I can't wait for the announcement that we're picking up his $13M team option.

Nov 2012: The Cleveland Indians have announced today that they have re signed their once promising slugger Travis Hafner to a new two year contract. Even though there were no other teams interested in the oft injured good guy outside of an invite to spring training the Indians signed Hafner to a $7 million gaurantee with incentives that would take him to $13 million.

Mark Shapiro followed up with noting how this type of contract has worked well for them in the past. Because of giving $5 million to Grady Sizemore last year to show up to spring training they were able to get him for the reduced cost this year of only $2.5 million.

Shapiro then noted that a September record of 8200 showed up for Hafner bobble head night.

I've always been here. I just haven't posted much. I've been encouraged by all of the Shapaspaghetti posts.

The ones on the front page of course being the best.

Yeah, the losing streak really brought out the dregs around here.
