Tribe Weekend Recap: Masterson’s ill-timed stinker, the Carrasco conundrum, Asdrubal’s impatience, and roster decisions

The Cleveland Indians took two of three from the San Diego Padres and headed to Chicago for a four-game set with the team they owned last year, the White Sox. A 17-2 season-series was never going to happen again, especially with the off-season improvements the South Siders have made. We saw a lot of that this weekend with Adam Eaton and Jose Abreu looking like potential thorns in...

The Tribe sent their ace, Justin Masterson to the mound in game three and he was rocked for 7 hits and 6 runs in the 3-2/3′s he pitched. Masterson and the Indians were unable to get a long term deal done before the start of the 2014 season. The Indians refused to come to terms with a deal that...

Rotation'€™s struggles continue with uncharacteristic outing by Masterson

Six games into the season, the Cleveland Indians are 3-3, but the rotation is still searching for its first win. Many thought it would have happened on Sunday when staff ace Justin Masterson took the hill to face the Twins in the finale of a weekend series. Instead, the right-hander had his worst outing in nearly two years. In 3 2/3 innings of the 10-7 loss to Minnesota, Masterson...

Masterson vs. Nolasco in Indians-Twins finale

Masterson set to start Indians' opener

OAKLAND -- After having one of the best springs for a pitcher, Justin Masterson is hoping that carries into the regular season. For the third straight year, the right-hander will take the hill in the Indians' opener. The past two years Masterson's foe has been Toronto. Tonight it is Oakland in an opening series that matches two teams that made the postseason last year. "...

Justin Masterson’s offer might be fair, but that doesn’t make it good: The Diff

It’s a popular opinion to dislike the Dolan family for their ownership of the Cleveland Indians. Ever since purchasing the team in 2000, they’ve been characterized as cheapskates unable to consistently afford to compete in the non-salary cap landscape of Major League Baseball. Last night’s news that Justin Masterson negotiations have ended for the spring certainly didn’t...

Rumored details of Justin Masterson’s contract proposal to the Indians

Justin Masterson has been pitching very well this Spring so far, but the club still hasn’t worked out a long-term deal with their best pitcher. The debates rage on whether Masterson is a “true number one” starter, but it matters little in a sport where Homer Bailey cashes in big time to the tune of $105 million for six years. It seems it might be even easier than that anyway...
