Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Indians' offer to Shane Victorino was for four years and $44 million.

He wound up taking one fewer year but $2 million more per season from the Red Sox. While it appears the Tribe didn't get the outfielder they wanted, it does indicate that they have some money to spend if they think the player is the right fit. As far as outfielders go, they've also expressed interest in Justin Upton, Nick Swisher, Jason Bay and Scott Hairston.
