MLB Trade Rumors: Indians Manager Acta Says They Need Some Help

It has long been rumored that the Cleveland Indians would be buyers at this year's July 31 trade deadline. Manager Manny Acta amusingly addressed this with a shopping analogy on Monday, via Justin Albers of MLB.com.

"Everybody needs something," Acta said. "But it's not like going to the store and grabbing a can of tomato sauce. You have your necessities, but sometimes they're not there for you. It takes two to tango. I think we do need some help."

While Acta is right that making trades is easier said than done, it'd be a good idea to keep your eye on the Indians as they approach the deadline. They could be looking for help in the outfield and some additional hitting.

Cleveland is second in the American League Central, one and a half games back of the Chicago White Sox.
