AROUND THE WEB:

— During an appearance in the Indians’ radio broadcast booth during a spring training game on Saturday, the son of the team’s general manager, Mike Chernoff, accidentally revealed some inside information about Francisco Lindor’s contract.

When Indians play-by-play announcer Tom Hamilton asked six year-old Brody Chernoff which players his dad is working to get, Brody gave a very honest answer.

“He’s trying to, um, get Lindor to play for seven more years,” Brody blurted.

“OK. We better not talk anymore Brody. There you have it folks, we’ve finally had a scoop on the Indians’ radio network,” Hamilton responded.

So now we know Chernoff is possibly trying to keep the shortstop in Cleveland with a seven-year contract extension. Of course, it’s possible Brody misspoke but this is very specific information that likely has some truth to it.

The Indians posted the audio in the tweet above but neither confirmed nor denied Brody’s comment.

— Roger Goodell has issued a letter to Oakland’s mayor criticizing the city’s proposal for stadium plans to keep the Raiders in Oakland.

The letter, sent to Oakland mayor Libby Shaaf late on Friday, addressed the city’s proposal for a $1.3 million mixed-use stadium on the site of the Oakland Coliseum.

Goodell wrote that the proposal “confirms that key issues that we have identified as threshold considerations are simply not resolvable in the short term. In that respect, the information sent today does not present a proposal that is clear and specific, actionable in a reasonable timeframe, and free of major contingencies.”

“At this date, there remains no clear proposal regarding the site, how it will be developed, the nature of the participation by Fortress [Investment Group] or other parties, or what approvals are in place for development,” Goodell went on. “In addition, the long-term nature of the commitment to the A’s remains a significant complication and the resolution of that issue remains unknown. Other significant uncertainties, which we have previously identified, remain unaddressed.”

Team owners have expressed the same opinion recently and hoped the Raiders organization could come up with a stadium deal in Oakland, which is a better market than Las Vegas. NFL Network reported most owners believe no deal will be made and the team will move to Las Vegas.

The city’s plan, or lack thereof, is likely to be a key issue in this week’s meetings of owners, general managers and coaches.

“All of these efforts, ours and yours, have not yet identified a viable solution,” Goodell also wrote. “At our upcoming meeting, the clubs will consider the Raiders’ application to move to Las Vegas. A key part of that discussion will be a thorough review of our collective efforts in Oakland.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “When he’s first ready. I would hope that would still happen in spring training. His play and availability at first is one of the keys to how our roster can function at its best. But until he’s ready to go out there, I can’t put him on the field.” — John Farrell, on when Hanley Ramirez will be ready to return to first base after a shoulder injury
