen base here and there. I don't think he's broken 2.0 WAR yet for a season. Clase is a 21 yr old reliever with OK stuff. Hard to tell, as little experience as the guy has.

    You'd think the Astros could have made a more competitive offer, if this was all it was going to take. That or Kluber isn't recovering as expected and this was all the Indians could get. Kluber was a top 10 vote getter for the Cy Young, not that long ago.

    Indians: Give us 2 top ten prospects
    Angels: No
    Indians: Fine, we'll take Delino & Santa Clase from Arlington
