Leo: Turkey Day Clippings
First, I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. I’ll be spending the day with family and I hope you get to do the same.
I’m thankful for many things, especially the Clippers staff and fans. The people who I interact with at the ballpark are, without a doubt, the best part of the job.
* As expected, the Indians re-signed Grady Sizemore. The deal is reportedly one year and $5 million. The Tribe originally declined a $9 million option on Sizemore’s previous contract. Cleveland will remove someone from the 40-man roster next week to officially add Sizemore.
* If you’re doing some “Black Friday shopping”, there is a sale at the Clippers Cargo Shop. ALL MERCHANDISE is 25% off from 9:00am-11:59pm on Friday. Pick up some Clippers gear for the holidays! The store will also be open Saturday, Dec. 3 from 10:00am to 4:00pm.
* Cory Burns has been named to the Topps All Star Team for his work in Double-A. Burns saved 35 games for Akron, a franchise record and the most in Double-A baseball.
* The Indians will unveil some minor uniform changes on Friday.
* Do the Indians have interest in Twins outfielder Jason Kubel? What about after the Sizemore signing?
* Tony Lastoria of “Indians Prospect Insider” has given his thoughts on the recent 40-man moves.
That’s all for now. Have a nice long weekend!
