C.C. had his promised "one time only" discussion with reporters on his decision to table contract negotiations. It's reported here.
He recalls what a distraction the negotiations were on his extension that he signed on 4/27/05. Because of a strained oblique - he started only two games in that distracted state going 1-0 (12.2IP/10H/2R/2ER/3BB/12K).
Ascribing to the philosophy that ignorance is bliss, he's told his agents not to even tell him if the Indians up their offer during the season.
