The Indians were always one of the teams rumored to have a strong interest in Bruce.

Alderson took the extraordinary step of publicly hinting at a trade between the two clubs that fell apart just minutes before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, which multiple sources later confirmed involved second baseman Neil Walker.

Unfortunately, when the team that's receiving a player in a trade also has to pay them for the rest of the year, they're less likely to give back better prospects.

Rosenthal reports that the Mets valued savings over the prospects the Yankees were willing to send their way.

In each case however, the Yankees were left empty-handed when the Mets opted to go in a different direction. The Mets, of course, chose the deal that would save them more money.

The unexpected twist in this Bruce trade is that the Yankees reportedly showed a lot of interest in him as well.

Bruce, 30, is hitting.258 with a.524 slugging percentage, 29 home runs and 75 RBIs going into Wednesday.

He could have received an $18 million qualifying offer at the end of this season, but the Mets chose to trade him now. I suppose it's not completely far-fetched that the Yankees didn't like something in his medicals, the same way it's not far-fetched that the Mets preferred full relief of Bruce's salary to partial relief plus whatever prospects the Yankees offered. "This is the most recent example of what has been a consistent track record for them".

YSU does not restrict any student's ability to take part in extracurricular activities as long as they are in good standing with the institution. The Mets wanted to clear Bruce's salary.

"We're really excited to announce the acquisition of Jay Bruce", Indians president Chris Antonetti said in a late-night conference call.

They have already made major moves before the deadline by adding David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle to their bullpen, and they solidified their infield with Todd Frazier. "He's got a good arm".

One thing to keep in mind: the Yankees are pretty annoyed with how the Bruce deal played out.
