Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.com is reporting what we’ve all known for a while, but the Indians are finally admittting-
“The Indians, resigned to the idea that they won’t be able to sign star outfielder Shin-Soo Choo to a contract extension, will listen again to trade offers for Choo this winter.
Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said they have tried to extend Choo “multiple times” over the past few years, to no avail. Antonetti was asked how much reception he’s gotten to the possibility of a multiyear deal, and the GM answered candidly, “None.”
And what will the Indians get for Choo? If history repeats itself, not much.
