The Corner of Carnegie and Ontario finds an ace
Justin Masterson can be an ace? I don't know that the peripherals necessarily match up, but if he continues to throw like he did on Monday, the Indians may have just found the guy that can carry the load for the 2013 Indians in that capacity. Regardless of numbers, Masterson is important to the future of the stability of the rotation. Join Jim Pete at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario as he talks Masterson's future, Mickey Callaway's early brilliance, and the hunt for "Orbanek's fifteen minutes of fame."

Second Thoughts Game #38: Indians 2, Phillies 6
It was just one of those nights. There’s really no other way to describe it. After a two-run single by Michael Brantley in the second inning, the Indians batters did nothing despite having multiple scoring opportunities including a leadoff triple by Asdrubal Cabrera in the seventh inning. Scott Kazmir was okay but the bullpen allowed a few runs late to put the game out of reach. The IBI's Jake Dungan shares his second thoughts on the game...
