Francisco Lindor acted as the true man of the people that he is and hung out with Clevelanders and took interviews left and right during this years All-Star Week in Cleveland. In one interview, Lindor discussed what he thought the Indians should do at the July 31st MLB Trade Deadline. Here’s what Frankie had to say to Channel 3 – WKYC news reporters.
“I believe in my team and what we have in our clubhouse and what we have is good. What we have in the clubhouse is really good,” Lindor answered when asked a question about chasing the first-place Twins. “And we’re going to be adding pieces. I think we should be adding pieces to help us continue the run.”
I mean, you heard it hear folks! We’re buying! I am 100% all for this. I am not ready to give up on winning baseball in our beautiful city of Cleveland just because a few fair weathered fans think we should sell everyone we have and focus on rebuilding with the youth.
This team is good and has a lot of young talent as it is! I’ve been saying this for months, once this Tribe team wakes up the MLB better look out. And folks, the entire month of June for the Indians was like Godzilla waking up from his long slumber and laying waste to Tokyo. Just absolute destruction.
Get rid of Brad Hand? You’re crazy. Trade Trevor Bauer? Nope. Move Francisco Lindor before he leaves us in 2 years? You’re out of your mind. This team is looking to buy some talent! Be on the lookout for the Indians to be eyeing some right handed pitchers and a big power right hander (Jose Abreu?).
Let’s not lose focus though, we have probably one of the most important series of the entire season coming up early next week as we host the first place Twins at home. This is a giant series for the Tribe and one that will truly shape the rest of the season. If we win? holy moly we’re dropping bank on some people at the deadline. If we get swept? We’re going to need to bust butt for the rest of the season and take back the AL Central. This would be hard but not impossible.
The chase for the AL Central, ALCS, and World Series is on folks!
