In the winter of 2017, the Indians signed Yonder Alonso coming off a career year to replace the exiting Carlos Santana. Just a year later the Indians have returned to stasis with Santana in the fold as well as Jake Bauers and Bobby Bradley waiting in the wings; Yonder Alonso became an $8 million afterthought.
You can reason that Gomes’ value will only diminish, which is fair, but sending him off for a duo that may or may not help you win next season leaves more questions than answers.
The 2018 Cleveland Indians were a fatally flawed team with multiple known areas of weakness being exposed greatly during the ALDS against the Houston Astros. If the Tribe is to compete for a World Series in 2019, they will have to improve. To do so, they must make a bold move.
The 2018 Cleveland Indians might be the team to break the 70 year championship drought, so here is everything you need to know about them.
Yonder Alonso and Carlos Santana will be forever linked, as the former was signed to replace the latter. Does comparing them do justice to the “cost per win” argument?

Yonder Alonso has been almost equal parts good and bad in his first season with Cleveland. Can he continue to be useful but disappointing?

Yandy Diaz, Francisco Mejia, and Greg Allen get more hype about contributing to the 2018 Cleveland Indians, but what if they need a power-hitting first baseman? Well, the Tribe farm system has just what they need there too.
