An argument to make a trade

After a slow start in the Carolina League, Rodriguez has started to come alive with the bat with the warmer weather, and after going 5-for-5 on Sunday afternoon, he's now hitting .275/.309/.424. His approach still needs a lot of work, but his kind of overall skill set is a rarity.

I'm developing a deep-seated hatred of the Cleveland Indians. I'm damn sure not the only one. Plenty of Seattle Mariners fans are coming to dread games against the Indians - not because the Indians have the Mariners' number in any meaningful way, but because the Indians have built a track record of devastation. The Indians just keep generating dramatic moments at the Mariners' expense. I resent them for it. Other people resent them for it. Indians fans don't care. Indians fans don't hate the Mariners back. Indians fans are probably rather fond of the Mariners, on account of all the losing.
