A transaction! Not a major one, but by the time you’re here hitting “refresh” on Wednesday or Thursday this week, it will seem like front page news:

The Cleveland Indians have signed free agent outfielders Matt Carson and Cedric Hunter to minor league contracts. Both deals include invitations to major league spring training camp.

Carson is 31 and went 15-for-66 with a double and four RBI in 26 games for the Twins last year. Hunter is 24 and spent 2012 in Triple-A for the Cardinals. He had five plate appearances in 2011 for the Padres, though, so there’s that.

Can’t wait to see what else Cleveland does with the Travis Hafner dividend.

    This very well could be the Hafner, Sizemore, Kochman, etc.dividen. By the time, the Dolan’s figure out the raises owed by contract, the amount they have to pay due to arbritration. And other carrying costs this could be it for the Cleveland Indians.

    Dont expect the Dolans to spend money–they have never understood, it takes money to make money.

    It’s so hard to believe that the good times at this park were so long ago. Sigh.
