Every time I hear Fausto Carmona referred to as Roberto Hernandez, I immediately think of the the former two-time All-Star journeyman closer who battled the great Tribe teams of the 90's as a member of the White Sox. That Roberto Hernandez had a brief stint with the Tribe during the 2007 season, making 28 unremarkable appearances. He also overlapped time with Fausto Carmona (nee Roberto Hernandez Heredia), who was in the midst of a Cy Young contending season with the Tribe. Jon Heyman of CBS ran into the retired closer this week and fired off a tweet about their overlapping time with the Indians:
