The Major League Baseball trade deadline is eight days away, and the Indians are in a real quandary. Thye've played well enough to contend in the Central Division, but is it all a mirage? The schedule has been soft, and the Tribe haqs won 29 of the last 40. Things get tougher next week, and we just don't know how good the offense really is. You don't trade to get a wild card spot, that's dumb. And the only guys other teams want are Brad Hand (NO) and Trevor Bauer (MAYBE). Bauer has been average, and is probably an $18 million player next year. The Indians are not the AL's best team no matter what they do, but in a 5- or 7-game series who knows? This is what Mike Chernoff and Chris Antonetti get the big $$$ for.
