In baseball news: Justin Masterson, Rick Porcello, Wade Miley. All names we're either familiar with or should soon be familiar with considering these young pitchers have just been added to the Boston Red Sox rotation in what can best be described as a bulky move made to offset the fact that the Red Sox Nation lost pitching ace Jon Lester in an all out bidding war to the Chicago Cubs earlier this week to the tune of six years and $155 million. With the addition of these three young men to our staff, the question remains: do we need an ace in the starting rotation, and if so, who will be the likely candidate? Jeff Samardzija, Cole Hammel or Max Sherzer? With the Front office having made known the fact that they have no interest in Sherzer, that would leave either Samardzija or Hammel. If I were a gambling man, I would place my money on both men and begin molding an already bulging roster into the type of World Series team the Red Sox Nation have become accustomed to seeing in recent years. The talent is the ...
MLBTR predicts Cubs will sign Justin Masterson, Jake Peavy, Russell Martin, and not to forget, Jon Lester.
American League Cy Young The FCB AL CYA candidates that I broke earlier in the week were: Darvish, Hernandez, Holland, Iwakuma, Lester, Masterson, Price, Sale, Sanchez, Scherzer, Shields, and Verlander. That is one hefty haul at 12 pitchers to sift through. So, I will be cutting that list in half immediately. Justin Masterson was very good this year. He led the American League in complete game shutouts, despite throwing his last three games (and starting the playoffs) out of the bullpen. That is where his Cy Young candidacy begins - and ends, unfortunately for him. He's out. David Price only threw 186 2/3 innings. Everyone else remaining (save one) threw more than 200 innings. He's out. Hisashi Iwakuma, Jon Lester, James Shields, and Derek Holland all had K/9 between 7.28 and 7.99, all had BB/9 between 1.72 and 2.83 (Yes, slightly larger difference there...), all had fWARs in the 4s. Not only that, but they all had FIPs in the 3.26 to 3.59 range and xFIPs in the 3.28 to 3.90 range and ERAs in the 2.66 ...
Most of the key members of the Red Sox have playoff experience, so handling what is to come this month won't be unfamiliar to them. But the Red Sox franchise has not won a playoff game since Oct. 18, 2008 when they took Game 6 of the American League Championship Series against the Rays. In the five years since, almost everything has changed. New general manager, new manager (twice), new coaches and almost an entirely new cast of players. Only Jacoby Ellsbury, Jon Lester, David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia are back from the roster that faced the Rays in 2008. Clay Buchholz was not in the postseason that year. Jason Varitek, Tim Wakefield, Mike Lowell, J.D. Drew, Julio Lugo, Alex Cora, Kevin Cash, and Mike Timlin are retired. Guys like Jason Bay, Kevin Youkilis, Manny Delcarmen, and Manny Ramirez might as well be, given the state of their fading careers. Justin Masterson, Coco Crisp, and Jed Lowrie were traded. Jonathan Papelbon left as a free agent. After two World Series titles in a span of four years, playof ...
