I have had this feeling for a while. I think the Tribe missed the boat by not trading Corey Kluber last offseason.
Something is definitely wrong with him. He is now 33 years old. His velo is off - consistently and significantly. When he misses, it is no longer off the plate edges - it is right down the middle of the plate. And it gets hit. Hard. And repeatedly. Either there is a lingering injury we have not been told about - or simply Father Time is catching up with Corey.
Trouble is, now everyone has seen his struggles at the end of last season, and into this season. You are kidding yourselves if you think that has not dinged his trade value.
Time for a changing of the guard. Trevor Bauer is your new top of the rotation guy.
