Cleveland picks-up Dice-K from the scrap heap

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Indians manager Terry Francona saw Daisuke Matsuzaka at his best during the pitcher's early days with the Red Sox. Now, Cleveland is giving the former phenom a chance to revive his career.

On Sunday, the Indians reached an agreement with Matsuzaka on a Minor League contract, pending the completion of a physical. The Tribe's pitchers and catchers officially reported to camp on Sunday, and physicals are scheduled to take place throughout the day on Monday.

2. The Tribe also signed Jason Giambi to a minor league contract.

I'm really sorry to see him leave the Rockies, but like the whole team, he didn't do much last year.

3. I saw that

Cleveland is a very young team. They need leadership and confidence from someone. I can see their logic behind signing Giambi even if he's washed-up.

6. I'll just him another chance...apparently he was still pitching through a lot of pain

before his surgery...then again, the chance will be brief if it appears he still stinks.

7. FYI Joey ...

Cleveland's instructional league has had pretty good success in turning pitchers' careers around. If it's a matter of confidence or mechanics, not injury, he could contribute. Either that or be good trade fodder.
