After seven seasons with the Indians, it appears that Roberto Hernandez (Carmona) will not be back again. After a wild off-season that saw his true identity revealed, and a mostly down 2012 when he finally did appear in some games, Hernandez is reportedly close to signing with the Tampa Bay Rays. #Rays close to signing RHP Roberto Hernandez (former Fausto Carmona). Depth for rotation or pen — Marc Topkin (@TBTimes_Rays) December 12, 2012 Hernandez had some moments with the Tribe and gave fans a spectacular 2007 that he was never able to live up to in subsequent years. He battled control issues despite having pretty spectacular movement the entire time. In the end Hernandez lost 69 times compared to 53 wins in his seven seasons. He started 153 games and pitched nearly 1000 innings. It will be interesting to see what kind of career Hernandez is able to create for himself from this point forward. Will it be in the rotation or will he go back to his roots as a rookie and hit the bullpen? One thing’s for sure, it won’t be in Cleveland anymore.

The Indians need at least one corner outfielder after dealing right-fielder Shin...

Antonetti Pulls Off A Coup For Choo

To quote the great Nick Gilbert…. “What’s Not To Love?” I have killed Chris Antonetti time and time again for his head scratching roster decisions, but none of those will be mentioned in this piece.

Choo On This Big Red Trade

Shin-Soo Choo makes the Reds lineup look pretty. No more will they have to search for a lead-off hitter with a solid OBP. I do feel bad for the guy in charge of explaining to Dusty why Choo's OBP should be coveted and they shouldn't mourn the loss of Stubbs. "Oh bee pees are fine and dandy...If you're a dandy. I play a man's game where hitters swing the bat...

Hot Stove Thoughts-Royals-Rays Deal

It's a deal that could change the focus of both franchises. The Royals and Rays shook up their franchises with a deal that involved 6 players and one to be named later.
