Jon Heyman reported yesterday that the Indians and Brett Myers had reached agreement on a one-year deal. This morning he reports the contract’s value: $7 million. As mentioned last night, the contract includes an option for 2014.

At best: Myers becomes a serviceable starter for the Tribe who, if they don’t contend, would be a pretty appealing trade chit at the deadline. Or, alternatively, Chris Perez gets dealt and Myers could close again.  At worst: he flames out somehow, and still represents a relatively modest outlay for a pitcher in this market.

      I don’t know what your problem is- that’s a perfectly cromulent word.
