The Disappointment Zone

Musings from a Cleveland sports fan

Who’s a big winner?

Posted by disappointmentzone on 2 August 2006

The Indians! Or so says scribe Jon Heyman, who listed the Indians as one of 10 winners this trade season. Said Heyman:

GM Mark Shapiro can conduct a clinic on how to stage a selloff. Unlike some of the other sellers and should-be sellers, he found new homes for everyone in the last year of their contract who couldn’t clear waivers. Nice work.

Fox Sports writer Ken Rosenthal doesn’t share Heyman’s enthusiam, but does rate the Indians as Honorable Mention for their trades this season. He writes:

A disappointing season prompted five trades that netted the Indians with a number of interesting prospects, including infielder Asdrubal Cabrera and outfielder Shin-Soo Choo in separate deals with the Mariners.
