2009 - Justin Masterson 1-3 6 5 0 0 0 0 28.1 30 18 15 2 17 24 4.76 1.66

Masterson faced off against the Twins a few weeks ago and was hit pretty hard, getting tagged for six runs off hits hits and five (yes, FIVE) walks in less than four innings. In spite of that, Masterson's talent can overpower those middling numbers at any time. He's a strikeout threat, and in his five starts for the Indians (25.1 innings) he's surrendered just a pair of home runs. Masterson also gets a lot of ground balls, which should ideally minimize any damage; the walks off-set that advantage a bit. Patience is a virtue with this guy, so take your time boys.

2009 - Scott Baker 12-7 26 26 1 1 0 0 160.0 152 80 79 23 31 131 4.44 1.14

Baker is a stud, and today we need him to be our stopper. Go get 'em, Tiger Twin.
