The lukewarm stove heated up a bit on Wednesday afternoon. Rumors circulated that the Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox had discussed a deal in the framework of Edwin Encarnacion in exchange for Jackie Bradley Jr. WFNY’s own Joe Gerberry took a dive into that topic yesterday.

Though Bradley Jr. has more upside than Encarnacion from a value perspective, the focal point of the trade seemed to be monetary.

This weekend series was once again another example of what this 2014 Cleveland Indians team is all about.

So naturally the story of the
Within the context of MLB free agency, four years and $48 million sounds about right for 30-year-old Ubaldo Jimenez. Within the context of MLB economics, it probably just was a more palatable deal for the Baltimore Orioles than the Cleveland Indians. You see, even though the Orioles had to sacrifice the No. 17 overall pick1,
