Found December 09, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
Mark Reynolds and the Cleveland Indians have agreed to a one-year deal that will pay Reynolds $6 million, ESPN.com reported Sunday. Reynolds' pay could increase to $7,5 million if he reaches certain incentives, according to the report. The 29-year-old Reynolds, who has played third base and first base, hit .221 with 23 homers and 69 RBIs for the Orioles in 2012. His best season was 2009 with Arizona, when he hit .260 with 44 homers and 102 RBIs. He also set a major-league record by striking out 223 times that year. This move may take the Indians out of contention for Kevin Youkilis.

Mark Shapiro and Chris Antonetti were there, essentially...

The Indians seem to be operating on divergent paths.   On one hand, they’re talking about trading players such as shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, right fielder Shin-Soo Choo and right-hander Justin Masterson.   On the other hand, they made a $44 million offer for free-agent outfielder Shane Victorino, and are now bidding competitively for...

The 1988 Cleveland Indians And The Greatest Question In Bar Trivia History…Ever

This week at Winter Meetings, Ron Washington got a pop quiz. “Four other members of your 1988 club are now current Major League managers, just like you.

The Oncoming Storm: Part Three
