Corey Kluber is a machine. That is all.
I’ll see you an Ian Kinsler and raise you a Jose Altuve.
The Tribe needed multiple wins, but Bryan Shaw had other ideas.
Carlos Santana, TJ House and Corey Kluber lead the Cleveland Indians in a double-header sweep of the Minnesota Twins.
Covering the Tribe on a nightly basis is a labor of love for me. But I also have a real job that from time to time keeps me away from the team I love the most. In these instances, readers of WFNY know they can usually count on a Jon Steiner special when I am
The Cleveland Indians now sit four games back of the second AL Wild Card spot.
The Tribe’s starting rotation continues to carry them into the final few weeks of the regular season.
After battling back, the Indians let another one slip away.
Danny Salazar gives the Indians a much-needed lift against the Tigers. We live-blogged it.
Carlos Carrasco makes history, but it’s not enough for the Tribe. We live blog the loss.
They are back. They are right in the thick of it. And they aren’t going anywhere. Your Cleveland Indians, left for dead by almost everyone, continue to win and are surging into September.
No matter how many times you want to bury the Tribe, or how many times they seem to try and bury themselves, they just keep coming back and winning the series. A night after losing a game they should have won with their ace Corey Kluber on the mound, it was up to Carlos
“Shortstops make most plays. One remembers good plays made longer than one remembers plays not made.” Let’s dub this a “Derek Jeter.” By now, better defensive stats have become somewhat mainstream in baseball analysis. In general, we should now know that errors and assists aren’t the only statistics available. On the highest and most
This one was supposed to go down differently. With the Chicago White Sox playing well-below .500 ball, being kept afloat in the AL Central by only the Minnesota Twins, and the Cleveland Indians streaking off of their fourth straight win, Corey Kluber’s mere presence on the mound in the south side of Chicago should have cemented the Tribe’s
8:06 PM – I crunched some numbers earlier today that suggested the Indians need to shoot for at least 90 wins if they want to make the playoffs. I don’t know why I did that work, because you could probably just have hit a corpse on the nose with a ball-peen hammer before the
September is just about here. Time is running short for our Wahoos, but they refuse to give into the fight. (Eric Wedge would be so proud.) With their schedule in Soft Mode, the Tribe had to take advantage of what was in front of them. They started their nine-game stretch with three of the AL’s
Whoops! There it was. For the second consecutive series, the Cleveland Indians failed to close out the final game of a could-have-been sweep. There are bound to be games where things simply don’t click—bats go cold, an erstwhile rock solid bullpen implodes, Ryan Raburn spikes a ball into left-center field. Things happen. But during a
This is what is so frustrating about our Indians. Here they are, winners of seven of nine, going for a sweep of the Minnesota Twins with their ace Corey Kluber on the mound and the offense can’t even muster a single scoring chance outside of a solo blast from Zach Walters. Despite the 4-1 loss
Nick Swisher, Michael Bourn, Ryan Raburn, and Jason Giambi—four players who were all significant contributors on a 92-win playoff team last year that featured just twelve hitters1. This season, all four have spent time on the disabled list, and three of them have missed significant action2. So just how are the Cleveland Indians still standing and in the AL Wild
Don’t look now, but here they come. The Cleveland Indians, the consistent inconsistents, are in the midst of the soft part of their schedule. After taking two of three from the AL East-leading Baltimore Orioles, the next nine games on the docket featured three of the AL’s worst teams; Minnesota, Houston, and Chicago. The Twins
