It’s time to extend Corey Kluber long-term

Cleveland Indians pitcher Corey Kluber makes about minimum wage when it comes to paying Major League Baseball players. That’s great for the Tribe now, but soon it will cost the team a lot more, possibly to the point where he couldn’t be afforded, unless action is taken sooner than later. The Indians certainly don’t have to sign pitcher Corey Kluber to a long-term contract...
