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 ...
Indians, Orioles, Nationals -- all my teams are winners! Sure, it's only a game and just one of many to come but masterful Justin Masterson pitched 7 scoreless innings as the Cleveland Indians beat Oakland last night,the O's topped Grady Sizemore (and the other Red Sox) and the Nats won over the Mets. Surely, one of these teams will be in the World Series.

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 ...
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 ...
Indians CEO Paul Dolan explains his team's thought process following a 68-94 season in 2012 and says that a total rebuild was not an option, Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. "None of us wanted to think about tearing it down. Our goal is to put together a team to win a World Series. Another goal is to avoid 20 years of losing, which some smaller-market teams have endured." The Indians did trade outfielder Shin-Soo Choo, but rather than also dealing veterans like Asdrubal Cabrera, Chris Perez and Justin Masterson, the team spent heavily on free agents like Michael Bourn and Nick Swisher. Here are more notes from Pluto's interview with Dolan. Dolan expresses "a high degree of confidence" in team president Mark Shapiro and GM Chris Antonetti, even though the Indians haven't had a winning season since 2007. Dolan also confims that the Indians offered a four-year, $43MM deal to outfielder Shane Victorino, who ended up going to the Red Sox for three years and $39MM. Dolan says he didn't want t ...
Who am I? I played with Dave Parker, ARod, and Justin Masterson. I played in multiple World Series, but I've never won a game in the postseason. I am a Texan. I have more games played than strikeouts. I once fielded a ball that ended a WS. Here is a hint: - Who am I?
