The Atlanta Braves and Cleveland Indians will both be paying Nick Swisher not to play for them in 2016.
By the time this post is read, it might be out of date. The MLB Hot Stove can twist and turn in an instant. Perhaps, the Cleveland Indians will have awoken from their winter slumber to have made key signings or a significant trade to improve the outlook on the 2016 team. Alas, as the
A.J. Pollock would look mighty good in a Tribe uniform.
If you know anyone willing to take on $29 million in salary, give John Hart a call.
It was a nice vacation, but I have so many things to say about Cleveland sports! First up, the Indians and their monumental trade of Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn. Here’s what I discussed. Click here for a direct link to the MP3 file. Also, be sure to subscribe on iTunes. [Also see: Andre Knott
While the 2015 Cleveland Indians season has been absolutely disappointing, Mark Shapiro and Chris Antonetti apparently have used such frustrations as an impetus to start an overhaul on the team. The infrastructure rebuild started before the MLB trade deadline when David Murphy and Marc Rzepczynski were shipped off to contenders for prospects. However, such trades
If you Tribe fans ever dreamed of having Justin Upton on the Cleveland Indians, it’s time to hit the snooze button and dream of someone else. Justin Upton has apparently decided pre-emptively, via his no-trade clause, that he really doesn’t want to be traded to the North Coast to play for the Cleveland Indians. He
With today’s qualifying offer deadline, the MLB offseason is just getting started. Teams are being forced to make decisions on whether they’d like to protect certain players and potentially add a draft pick should they sign elsewhere. In Atlanta, catcher Brian McCann is expected to receive the $14.1 million offer while starter Tim Hudson is
Talk about a series to forget. The worst case scenario for your Cleveland Indians heading into the toughest nine-game stretch of their season was a slow start in Atlanta. I said beforehand I would take 5-4. After last night’s 3-1 loss to the Braves, it will take a sweep and another series win against the
Stop me if you have heard this one before: The Indians pitched well enough to win, but could never muster enough offense to overcome the deficit they faced. In what has become a disturbing trend, the bats continued their drought as the Indians were shut out in Atlanta 2-0 by lefty Alex Wood and four
A bit of surprising news on the free agency trail today: The Indians are reportedly on the short list of teams “in the market” for OF Michael Bourn, according to a tweet from ESPN and XM analyst Jim Bowden. Michael Bourn’s market includes: Sea, Cleve, Mia, Phil, NYM, TX — JIM BOWDEN (@JimBowdenESPNxm) December 21,
Entering today’s game against the Los Angeles Angels, the Cleveland Indians remain in first place in the AL Central with a 10-9 record. That’s quite an odd feat alone, but then one must discern which individual has been the most impressive thus far for the Tribe. After looking around a little bit, I’ve got a
Maybe the most obvious headline ever, I know. Then again, how scary would it be if that statement was false? Today, the Indians announced that Saturday’s game against the Reds is officially sold out. It is the first sellout since the home opener. Of course we all remember the crazy number of articles written about
Bottom of the 9th inning, two runners on, one out. The Tribe still doesn’t have a hit, but coming to the plate is Travis Hafner. First pitch down and away for ball one. Travis is in the driver’s seat against the young Braves pitcher. Second pitch low and now the count is 2 balls no
