These ain’t your father’s Cleveland Indians anymore.

After making it to Game 7 of the 2016 World Series, the Indians have upped the ante and signed slugger Edwin Encarnacion to a three-year deal. Tribe broadcaster Jim Rosenhaus talked about this signing with the Ray Horner Morning Show, believing a deal like this “makes sense.”

"There’s a need to go for it, and this certainly gives them that extra boost to take that next step,” said Rosenhaus. The former Blue Jay slugger will most likely play DH, with Carlos Santana moving over to first base full-time. Rosenhaus also talked about his consistency, with Encarnacion having the second-most home runs in the last five seasons.

Will a signing of this magnitude help the attendance? Rosenhaus believes so, not just from the Encarnacion addition, but the long playoff run. He feels the organization senses the momentum will continue, and may see another bump in season ticket sales during the offseason.

AUDIO Jim Rosenhaus Discusses MLB Winter Meetings

The Major League Baseball Winter Meetings are in full swing and some teams are wheeling and dealing, and the Cleveland Indians might be in the process of making some deals themselves.

Tribe broadcaster Jim Rosenhaus joined the Sam Bourquin Show to talk about the annual meetings in Nashville and some of the goings-on there.

One of the major pieces for the Indians when it comes to any sort of deal is what it's going to cost them and what quality starting pitcher they might need to give up in order to get a quality bat in the lineup.

Some of those rumors include the Cincinnati Reds unloading third baseman Todd Frazier, whom both Sam and Jim think would be a key addition if that were to happen.

With winter meetings and Spring Training just a little over 100 days away, the Cleveland Indians are looking to make some important strides into getting where they want to be.

Tribe broadcaster Jim Rosenhaus made an in-studio visit to the Sam Bourquin show to talk about what he feels will get the Indians over the hump.

When asked about how the young kids who came up towards the end of the season, Rosey said they played inspired baseball and finished strong.

"It gives you some hope for next season," Rosenhaus said. "Sometimes it's how you finish a season that doesn't start out as promising and how you battle to finish it out."


 The Indians finished the season 81-80 without making the postseason, a disappointment no doubt, but a building block for future development and growth.

Many people say that when the team unloaded veteran players like Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn, and brought up youngsters like Fransisco Lindor, Abraham Almonte, and Giovanni Urshela, they meshed well with leaders like Michael Brantley and Jason Kipnis.

"I think it wasn't until those players (Bourn and Swisher) left that guys like Michael Brantley and Jason Kipnis took ownership of the team and said 'This is our club,' and they were encouraged to do so by Chris Antonetti and Terry Francona, so that made a big difference," said Jim Rosenhaus.
