JUSTIN MASTERSON RUMORS

How Justin Masterson Cost the Indians the Play-Offs

When comparing the 2013 play-off Indians with 2014 team, there have been a surprising number of improvements considering the less successful outcome. Offensively, Michael Brantley, Yan Gomes, Lonnie Chisenhall and Carlos Santana all had better seasons than in 2013, while Jason Kipnis and Michael Bourn put up similar numbers. Cody Allen was significantly better than Chris Perez ever...

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 “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...
