According to Ken Rosenthal and SI the Indians have signed Michael Bourn to a 4-year $48M deal with a 5th year vesting option based on plate appearances.
This does lead one to seriously consider just how serious Met interest was.
It also does end the torturous speculation, and the team can now focus on what has the potential to be a historically inexpensive and historically non-productive outfield.
Still, this writer is very happy with the offseason overall. Adding two great prospects for Dickey, signing Marcum, and seriously improving bullpen depth are all moves which could lead to a better 2013 season than expected. When adding in the potential arrival of Zack Wheeler, the future seems brighter than it has in years in Queens.
Stay tuned for updates.
