INDIANS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Should the Indians Exercise Aviles’ Option?

The Cleveland Indians will have a few hard decisions to make, regarding personnel and one of the first of these should involve Mike Aviles. Unlike all but one other member of the final 40 man roster for the Indians, Aviles is not officially under contract for the 2015 season. Rather, the super utility man has a single option year left from his contract that he signed shortly after...

Why trading Francisco Lindor would be a bad idea

It has been well documented that over the years the Cleveland Indians have a propensity of drafting more “polished” college players in the first round of the draft, but in 2011 they decided to roll the dice with the number eight overall pick on a prep star out of Florida, shortstop Francisco Lindor. The Tribe passed over former college players and now major leaguers such as...

Is Jason Kipnis just a One Hit Wonder?

Los Del Rio is famous for doing the Macarena and little else. Soft Cell got famous for Tainted Love while Dexys Midnight Runners used Come on Eileen. Right Said Fred told the world that I’m too Sexy and The Baha Men asked Who Let the Dogs Out? Just like all of these other one-hit wonders, Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis just might still be cashing in on his biggest hit—June...

Today In Tribe History: October 18, 1997

The 1997 World Series is underway from Pro Player Stadium in Miami, Florida, where the National League champion Florida Marlins host the Cleveland Indians and defeat them by a 7-4 final.

Player Profile: Carlos Santana

This is the first article in my new series titled, “Player Profiles.” Over the course of the offseason, I’ll be posting articles in this series examining a player’s 2014 season, what to expect from him in 2015, and how his fantasy value changes heading into next year’s fantasy baseball season.

Biggest Holes to Fill in 2015 & a Shovel To Fill Them

With the end of the post-season fast approaching and with it, the advent of free agency and the beginning of the trading season. It is obvious that the Indians need help if they want to be a World Series contender in 2015 and not just a Wild Card contender, although where that help comes from is yet to be decided. As always, super star free agents are likely off the table and while...

Building a Wahoo Winner: Getting Swisher, Bourn back to form

As the winter of 2012 thawed its way into the spring of 2013, so did the Cleveland Indians thaw the previously frozen heart of their organization. The additions of Terry Francona, Michael Bournand Nick Swisher prior to the 2013 season pumped life into a jaded fan-base and brought, if only for a fleeting moment, visions of the ticker tape floating from the sky and onto East 9th...

Early Potential 2015 Indians Line-Up

Placing the 2014 Indians season fully into the rear view mirror, this will be the initial look at next year’s team. While this is likely to change many times throughout the off-season as trades are made and free agents are signed, a starting point is needed to notice any changes that are made. As there is only one player leaving the Indians through free agency and a lesser one...

The 2015 AL Central Winners: Cleveland Indians

I’m getting a little jumpy here, but I’m excited for Cleveland Indians fans for next year. After making the wildcard play-in game last year, the Indians had a a small letdown this year. A good thing that did come out of the 2014 season is the Indians look poised to win the AL Central next year. The Tigers will obviously be the favorites coming into the season, but I would push...

Indians Rumors: Cleveland could trade SS

The Cleveland Indians ended the 2014 season with a record of 85-77, third in the American League Central. The Indians were 11th in runs scored and 14th in team ERA. While a bounce back season from Michael Bourn, who appeared in only 106 games this season, would help, the Indians could also trade a shortstop to bolster the roster.#452112622 / gettyimages.comAs reported by Terry Pluto...
