If it happens, I'm sure people will somehow blame Kenny.

He should go to a Cavs game and root for the Knicks.

Anyone that didn't expect the Indians to sign Big Boy to a long term deal is insane. This is what good teams do, they sign their homegrown players that perform to long term deals.

Come on CC don't you want to test the free agent market? There has to be some team out west that will give you a record setting deal, preferably one from the NL.

That's why the Indians signed Manny Ramirez and Jim Thome to long-term deals, right?

There is nothing in that article that indicates the parties are anywhere close to agreeing on a long-term deal. Sure the Indians would love to extend his deal - that's not a surprise to anyone. The question is whether they have the payroll flexibility and willingness to commit $20MM/year to a single player and whether C.C. would take anything less than 5 years/$100 million. I just don't see either party doing that. My guess is that C.C. is looking for Zito money and at least a 5-6 year commitment.

Hopefully he leaves the AL Central as Johan will.

Or that they both somehow make it into the Sox rotation.

During last year it was believed that they would only sign Hafner or Sabathia and they ended up giving Hafner Burly kind of money. Almost all the Jndians fans I run into think that Sabathia will be gone for prospects by the trade deadline at best. However, they haven't made any significant moves to improve the club and they are coming off of pretty successful season so they should have enough money to spend on him without going broke, the question is will they do it. It appears they have. Mr. Choke fits here in Cleveland.

Thank you. His horrible postseason cost them the WS, and maybe the title.

Actually, it really isn't all that insane. The Indians don't spend a lot of money, and Sabathia will get A LOT of money. Even if his numbers are similar to Buehrle's, we got Buehrle at a discount and Sabathia has a Cy Young under his belt.

BTW, talking doesn't mean anything is going to happen. Hopefully this goes well into the season and distracts him.
