Mike Moustakas needs to be the Cleveland Indians’ top free agent target

Few players have suffered more unjust fates through the last two offseasons than Mike Moustakas. Moustakas watched in the winter of 2017-18 as former teammates Lorenzo Cain and Eric Hosmer signed deals that combined for more than 12 years in term and nearly $225 million in total value.

Despite the fact that Moustakas could hit more home runs out of a black hole than Hosmer could out of a Little League field, the then-Royals third baseman was forced to settle for a one-year, $6.5-million deal that did little else than allow him to remain employed as a baseball player.
