Indians interested in Nick Swisher?

5

Because I'm starved for hot stove rumors. Ken Rosenthal says the FO has been checking on available FAs, including Swisher, rather than limiting itself to discussions about trading established players. It's not likely that the Indians will be able to land him, but he is from Parkersburg, WV, which is not far from Ohio, and he respects Terry Francona.

Armchair GM: Guessing at players' salaries for next year, and how much we will spend

The deal is worth about $27 million over 3 years (could be $30 million with a bonus) and includes a mutual option for 2016, according to Jon Heyman.

An article on Justin Masterson

I was surprised and pleased to come home yesterday and see him on the cover of the latest issue of this newsmagazine that I subscribe to. The article's mostly about his faith. Probably not really a topic to discuss very much here, but in case anyone would like to read it, here it is.
