Tribe Happenings: There is a lot of blame to pass around

Some news, notes and thoughts from my Indians notebook… So who is to blame? The Indians went into Detroit this past weekend and were swept out of the Motor City. They played hard and were setup to win two games late, but due to the timely heroics once again from Tigers hitters they lost both games in excruciating fashion. The hangover from that sweep carried over into Monday night’s...

Can Corey Kluber win the AL Cy Young?

Having the luxury of watching Corey Kluber pitch on a weekly basis has been one of the few fortunate occurrences of the 2014 MLB season. Kluber has endeared himself to Cleveland on the mound (where he’s been nearly unhittable) and off of it where he spearheads memes about teammates (Scott Atchison is so old…). And while Kluber has shown Cy Young qualities throughout the season...

Two Out Hits Not Enough as Houston Shuts Down Tribe; Astros 3, Indians 1

Two out hits are the kind of thing a team needs to be successful, but not only two out hits. That was the case for the Indians on Monday evening in Houston, as they managed to register just seven hits in the game, all with two outs. Collin McHugh scattered five hits over six and two-third innings to best the Indians Zach McAllister and give the Astros a 3-1 victory. McHugh allowed...

Initial Analysis Of The Indians 2014 Draft Picks

It has only been three months since the Indians picks in the 2014 amateur draft were selected and even less time since they signed and joined their minor league squads, but already some have stood out. While the best performers were generally those taken at the top of the draft, there have been a few who made a name for themselves despite being taken after more than 500 players...

A Season of Missed Opportunities

After an exciting, but ultimately disappointing, end to the 2013 season that thrust the Cleveland Indians back into the playoffs for the first time since 2007, there were lofty expectations on the team heading into 2014. The team that ripped off ten straight wins to wrap up an incredible month of September last year was nearly identical to the squad set to take the field this season...

Terry Francona Has Questionable Taste

That sound you heard Saturday night was me losing respect for Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona. Tito: “It probably doesnt speak to my maturity but I really like the Zooperstars. I love them. Harry Canary. Clammy Sosa. I love those guys” — Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) September 13, 2014 I mean, it’s one thing to think it…but for the two-time World Series-winning...

9/13: Shaw Blows Season

Player of the Game Michael Brantley took a note from Carlos Santana with a two run home run to right in the first inning that gave the Indians the early lead. He added another hit in the eight with a single, but it was the home run that provided the majority of the Indians scoring.

Jose Ramirez, Francisco Lindor, and a Nice Problem to Have

It seems like top up-the-middle prospects like Francisco Lindor don’t come around very often. It seems like you can’t get enough shortstop prospects, especially if you run the Cubs. It seems like a building team like the Indians shouldn’t trade their top prospect. It seems like a team like that should hold on to their […]

Young Team Giving Good Reasons to Watch Amid Fading Postseason Hopes

The Indians entered this week with postseason hopes still a reality. Then the team suffered back-to-back defeats at home, that were disappointing on multiple levels. A 12-3 trouncing at the hands of baseball’s best team, the Angels, followed by 4-3 loss to one of the game’s worst in the Twins put the Tribe’s postseason hopes on life support. The Tigers or Royals will have...

Stash-less Indians sweep doubleheader

Monday night’s horrible 4-2 loss to the Minnesota Twins put added pressure on your Cleveland Indians. We know it and so do the players. Said Michael Bourn less than 48 hours ago: “We know what’s at stake. We need to win games like that to stay in the standings. The more we lose, the more we fall behind. We put ourself in a deeper hole.” The Wednesday night rainout was actually...

Oh, Dickerson, We Hardly Knew Ye

As mentioned in the post game report last night, the Indians have demoted Chris Dickerson in what was a very oddly timed move. Dickerson was originally purchased from the Tigers in July to help with outfield depth after injuries to Michael Bourn and Nyjer Morgan really thinned things out. When he initially joined the club, it seemed like he would never cool down, starting out with...
