Please Keep Masterson

It's been a long time since a player of Masterson's caliber wanted to stay in Cleveland, Nd I have little doubt he does. Consider Masterson's position, his market is improving, Homer Bailey (a comparable pitcher) just signed a contract worth over $100mm for six years, and he is allowing the Indians to sign him to a three to four year deal. He is surrendering leverage when he is at his strongest. Why would Masterson do this if he did not want to stay? Perhaps it's only because of Tito, maybe he doesn't care about the city or the fans. However, regardless of his inner thoughts, Masterson has handed Antonneti a golden opportunity to extend the anchor of our pitching staff, and keep our core together, for three more years. He should do it. I don't want another 'Victor Martinez crying as he leaves' press conference. Either we believe in our team or we don't. Sign 'em.
