I imagine if the Indians don’t pick up the Brantley option the Cubs will be all over that. Imagine that guy falls into their lap for cheap. If they keep him propped up for a year or two and there’s a cheap lead off and starting CF/OF solution.

Yeah, he'd be a damn nice addition, but I'd think they pick his option up. If they don't, he becomes a priority though.

And CW11, good call on Nunez. He could fit in very easily.

Additional rule: you have to have one or the other.The only exception is you have an amazing board name. davell, I'm looking at you; put up a [expletive] avatar or something if your name only sounds like somebody tried say Dave as they lapsed into a coma.

There’s a very real shot they don’t pick up the option. $11 million is a lot for the Indians and they have cheaper,
less injured LHH OFs that can play CF. I’m fingers crossed

Núñez is quality, prefer him most out of the IFs named in a scenario they pursue a FA IF.

Tried to make a joke about getting "Dex" from the Cardinals cheap because racist St. Louis.

Autocorrect changed "Dex."

There are some things you don't want to get for cheap in St. Louis.
