I didn't see this one coming even though the Indians were mildly connected to Bourn.  It's being reported that the Indians have just signed Michael Bourn to a 4 year deal worth $48 million.  That story is right HERE in a Jon Heyman Tweet. 

As DJ Short from Hardball Talk (HERE) writes:

"Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Mets also made a four-year, $48 million offer to Bourn. However, they were informed that it would take an arbitrator two to three weeks to decide whether they would be able to keep their first-round pick. And with spring training approaching, Bourn just wasn’t willing to wait that long, so he took the Indians’ deal."

Now, I was sure that the New York Mets were on the verge of a deal some how, some way, but now Sandy Alderson looks like the last clown at the circus.  Too bad.

So, in addition to this very detailed illustration of Terry Francona and Nick Swisher, it appears they will also draw in Michael Bourn and good for Cleveland...just in time for the start of the season.
