... and I haven't seen anything that says he IS going to Cleveland... just that he is "expected" to go. Plenty of rumors and "insider tips" have turned into vapor in the past
This is the case - nothing is confirmed. There are rumors of him to Cleveland but you should expect Rivera will at least try. With that said, given our history with actually getting the guy the fans want, you should prepare yourself for the fact that we will not and start thinking of a backup favorite.
There are reasons for him to go to Cleveland too.
