Bob DiBiasio, the Indians senior vice president of public affairs, came on the air this morning to talk about the 9-player, 3-team trade that went down yesterday. The trade sent Shin-Soo Choo to the Reds and Tony Sipp to the Diamondbacks, while the Indians received outfielder Drew Stubbs and top pitching prospect Trevor Bauer. Bob explained why this was a good trade for the Indians, and admitted, even if the trade was bad, he wouldn’t say so.
