Why I like the Justin Masterson trade

The Indians made their first deadline move and it was a big one.  They sent right-handed starting pitcher Justin Masterson to the Cardinals for minor league outfielder James Ramsey in a one for one deal. The Cardinals had been chasing big name pitchers, but in the end decided it was better to not pay the premium and rolled the dice on Masterson. Initial reaction was very mixed...

Indians Trade Justin Masterson to Cardinals

The Cleveland Indians have traded right-handed starting pitcher Justin Masterson to the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday afternoon according to multiple reports. Masterson is 4-6 with a 5.51 ERA in 19 starts with the Indians this season. Cleveland and Masterson could not agree on a contract extension during spring training and he has had a very subpar 2014 season. He has been on...

OPS Leagues: A Jose Ramirez Hunch

Which Jose Ramirez am I discussing, you ask? No, not the other eight professional Jose Ramirez's... but the Cleveland Indians stopgap between Asdrubal Cabrera and Francisco Lindor. FranLind has been extremely impressive-- he's already got 2 successful Double-A go-rounds under his belt at 19 and 20 totaling 400+ at-bats (.280+ AVG and 30 SB). While the historical HR/Isolated...

Lindor was promoted to Triple-A Columbus on July 21, and Gonzalez was in Akron the next day.

Carlos Santana named AL Player of the Week

Carlos Santana was feeling it over the last week. So much that there was little question as to who would win the American League Player of the Week. Santana was in a class of his own over the past week. He was the star of an otherwise dull and disappointing road swing for the Indians. Santana put on a one-man hitting clinic. Santana left little doubt in the Player of the Week conversation...

Indians “very willing” to trade Justin Masterson

The Cleveland Indians’ season isn’t going according to plan I wouldn’t say. At the same time when they failed to reach a deal with Masterson and pay him as much money as he wanted to be paid, maybe they knew what they were doing. Masterson has struggled mightily this season – his last under contract with the Indians. Masterson was thought to be seeking $17 million per season...

Slow start behind him, Santana producing with authority

Santana hit a major league-best .556 this past week against the Twins and Royals, going 15 of 27 with six home runs and 10 RBI. Five of the homers came in the four-game series against Kansas City including multi-homer games on Friday...

Ryan Raburn spiked throw results in 'inside-the-park-HR'

In a 0-0 game in the bottom of the 8th inning, Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas hit a lazy fly ball down the left-field line. Raburn slid for it, but the ball bounced off his glove and rolled over to the wall. Moustakas seemed content jogging into second for a stand-up double until Raburn tried to throw the ball, as if he wasn’t bad enough with his glove. It turned...
