If possible, indians should make a splash and singing Cespedes or Upton, or at lest Fowler or Desmond. It would be of great help for contention.
The draft pick compensation is killing Fowler. I could see him getting the 3yr $45 mil contract with an opt-out after year 1 IF he didn’t have the draft pick attached to him, but there’s no way anybody with a brain is giving up a pick for Fowler on that contract. That’d be crazy.
The Cardinals should sign Desmond
Fowler should train with someone eho helps him fix his horrendous deffensive instincts (Rickey Henderson?). With that (at least partially) solved, i think it would be a pretty decent figure…
