The Times reported earlier today that the Dodgers are pursuing a trade for Bradley, and the parts acquired for Romano and Cabrera may be bait.
So, what do the Indians need?There's talk on the Dodger boards that David Ross might be out of tonight's game for a reason. I don't doubt that the M's have more arms to deal, but it's not insignificant that the Dodgers elected to use a moment of weakness to strip them of a pair of interesting options at a crucial moment.
1. A frontline, major league ready starter.
2. Offensive middle infielders.
3. Catching depth.
Update: or not. Ross got some swings in; it made no sense to me that they'd lose the only operable backup catcher they had with Hundley starting the year on the DL.
