The Orioles are desparate for relief help right now and the Indians were going to lose him anyway, so it doesn't really matter that they got nothing in return. Player of the Game When he's good, he's really good and Justin Masterson was good again tonight. For his second start in a row he threw into the seventh and won the Player of the Game.

Starting Pitching Tells The Story Of The Weekend

The way this Cleveland Indians roster is currently constructed, for them to win and/or be competitive is if their starting pitching keeps them in games. Pitching deep into those games is obviously a welcomed sight. Its as simple as that. This weekend, where the Tribe lost two of three to the Red Sox, the starters were all over the map. On Friday night, Chris Seddon pitched surprisingly...

Jimenez's slump makes his 2013 option look less appealing

Kotchman, Duncan, Hannahan, Marson, Donald, and Lillibridge are not. Carrera might turn out to be. The departed Lopez, Damon, and several relief pitchers were not.
