Tribe's rotation represents start of progress
CLEVELAND -- The Indians announced their starting rotation Friday, and, well, it's a start.Fausto Carmona is the de facto ace of what many will label a defective starting five. The rotation is rounded out by Justin Masterson, Carlos Carrasco, Mitch Talbot and Josh Tomlin, in no particular order and receiving no particular ovation from a skeptical fan base. Even Tomlin sounded skeptical when told he had nailed down the fifth slot. "I won't believe it until I'm on that mound in Cleveland," he said.
