08:11 AM ET 01.02 | The Indians added an arm Wednesday, reaching an agreement with veteran righty Brett Myers on a one-year deal with a club option for 2014. Myers, according to a league source, has a good chance of winning a job in the Indians' suspect rotation. That rotation includes Justin Masterson, Ubaldo Jimenez, Zach McAllister, Trevor Bauer, Carlos Carrasco, Corey Kluber, Jeanmar Gomez and David Huff. Carrasco is coming off Tommy John surgery on his right elbow and Kluber is recovering from knee surgery. Veteran lefty Scott Kazmir will also be in camp on a minor league deal. The Tribe's rotation was a horrid last season, posting the second highest ERA in the American League at 5.25 ERA. Masterson and Jimenez, the top two starters, lost a combined 32 games.

I'm sure Slinky ran out and bought season tickets as a result.

The Tribe and Twinkles are in the same boat, no pitching. So come February if you can walk, run, and throw just a little you will be invited to spring training for a shot to make the big club.

Justin Masterson, Ubaldo Jimenez, Zach McAllister, Trevor Bauer, Carlos Carrasco, Corey Kluber, Jeanmar Gomez, David Huff and Myers..... talk about a deep rotation, too bads it's mostly crap. Bauer the only one of the bunch who might be an ace someday.
