Hold up. You're telling me that not only did we have to suffer through Game 7 of the 2016 World Series, but baseball may be gone forever in a few days?!

Okay, so baseball probably will still happen next spring, but the Winter Meetings that are set to occur next week may be put on hold if a new CBA can't be reached between the MLB owners and the MLBPA by the time the current CBA expires on December 1st. Ho boy.

Indians news

  • With strong core, Tribe unlikely to make big moves at Meetings | MLB
    I'm sure the internet will be thrilled that the "Dolanz r cheep" yet again. Thankfully, Cleveland doesn't need to make a huge splash this offseason in order to be in a great position in 2017.
  • Tribe #1 prospect Bradley Zimmer had an impressive stretch in the AFL thus far, that is definitely and not still happening, slashing .257/.421/.514 in 74 plate appearances thus far. He's also struck out 35% of the time, so there's that.
  • No Cyber Monday deals here: A (realistic) Cleveland Indians free agency holiday wish list | Cleveland.com
    The Indians probably won't sign the likes of Dexter Fowler or Ian Desmond, but hey, Michael Bourn and Nick Swisher are available!
