Fausto locked up

Just heard the news that Indians pitcher Fausto Carmona has signed a guaranteed contract through 2011, with club options for 2012, 2013, and 2014. This is outstanding news for all Cleveland fans. He will be the new ace of this staff when Sabathia inevitably leaves for free agency after this season. At only 24 the future is very bright for Fausto and I couldn't be happier for him.

My wife teaches ESL (English as a Second Language) and had a chance to meet some of the young Tribe players in Lake County for A ball a few years back. I remember her telling me about a nice young kid named Fausto trying to learn the English language. So we've always held a special spot for him and we were elated when he became a star last year. We are excited to have you here long-term Fausto!
