    Eh i'm just cautious about being optimistic, I thought "next year was the year" after 05 and 07, expected at least a playoff showing after 13 as well, that didnt work out too well. I hope they prove me wrong but i'm not holding my breath about it. Getting back to the playoffs is the hard part.

    Things do look good in the pitching department and I don't think the rest of the division is very strong (though I can see KC bouncing back) so they do have that going for them if they can avoid injuries on the mound.

    As @LordJeffBuck mentioned in the 2016 Indians thread, it will be interesting to see what they do with Gomes and his contract. I just do not see any buyers for him at the price that he is making.. It probably will be a good idea to keep both Perez and Gomes in case one, or both, get hurt.

    If Gomes is never the same defensively to go along with awful offensive play we are stuck with a wasted roster spot, unless they bite the bullet and cut him loose at some point. I doubt right now they will find anyone willing to take him, unless he's basically given away.

    Declined the 2017 option on Coco. Not sure how I feel about that.

    EDIT: If they can re-sign him for less, that's a good move.

    I dunno if he fits in the plans for next year (And hey, most likely you can pick him up again if you need him as a waiver for a bag of chips and a fungo)

    At any rate...

    Picked up the option on Santana.

    Thinking about making the 17.5 mill qualifying offer on Napoli (draft choice preservation, also, since he hit all his incentives he got 10 mill last year plus the 7 mill they paid for what's his balls from Atlanta to go away that they needed to do to get rid of Brohio and Bourn, its really not a budget add if he accepts it.)

    Brantley can apparently begin Baseball activities of some kind in December... hopefully the timing is such that they can get a good feel for where he is.

    And I think they'll have a talk with Rajai about coming back as well.

    Eh, not sure how much CoCo has left in the tank. He's 36 and hit .231 last year and is probably considered a defensive liability these days
