re: MLB: ONE WEEK!
Yessir. I think it's a lofty overpay from the Cleveland organization (don't think Bourn is worth remotely close to that deal), but I suppose it sets a good tone for future free agents, as well as sending an encouraging message to what is left of their fan base. Swisher, Bourn, Bauer, Stubbs and Mark Reynolds is a rather notable offseason for Cleveland, even though none of those guys are regarded as top graded talent.
The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time.
