Stark on Jake, Fausto: They've consistently told everyone who has called they don't have to move dollars, and they don't have to move either Carmona or Jake Westbrook. So neither is going anywhere unless it's a "compelling" deal. "[Fausto's] been really good in my looks at him," one scout said. "The way he's pitching, I really think he's back, and he could be a good No. 3 starter on a good club." ... "But what they have to think about is how hard it would have been to move him eight to 10 months ago, versus where he is now," one executive said. "At least now they'd be selling high. And there's always some merit to doing that." ["And for that comment, I am an idiot. The Reds should trade Scott Rolen for Edwin Encarnacion just because that deal didn't look so good last year."] It's very conceivable the Indians could drop their poker face by sometime next week. But what's a lock is this: They won't move both Carmona and Westbrook. They've made it clear it will be one or the other. ESPN
