2011 Topps Tier One

Carlos Carrasco became the pitcher the Indians always hoped last season. His season splits tell the story:

I have passed on a couple of these cards since they seem to be pretty condition sensitive, but this one popped up and is in great condition…so I jumped.

Alex White.  The best game I ever saw in person was the Reds-Indians in Cleveland on May 20th, 2011.  White was the starter and would only last 3 innings before exiting the game with a finger issue that would knock him out of the majors until August.  The Indians would come back to win…but even with the come from exciting comeback victory, losing White, a promising young starting pitcher, stung.  While recovering fro his injury White would be used, along with Drew Pomeranz and a couple other players, for SP Ubaldo Jimenez.
