TJ Zuppe joined Andy and Les to break down the Indians trades and the winter meetings. He talked about the timeline of the trade coming to fruition and what it means for the team. He says the deals allow them to potentially not trade a starter, though he still thinks they will, but the point is not to have to trade Kluber or Bauer. He also talked about what the Indians got in Jake Bauers. He also discussed Corey Kluber and Trevor Bauer's relationship and whether they can "coexist."
