Jim Ingraham: Big contracts have been bad luck for Cleveland Indians

The Nick Swisher situation is so Indians. It's so Indians we probably should have anticipated it coming, if not actually seen it coming. Either way, now it's here - and Swisher is not. Swisher this week had surgery on not one but both of his knees. That means not one, but two rehabs. The surgery - surgeries? - are season-ending surgeries for Swisher.
