Big in Japan

This information has been floating around the Internet the last 24 hours or so, and now it’s officially official: Tom Mastny’s contract has been sold to the Yokohama BayStars of Japan’s Central League, bringing the Indians’ 40-man roster tally down to 38.

 

It comes down to this: Mastny didn’t have a guaranteed job in the bigs with the Indians for next season, and he has a guarantee in Japan. As we’ve seen the last couple years, Eric Wedge didn’t show a great deal of confidence in Mastny, who would often rot away on the bullpen bench.

 

I’m just wondering if Mastny’s Japanese highlights will be shown on the “Super Terrific Happy Hour.”

Unbelievable… They spent how much time waiting for Marte to pan out and nothing. Does this mean we’re not waiting for anything to pan out anymore? Maybe I’m just upset that Blake isn’t coming back :-(
