IF the entire season gets cancelled does that mean Donaldson could win back to back Comeback Player of the Year awards in 2021?

13. Bob Horner.

That dude had some quick wrists and strong hands(Ted Turner offered to pay him $50,000 to wrestle for WCW one year). Too bad injuries and an early retirement sabotaged a 500 HR career.

A measure of the rabbit ball: Donaldson's OPS+ last year was 127, same as it was in 2014.

The Indians traded Trevor Bauer because he was about to get expensive. They traded Kluber, who is under contract for two more seasons at a relatively low salary, for Delino DeShields Jr. and a prospect reliever with a power arm. They are shopping Lindor actively this off season. They have set an asking price for Clevinger with at least one team.

That makes no sense to me. I see no evidence to support it.

The Indians have decided they aren't trying next year. Lindor will be gone at the AS Break when he reaches peak value. The White Sox are the team on the rise.  The Twins are in their window.  The Tigers and Royals are in full rebuild mode.  The Indians will be in full rebuild in a year.  Clevinger will go.  Jose Ramirez too.

Says to me that the Indians better pony up for a certain outfielder who played for the tigers and cubs last season.  Or get left in the twins dust.
