On Tuesday I return to work at the Closter Borough Hall. Weather was nice sunny and warm Monday with temps in the 80s. I took a nice long walk. A lighter MLB Baseball Schedule on Monday with just 8 games on the schedule. MLB Scores Monday: Games In American League Parks: Cleveland Indians 3 Boston Red Sox 2 A tight game in Cleveland between two teams who have a lot of connections. The two managers: Terry Francona- Indians and John Farrell- Red Sox worked together in Boston when Francona was the Red Sox manager 2004-2011 and Farrell was the Red Sox pitching coach 2007-2010. Grady Sizemore who is now an outfielder for the Red Sox, Sizemore played for the Indians from 2004-2012. In 2009, Justin Masterson the starting pitcher on Monday night, was traded from the Red Sox to the Indians. Stephen Drew made his 2014 debut for the Red Sox Monday night. In the Top of the 1st inning, Red Sox would have a golden opportunity to strike first in the game as the Red Sox had the bases loaded and 2 outs for Jonny Gomes. Go ...
Just finished with Terry Francona on our Pregame show. He's fired up to see Salazar today. Justin Masterson joins me soon
MLB-Shooting down trade rumors. The agent for Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Matt Kemp is denying any notion of his client being traded this off-season. New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman nixed a recently proposed trade of outfielder Brett Gardner to the Cincinnati Reds for second baseman Brandon Phillips. Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona squashed recent rumors of starting pitching staff ace Justin Masterson being on the trade block. Chicago Cubs president Theo Epstein states that pitcher Jeff Samardzija is not available for trade.
“I told him whether he liked it or not, he’s not getting rid of us.” – Terry Francona on RHP Justin Masterson:
Right now I feel sorry for Indians fans. Terry Francona can't win the big game. They got shut out at home? I'm not sayiing you have to win every playoff game but come on. You have to have a sense of urgency when you have one game at home. You can't be satisfied just to get there. His lineup sucked. It caused Asdrubal Cabrera to hit into a double play with the BASES LOADED. If he can't motivate his team to come throigh with the bases loaded he has to go. And starting Salazar when he had Justin Masterson and Ubaldo Jimenez? Why start a pitcher that's going to give up 4 runs. He is just the wrong manager at the wrong time. They should bring back Charlie Manuel or a get a clubhouse leader like Albert Bell or is that Joey Bell
Justin Masterson has been to the postseason twice. Both times as a reliever. Both times under Terry Francona.
Francona, Indians wait for October opponent September 30, 2013 CLEVELAND -- Of the many reasons the Indians won an AL wild-card spot with a stunning September surge, manager Terry Francona joked that it had nothing to do with his final days in Boston. "We stayed away from chicken and beer," he cracked. "That helped." Francona was typically jovial on Monday, a day after Cleveland completed an improbable 10-0 run to finish the regular season and earn its first playoff appearance since 2007. As the Indians await the winner of the Texas-Tampa Bay tiebreaker, a relaxed Francona discussed his team's superb chemistry, resiliency and a roster devoid of superstars but loaded with selfless players. Francona also poked some fun at himself, alluding to the end of the 2011 season when his Red Sox collapsed with a 7-20 record in the last month. Francona guided Boston to two World Series titles, but parted ways after the team's historic fold. Later, the team's clubhouse was characterized as an out-of-control fraternity ...

Spring Training Baseball: Butler homers for KC in 4-1 win over Indians GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Terry Francona named his opening-day starter and then watched the Kansas City Royals thump a couple of Cleveland’s relievers. Billy Butler homered and drove in three runs Tuesday for the unbeaten Royals in a 4-1 win, handing Cleveland its first loss in six spring games. Before the game, Francona told Justin Masterson in the dugout that he would be the Indians’ starting pitcher in Toronto on April 2. Francona didn’t think it was an odd venue to make such an announcement. “I was excited to tell him and didn’t feel like holding it in,” he said. “I just wanted to let Masty get his legs under him. He’s the leader of our staff. We want him to be the leader. I think it’s an honor.” So does Masterson. “I’m happy,” he said. “I was hoping for it.” It will be Masterson’s second season-opening start. A year ago, the 28-year-old struck out 10 over eight innings against the Blue Jays in Clevel ...
Terry Francona has informed Justin Masterson he will be the opening day starter. Right move?
Indians need Masterson, Jimenez to return to top form PHOENIX - It' no secret that for the Indians to contend with the Detroit Tigers for the Central Division title, Justin Masterson and Ubaldo Jimenez cannot repeat their disappointing performances of last season, when they put together a dominating set of negative statistics. Nevertheless, for the second year in a row, Masterson and Jimenez are being counted on to lead the front end of the Tribe's rotation. Why? Because they have live arms and at times have displayed overpowering stuff. It's difficult to give up on young pitchers with potential, even when that potential shows itself only sporadically. If anyone has doubts about manager Terry Francona's... ~SportsMan
