Cleveland always has a fire sale if they are not in contention. Getting rid of any player they can build around (Since they said their are in a building from within phase). Putting a AAA team on the field with no vets for guidance wont get you far. They needed the hard throwing Right Hander Perez that they got from us, but it doesnt really fill their glaring needs for the future.
Either way, i am happy! Just glad we gave up Perez instead of Motte. I think Motte has more upside to him, and much more moldable. Perez could throw the heat, but not with sure accuracy.
