Things That Make You Go Hmmmmm.....
We'll talk about the developments with the Indians 40-man on our show which starts in ten minutes.
Edit 9:08pm: The Rangers and Phillies completed a trade tonight that looks like a deal for 40-man purposes. Also, the Reds 40-man has been set. That leaves four teams, the Indians, Dodgers, Mets and Giants yet to finalize or publish their 40-man by the deadline.
Boy, this is strange. Nothing may happen, but it is clear to me the Indians are talking trade. Could be a minor trade to clear roster space, could be something a little bigger. May or may not go down, but I have to believe they are in serious talks on a trade.
Most of the teams in MLB have submitted their 40-man rosters. Only a small handful have yet to post their final rosters, the Indians being one of them.
40's set: Angels, Astros, Braves, Brewers, A's, Blue Jays, Cardinals, Cubs, Diamondbacks, Mariners, Marlins, Nationals, Orioles, Padres, Phillies, Pirates, Rays, Red Sox, Rockies, Royals, Tigers, Twins, White Sox, Yankees.
Not set: Indians, Dodgers, Giants, Mets, Rangers, and Reds.
It may be nothing, but I wonder if there are some potential deals in the works here.
